Style: American Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.40%

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.

A: Almost completely black with some light getting through the edge showing garnet and good clarity. The long lasting, medium tan head is made of rocky foam.

S: My initial impression is that of coffee and cream with some chocolate and a small shot of Kahlua. It smells pretty good for a coffee beer which is promising. No hops aroma detected. A light fig fruitiness and some caramel malt aroma.

T: The taste is matches the nose with big time coffee and cream with a some chocolate and enough alcohol to give the impression of a short shot Kahlua. There is a light hops bitterness and no flavor hops. The balance is slightly to the sweet with a medium malt sweetness. The finish is off dry with a roasty bitterness and chocolate aftertaste.

M: A medium-full body with moderately-light carbonation. There is a light creaminess and a touch of alcohol warmth.

O: This is at the sweeter end of the American style but a very well done coffee stout.
This one would be great with dessert or at dinner with a coffee dust steak.

12oz bottle poured into pint glass

A- Dark black, minimal mocha head with virtually zero lacing. Head fades fast into a ring around glass.

S- Not a whole lot of coffee and chocolate which I was expecting. Subtle malt sweetness undertones.

T- Coffee, roasted malts, toffee and a tad bit of chocolate.

M- Medium bodied. Smooth and creamy up front and ends dry.

O- A decent beer. Not a whole lot of coffee flavor but the brew seems to be balanced nicely and is enjoyable.
