3.51/5 rDev +4.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
A: Dark brown/black, only a half-finger head of light tan, quickly dissipates, minimal lacing.
S: Intensely coffee, old burnt coffee. Dark chocolate. Roasty. Something else seems a little off... kind of like a campfire but not in an appealing sense.
T: Less coffee on the taste than one would expect. A little thin on the taste. Some acidity, a touch of sourness. Roasted barley malts.
M: A little high on the carbonation. Medium-bodied. Wet on the finish.
O: Not terrible, but not something I'd have again. A lot better offerings out there. Definitely an interesting take on a coffee stout.

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.
