3.78/5 rDev +12.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
I have to admit, I only grabbed this 6 pack because it was decently priced for a micro brew. Luckily, the low price does not reflect quality.
A - Deep black with a decent, two finger, off white head that lasts for a short time compared to most stouts.
S - Chocolate and carmel notes.
T - I really was expecting chocolate from the smell, but I did not notice any. It tastes of a pleasant coffee and light carmel.
M - better carbonation than most stouts. Not very creamy, but not too watered down. Balanced
D - Low price + easy mouthfeel + <6% ABV = a very drinkable 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.
