Wisconsin, United States

Style: American Stout

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.

An excellent coffee stout from one of my favorite home-state breweries. Strong coffee nose and taste, not too bitter. Many coffee stouts have bitterness that overpowers all else, bit this doesn't.

Good but is missing something I can't put my finger on.

I do drink coffee stouts but I have to say this one really lets the coffee flavor through. Pours dark, didn't notice any head, a little carbonation. Delicious roasted coffee with dark bitter chocolate, sightly creamy, with a bitter finish. Letting it warm up a bit does seem to temper the bitterness. Oh, and its USDA Organic!
