This beer pours black with a thin tan head and a thin lacing. It's aroma is of coffee with hints of smoke and roasted malt. The flavor leads with coffee followed through by a dark chocolate sweetness and faint nut notes. The flavor is light medium. Lakefront Fuel Cafe (Coffee Flavored Stout) is a good beer, smooth and a good example of the style. Recommended.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

APPEARANCE: A dark brown color with an light tan foam, carbonation appears strong. Good clarity, head retention is less than average.

SMELL: Coffee, Malt, and Chocolate Liquor aromas are the standouts in the nose.

TASTE: The taste is roasted and bitter, with some iced coffee elements as well. Coffee grounds, raw chocolate, char, and dark breads round out the brew firmly. Though ample bitterness exists, the hop flavor is rather muted. Coffee flavors are not as strong as other stouts brewed with it, but certainly agreeable nonetheless.

FEEL: Medium bodied, well carbonated feel with coffee lingering in the after taste.

OVERALL: Fuel Cafe delivers on the promise of an accessible coffee beer, and it works, but doesn't take it to the next level like some gourmet coffee brews. Barrel aging or adding more quality ingredients could really develop this one into something special.
