4.25/5 rDev +26.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
Poured into pint glass
A: extremely thick pour. Beautiful and dark
S: Aromas of thick morning coffee and fresh espresso beans. its like stepping into my favorite coffee shop. Sweet malt
T: Straightforward espresso bean and mocha dominate the palate. Malts don't intrude too far in the way and it just lets the espresso do the talking. Absolutely refreshing for a coffee stout(never thought i'd say that)
M: Great level of pretty strong carbonation has a cleansing effect upon the palate make this also drinkable
O: this is an awesome espresso stout. I wish i could buy this by the case but since I'm huddled away in a whole in Montana this'll have to do. the most concentrated espresso flavor i've had yet in a beer. Good job lakefront, always a fan of your brews

3.41/5 rDev +1.5%
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.
