On Wednesday, Boulevard Brewing Company announced that Chocolate Ale, one of the brewery’s Smokestack Series offerings, will not be produced in 2013. The announcement does not mean that the beer has been permanently retired, only that it won’t be a part of next year’s lineup.

It’s no secret that Boulevard faced challenges during the two previous releases of the popular seasonal beer, not least of which was satisfying surprisingly strong consumer demand. The company is actively working on several initiatives to help overcome these challenges, for Chocolate Ale as well as its other Smokestack Series seasonal and limited release offerings.

Boulevard will keep consumers informed over the coming months through its website and social media outlets. In the meantime, fans of the Kansas City company can look forward to some new additions to Boulevard’s portfolio, including 80-Acre Hoppy Wheat Beer and Reverb Imperial Pilsner, both of which should be available later this summer.

I think this calls for some backlash. We should burn the brewery.

If people actually liked it, they'd keep making it.

It's a bullshit beer.

For girls who think "Ooh! Chocolate!"

I can't tell if you're this stupid or just trolling. The beer sold out in hours and was impossible to come by. They're not making it next year because of the logistical issues with manufacturing and distributing it due to its wild popularity.

I actually do think that they were unhappy with the product this year (I believe there were some quality control issues involved), which might account for this suspension. But to act like people don't like it is completely counter to reality.

That being said: I'm not a fan of it.

I had this last year in their tasting room and it was pretty good. I look forward to picking up a sixer in the store.

I really need to get down to Boulevard's factory and take the tour. I wonder if they would still have it available there?

Boulevard in KC and Schlafly in St. Louis are Missouri's best two breweries. Both make fine beers and are good companies. Each represents their city well.

As a company, Boulevard is pure win. Great products and the company stands behind them completely.

I totally agree. I've like boulevard since the wheat (all they carried here for the longest time.) When I tried schlafly at the bar before a Cards game, I heard angels singing.

I'm not too disappointed in this - it was an interesting beer, and it was pretty impressive how they captured the chocolate flavor, but not a beer I could drink more thank a goblet of. I'm a big fan of the smokestack series, though...

Not a huge loss, if you want to support Boulevard they have some much better offerings like Saison, Tank 7, pretty much the rest of their Smokestack Series.

Mothers brewery in Springfield has some good stuff as well. I tried a new one called Holy Moley at a beer tasting Saturday and it was very cool, it was brewed with chili peppers and cinnamon. Better than the Boulevard Chocolate Ale IMO and I love some Boulevard stuff.

As far as chocolate beers go, I like Young's Double Chocolate the most and Samuel Adams Chocolate Bock is a close second. When I tried the Boulevard, it was far too inconsistent. I would get a hint of cocoa in every third or fourth sip.

You are a fucking moron. Seriously. If you don't have a clue what the fuck you are talking about, keep your mouth shut. My thermostat is set higher than your IQ.
