Boulevard Brewing Co. offering refunds on bad Chocolate Ale

KANSAS CITY — A Kansas City brewer is offering refunds on a limited number of batches of its popular chocolate beer because it didn't taste right.

The Kansas City Star reported Boulevard Brewing Co. has announced it will give refunds to people who bought its Chocolate Ale from three batches that didn't meet company standards.

This was the second year Boulevard offered the chocolate beer ahead of Valentine's Day. After quickly running out last year, Boulevard more than doubled the amount of Chocolate Ale it produced.

That didn't prevent its supply from running out well before Valentine's Day.

The company said inspections of the beer after it was released showed a few batches had an unwanted flavor.

Those seeking a refund must prove they purchased beer from the affected batches.
