look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

Pours black in color with a thick dark brown foamy head. Soapy lacing down the side of the pint. Aroma consists of roasted malt, coffee and dark chocolate. Good, but could be a little stronger. The mouthfeel is medium to full-bodied. Full flavors of coffee and roasted malt. No sweetness evident in this stout what-so-ever. Coarse bitterness strikes midway through and carries into the finish. The bitterness dries the back of the tongue and top of the mouth.

Brewed with coffee from local bean roaster Alterra and made exclusively (although easy to find at most stores) for the Fuel Cafe. This is a very enjoyable Coffee Stout, but tends to lean more toward the bitter side. Somewhat forgotten and under-rated IMO.

3.41/5  rDev +1.8%
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.
