This unique stout combines the flavor of roasted malts and Milwaukeeís 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.

12 ounce bottle poured into a brandy snifter. Pours a near black with a khaki colored head of foam that fizzles out quickly. The aroma has roasty bitterness and earthy coffee beans. The taste is more coffee. Its still a fairly bitter coffee, but it sweetens up with each sip. Medium bodied and medium carbonation.

Dark black un afflicted by the light of the room with a lasting brown head. Rich coffee scents. Nice creamy coffee taste, Smooth coffee taste fades nice leaving light coffee stick behind.

Poured from bottle into a tulip glass. Very small white head and minimal lacing. Taste is strongly coffee, with a bit of sweetness to start and bitterness to finish. Overall, itís pretty drinkable, but doesnít have any flavor or aroma that makes it stand out. A mildly good coffee stout when itís all said and done.

Itís not the best looking stout Iíve ever had as it lacks that fulsome head my learned off-sider kiwianer had on his. However, it is a beautiful shade of tawny with ruby notes and so looks similar to port. The aroma is coffee all over. Itís difficult to achieve subtlety with such a strong component, but there are also notes of plum and cherry tobacco. The flavour reflects this without the coffee being utterly overpowering. Thereís carbonation there that keeps things ticking along. For what is designated as a sweet stout, it isnít overly sweet at all which suits me down to the ground. A likable fellow this one.

The head is robust, the body black. It smells darkmalty, coffee, bit mild, bit roasty. The taste is darkmalty, roasty, mild aroma coffee, OK

MartzMimic (84) - Oklahoma, USA - FEB 17, 2014
Pours a deep brown with a foamy brown head. Smells of coffee, chocolate and a bit of malt. Big dark-roasted coffee taste that overpowers everything else. Very little bitterness. Slightly sweet. Medium mouth, but not very oily. Coffee stouts have to strike a good balance to be noteworthy. This one is missing the stout.

I love coffee. I love beer. Lakefront made a highly drinkable beer that is both beer AND coffee!? Its a good beer, not the best coffee stout I have ever had, but a great effort. Really give it a try.

From notes: Poured hazy cola-brown with a 1-finger tan head. Pleasant aroma of roasted coffee. Full body, lightly oily. Flavor of black coffee, with a light burnt note in the finish.
