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.

OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - FEB 18, 2013
A - Pours black with dark tan head that dissipates into a ring of bubbles. S - Smoky malt, earthy coffee, some dark chocolate, alcohol. T - Stale coffee, smoky malt, slight chocolate, a bit of hops, some swettness towards the end. Finish is a nutty coffee flavor. A little thin. The coffee is there but it’s a little weird. It has good flavors but they don’t quite line up. That being said, I enjoy this beer. I took a chance and bought a six pack. I would buy this again. Serving type: bottle 09-11-2010

TL;DR over-roasted coffee in a rather burnt (yet otherwise light) stout. The coffee is there and provides it some extra (much needed) flavor depth. If it only lived up to the brewer’s summary of the brew.......

Wanted this to be good, and really is nothing special. I taste the coffee, but zero depth, also very weak. Not great, decent, but nothing close to memorable

Bottle at home. Pours very dark brown to black. Think tan head. Aroma is coffee and some roasted malts. Flavor follows with nice coffee, some dark chocolate, roasted malts. Creamy mouthfeel. Very nice beer.

annunz123 (921) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 26, 2015
Coffee, cocoa, and nuts in a relatively mild aroma. Bitter start with roast coffee, followed by a sweet finish. I like sweet stouts, but this isn’t going to be everyone’s cup of tea.

robgibbens (419) - Gaithersburg, Maryland, USA - JAN 17, 2015
Pours into tulip glass black with a thick tan foam. Strong coffee aroma with roasted malts. Flavor is bitter with some coffee in the back. Mouthfeel is lighter than I would expect. Overall pretty decent and drinkable.

Bottle courtesy of Aunt HeyHey. Pours a deep brown body with thick brown lacing. Aroma is roast, sweet sugar and earth. Mouthfeel is medium with notes of coffee, green peppers, sweet sugar and sugary roast.

Pours dark, with no head. Smells of coffee, toasted malt. Tastes thin. Closer to a brown ale than a stout. Viewing the label I don’t see the appeal to using the term organic. It’s on the label 5 times!!
