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.

Cornfield (5465) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - NOV 23, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 12, 2005 This pours a deep, dark brown, almost black, with a thin, quickly fading brown head. The aroma is of roasted coffee and a touch of bitter chocolate. It’s surprizingly carbonated for a stout. The taste is of coffee with some bitterness. It’s got a dry, bitter coffee finish. Not bad, but nothing special.

Black ruby tinged body, with a small khaki head. Mild roastiness and some milk chocolate undertones in the aroma. Dry coffee bitterness and subtle notes of moka in the flavour. Not enough beer to support the coffee. Not for me. Thanks for sharing Doug.

Pours like your classic stout. Rich black decent, but quickly fading head. Very rich and bitter for a sweet. Something watery in the aftertaste ruins the overall effect, but it’s still very decent.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 18, 2004
Big coffee aroma. Big coffee taste. But that may be it. Some nice roastedness in the finish and aftertaste though. Mouthfeel is ok. A little one diminsional on the whole coffee thing.

sweet stout? not so sure. intensely roasty and coffee-like aroma, it really smells like someone poured a shot of espresso into my normal stout. slightly more balanced than bell’s java stout, but still not very balanced. interesting, fun to drink, but not spectacular.

Grandpa (327) - Verona, New York, USA - OCT 16, 2004
Small, short lasting head. Pleasant flavor, slightly bitter. The coffee is there, almost as an additive and not part of the brew. Lacked the robust body I anticipated in a stout.

Mangino (1027) - Mississippi, USA - SEP 20, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 21, 2004 Pours a dark black/brown with a small milk-choclate/fluffy head. Aroma is mostly coffee with a hint of maltiness. Flavor is very full, and mostly a bitter coffee taste. Malt balances the flavor. Very tasty, as I am a coffee lover as well! Great beverage from two great brewers.

heykevin (1274) - Decorah, Iowa, USA - SEP 19, 2004
Deep brown with fluffy head. Mollasses, tar, lightly vegetal aroma, with a hint of coffee. Heavy coffee flavor, (where was the aroma???) Some good dark malt flavors, very little roast character. Sweet coffee finish. Quite carbonated and a bit lacking in body. Decent, but unremarkable.

obisbeer (565) - Barcelona, SPAIN - SEP 8, 2004
Dark as night with minimal head. Coffee, molasses, chocolate, and more on the nose. Medium mouthfeel with nice acidity and lingering finish. Flavors of carmel, coffee, chocolate, and cherry(?). Nice well balanced beer.

PorterPounder (5448) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 4, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 20, 2009 Rerate Coffee aroma is a bit more prominent this time around. Original 3.2 Coffee like appearance, dark black, thin, but persistent mocha colored head. Funky, phenolic aroma upon opening but mellows out to a clean light chocolate aroma; bit of sulfur in there as well. Flavor has some coffee notes of course with wee bits of chocolate. Is a tad too carbonated and thin for a stout. Fades in the end.
