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.

An okay sweet stout. Pours dark brown, has a little coffee, though not as much as you’d think considering the name. Tried for the first time in 2008.

12 oz. bottle (best by 1-31-2018) pours an opaque dark brown/black with one finger tight beige head that leaves good lacing. Aroma is as expected: roasted coffee, chocolate, and cream. Taste is slightly sweet with a hint of smokiness in the finish - not very complex, yet enjoyable. Body is medium with soft carbonation and a creamy mouthfeel. This one comes off weaker than its stated ABV and thinner than I prefer my stouts, but proved enjoyable anyway.

pours a very dark brown with a medium tan head. Roasted malt and strong coffee aroma. Rich sweet malty taste, then the black coffee bitter kicks in and hangs on. Hints of dark chocolate. Daddy like.

Bottle from AJ’s Beer Warehouse. Aroma of coffee and roasted malts. Kind of one-note.

bulldogops (2907) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 2, 2017
Rating #2555 - 2016.05.05 - Bottle at Bainbridge in Philly. Dark brown pour with a weak off white head. Cocoa and vanilla on the nose, and big coffee earthy malt notes. Taste is very rich in coffee flavour and mild vanilla bean. Balanced for a sweet stout, very palatable indeed. Nicely put together.

UPDATED: JUN 30, 2017 Strong sweet coffee smell...taste is dark malt...coffee not as strong as you would think...medium sweet, no hops...bitter finish that detracts...fairly one dimensional..had pretty warm though

Poured into a becher pint glass, the appearance was a sturdy black color with a finger’s worth of eggshell white foamy head that slid off at a decent pace. Sly lace. The aroma had a hefty dose of milk chocolate melding with some dark roasted malts and intertwining with a little bit of butterscotch and coffee creamer. Some roasted coffee beans trying to present a light balance. The flavor leaned towards the sweet side slightly with a presentable roastiness sliding in right before the aftertaste. Semi-sticky little finish, somewhat sweet. The palate was just a touch under medium bodied with a fair sessionable quality about it. Carbonation felt good, seemed to rub right into the grab of the roastiness fairly nice. ABV seemed a bit under than what was projected. Overall, pretty good sweet stout, a bit more balanced than others of it’s style.

I poured it from the bottle into a glass. It pours black with a small, tan head. The aroma is coffee and chocolate. The taste is coffee, chocolate, and slight hops. This is pretty nicely balanced and tasty.
