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.

Pours black with brown frothy head receding quickly. Pure espresso aroma, dark roasted coffee beans that have been sitting for 3 weeks. Medium body, first thing I notice is soy sauce, with more coffee. Simple.

BOSSbrewer (2302) - Arkansas, USA - MAR 12, 2015
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 (918) - 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.

jredmond (5916) - Manhattan, New York, USA - JAN 10, 2015
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!!

MaltOne (257) - Wisconsin, USA - DEC 28, 2014
Pours opaque coffee brown with ample pillowy brown tinged head. Aroma of coffee and moderate roasted malt, slightly sweet. Taste is like aroma... strong coffee, moderate malt. There’s a slightly odd interplay among the bitter coffee, sweet malt, and hint of hop bitter. It almost comes off as slightly sour beer, not a sweet stout. Overall, a definite homage to coffee but at the expense of the ,beer.

ARH (740) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 27, 2014
12oz bottle, poured into a shaker. The aromas of milk, coffee, nuts, and caramel blend together on the nose. It pours a dark, black-brown color with a soft, foamy tan head that retains a medium ring, fuzzy surface, and leaves a light, web lace. The taste is a medium sweet and very light bitter. The beer is smooth with a fuzzy carbonation and a medium light body. Coffee, chocolate, and caramel flavors come through with a fruity sweetness. The finish has a coffee ground / dirt or grit quality to it that sticks around shortly in the aftertaste.
