Brewed by:
Lakefront Brewery, Inc.
Wisconsin, United States

Style: American Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.40%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
This unique stout combines the flavor of roasted malts and Milwaukee's renowned Fuel Cafe coffee. Pours a deep, dark color with a beautiful creamy tan head.

Coffee aromas dominate the nose, with a background of roasted grain. The fine balance of mild hops, the gentle acidity of choice coffee and the full mouth feel from roasted malt barley make this an unforgettable brew.

Bottle poured into shaker pint. Jet black beer with two finger beige head, low carbonation

Smell: coffee and booze

Taste: coffee, burnt malt, and a hint of hop at the finish

Mouthfeel: smooth elixir

Overall, this is a fine beer, not glamorous, but good! I'd seek this one out on draught!

12oz bottle into a brooklyn pint glass. 10/30/12 bottling date

Pours a pitch black with a very mild head. Smell is big on roasted malts, though im not picking up much coffee. Taste is sort of "harsh" for a stout. the cocoa notes are definitely there but again, not much coffee flavor. There is an offputting feel on the nose/back of the throat that hurts drinkability some. Medium bodied/low carbonation.

overall this is a decent beer, just dont go out of your way to try it

If you're looking for a good coffee stout look no further. This is quite good. It's one of two that I've had and I couldn't pick which one I liked more so I'd say try this if you want to get into it. I will say, if you don't like the flavor of coffee do NOT try this because you won't like it. That being said I think it's fairly accessible; I found it at my local Friar Tucks in Fenton. Enjoy!

Fuel Cafe pours a black color with a smaller lacing head. Their is a sweeter roasted aroma, with hints of coffee. The taste has a mellow sweetness, strong roasted flavors, with good hints of coffee. Nice rather full flavors, a bit too carbonated. Overall a nice easy drinking coffee stout.
