City Beverage, the Official Beer Sponsor of The Less Desirables, presents Early Riser Coffee Porter from Boulevard Brewing Company, The Less Desirables Beer of the Week.
So, we’re having this beer tonight because it’s a special night. Tonight is the SEVENTH anniversary show of The Less Desirables. The beer isn’t necessarily the celebration, but the show is. I had this particular beer because we’re having desserts on the show tonight. Brittany McGee of the Humble Bee Shoppe is bringing stuff for us to taste, including some chocolate stuff. So, heck, let’s get a malty, chocolatey, coffee-flavored drink to go along with it. Boulevard makes some solid stuff, so I figured we’d just give this a chance, n’est-ce pas?
BeerAdvocate rates it 88 (Very Good) with a Bros Score of 91 (Outstanding). Untappd has it as 3.76 caps out of 5. RateBeer has it at 94 Overall with a 96 in Style. The beer has 5.2% ABV. I look forward to it and the desserty things. Have you had it? What did you think? If you’ve not had it or just have a hankering for more, head down to City Beverage and grab your sixer-in-a-box and give it a shot. Tell them that it’s the beer of the week and get 5% off your order! Tune in tonight to hear what Caitlin, Danielle, Brittany, any other guests that may show up and I think about it.
Until tomorrow, same blog channel…
