Fuel - a great name for this one, as you could probably run a jet on it.

Very dark brown, not much head to speak of. Slight coffee aroma. Tons of coffee flavor, which helps to hide the fact that it's at 8.5% ABV. Pretty heavy mouthfeel, but not quite like a Guinness. Then again, what is?

It was a bit of a battle to throw this one down - probably best to start with this then move on to some lighter options. Unless you have a jet to run.

Currently on tap at the New York Avenue location of the Capitol City Brewing Company...

A: Dark brown... not as deep and dark or as black as most RIS's.

S: Good scent of roasted malts and coffee, faint hints of chocolate.

T: Good taste of roasted malts and coffee with a faint chocolately taste, not much else but good. No dark fruit charachter associated with RIS.

M: Medium bodied, low carbonation and slightly dry

D: Very good beer. Lacks the complexiy and fullness of other RIS.

On draft at Capitol City Brewing Co. in Virginia.

The beer is dark brown, approaching black, with a finger's width of beige head. The aroma brings coffee, chocolate, and roast, respectively. Nicely done. Coffee leads the way, though chocolate and roast notes are omnipresent. Medium bodied with appropriate carbonation. Alcohol is masked quite well by the bold coffee flavors. A solid beer. I would have this again.
