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.

PlainsDrifter (93) - Adelphi, Maryland, USA - APR 18, 2011
Pours dark brown with a very small tan head. Very little carbonation. Sweet, coffee flavor a little sour, burnt aftertaste. Drinkable, not bad, but not great.

MrTipple (3586) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 17, 2016
Intense coffee, bitter, dark, toasted malts, cacao. Hazy, dark brown, small, creamy, beige head. Light bitter. More dark, toasted malts, cacao, coffee, soft carbonation, medium bodied. Just about OK Sweet Stout, bit harsh coffee in aroma, lacks complexity in palate. Keg at brewery, Milwaukee.

tmoreau (3714) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - AUG 16, 2016
On tap at the Heartland Bar in the Sheraton Madison, WI., dispensed to a shaker displaying a black/brown color, with a frothy layer of tan head foam, and waves, spots & streaks of lacing. The nose was malty and nicely creamy, but not heavily roasted, with chocolate, moderate coffee, some caramel sweetness, and subtle hints of spice, herbs, and greenery. Medium bodied, with soft carbonation, the taste added a roasted & earthy bitterness that expressed some dryness into the finish. Described as an Organic Coffee Stout, and a Sweet Stout here, but only a moderate amount of both were presented. Not overly robust, but flavorful, nonetheless.

Distinct coffee aroma with malty, toasty notes. Pours dark brown with creamy tan quick foam. Rich, roasted malty flavor with strong coffee. Coffee becomes a little bitter at the end. Medium body with moderate fizziness.

Poured from a nicely chilled 12 oz. bottle into a pint glass, clean. 1st, coffee; then not coffee but stout; then, coffee with cream and sugar, then stout and finally, stout coffee with stout; both black, both good. A tasteful gas, this.
