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.

Liked the coffee aroma/flavor in this one...but the rest of the stout was a bit too sweet for my taste. Also, the alcohol was a bit too low for a stout (I don’t generally endorse a session stout, since I think a stout, by nature, is not really for a session).

Pours a thin tan head on a dark brown colored body. The aroma is a nice mixture of dark chocolate, roasted malt and milk. The taste has lots of coffee notes: bitter dark chocolate, sweet roasted malt and milk. Mild bitterness at the end. The texture is crisp with a soft edge. Great aroma and a descent tasting beer.

"for the style (this one was the reason i bought the mixer) it was a bit of a letdown. everything from aroma (some coffee and sweet malts) to the body, look, etc...all average. pleasant enough, but not something i’ll go back for. i was hoping for more..."

Delivers more coffee than stout tastes, and a bit sweet, but that’s perfectly fine with me!

Sweet stout with a lot of chocolate on the front and some hints of vanilla and caramel. Perhaps it was because I was expecting more of a coffee stout (given the name), but a rather limited roastiness and a sort of one dimensional flavor profile. There is certainly some coffee on the nose, but overall just a decent stout.

Darker opaque brown with some golden bits. Dry coffee, damp, earthy. Touch of vanilla, some molasses. Bitter, some sweetness, caramel. Heavy, chewy mouthfeel. Some oiliness. Decent beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle poured into a tulip glass.

A - Pours jet black with a small one finer tall mocha colored head leaving little to no lacing down the glass.

S - Smells of coffee, dark roasted malt, dark fruits, and a touch of vanilla. It smells a bit stale to me and it isn’t even that old.

T - Starts off with lots of dark roasted coffee up front slowly giving way to a mix of dark roasted chocolate malt and a light vanilla sweetness. The body is very thin and it makes it very hard to finish the whole thing. The finish has lots of dark roast, lingering for some time.

M - Heavy body and flavor with moderate carbonation. Thin, watery, feel with lots of dark roast in the finish.

O - I have had better. I think it has potential but it fell well short of my personal expectations.

[ Keg ][ 5oz ][ Lakefront ][ $1.50 ][ Plastic Cup ][ 8.18.14 ]
>> Nitro foam atop a dark red pour. Toasted bread nose. Taste is green jalapeńo style coffee and huge cloying sugar. Dusty finish. Hard to get through. Decent.

bottle @ John’s Grocery / Iowa City IA --- Clear dark ruby brown color, brown head cover, bands of lace. Good aroma of chocolate and malt. Taste is roasted malt that grows as it moves to a lightly bittered finish. Simple, straightforward, enjoyable.
