COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This unique stout combines the flavor of roasted malts and Milwaukee’s reknown FUEL CAFE coffee. The fine balance of mild hops, the gentle acidity of choice cofee and the sweetness of the barley makes this an unforgettable brew.

Towey1989 (1448) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 26, 2015
Bottle at The Roebuck, Leek (Titanic) Pours a deep brown colour with a thin beige head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, some caramel, slight vanilla, a little roasted malts and subtle dark fruits, maybe strawberry quality. Taste of roasted malts, coffee, some chocolate, subtle caramel and earthy bitterness. Medium bodied and moderate carbonation. A dry, roasted coffee bitterness in the finish. Nice aroma of sweet caramel and chocolate but the taste is quite roasty and earthy, like cold espresso. It’s ok but not sessionable.

madvike (3165) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 24, 2015
Bottle - Nice black pour with a creamy light tan head. Nose is metallic, with dark, chocolatey roast, acidic coffee notes, and a bit of vanilla. Taste is the same, with more of a mocha milkiness to it. Thin, watery body with ample carbonation. Not enough coffee and not a beer I’d go to again.

HuskerTan (1420) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - DEC 9, 2015
Bottle. A- Coffee, chocolate, roasty, subtle vanilla. A- Black color, dark liquid, light brown head. T- Roasty, bitter chocolate, slightly dry, coffee. P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, dry roasty finish. O- This was tasty but still left some to be desired. The coffee on the nose is nice but doesn’t translate to the palate more than just a bit. A tad messy but again, it was decent.

Good amount of coffee on the nose and the tongue. The head was thinner than I like and the body was light medium and it was nearly black.

weitz15 (528) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 22, 2015
Light, coffee bean aroma. Flavor is heavy bean malts, and actually lighter on the coffee flavor.

bnoel09 (569) - Elk Grove, California, USA - NOV 22, 2015
Poured from the bottle into a shaker glass. Black with a tan head that settles quickly. Aroma is roasted malt with some chocolate notes. Flavor is quite roasty, but like the aroma it doesn't have much else going on. Not really picking up the coffee in the aroma or the flavor. Medium bodied with fairly high level of carbonation. Decent brew but very one note.

Theydon_Bois (15537) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 19, 2015
Bottle at GBBF ’15, day 3, 13/08/15. Extremely dark mahogany brown with a moderate light beige swirl. Nose carries good coffee vibes, burnt caramel, light spice, dark malts. Taste comprises sweet coffee, biscuit, toffee, light spice. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Decent coffee number.

omhper (22607) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - OCT 7, 2015
Bottled at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Black, beige head. Huge coffee aroma. Mid dry with light-medium body and clean, rounded mouthfeel. Black pepper and strong coffee, some wood. Fairly low bitterness, coffee lingers.
