Lakefront Fuel Cafe Review

Name: Lakefront Fuel Cafe
Style: Stout
ABV: 6.4%
IBUs: 17-19

Next up in the Lakefront Brewery Sampler Pack is a beer called Fuel Cafe, which is a stout brewed with Fuel Cafe coffee, who are also based out of Milwaukee. However, like many of Lakefront's beers, it is USDA certified organic and uses all organic ingredients, everything from the barley right down to the coffee beans used. According to Lakefront, they are the first brewery in the United States to have a certified organic beer.

Appearance - Pitch black with a thin darker tan colored head with some moderate lacing left along the sides of the glass.

Aroma - Chocolate malts & roasted barley. I'm getting some very faint coffee ground notes but it's overshadowed by the malts and roasted barley.

Taste - Chocolate malts & coffee grounds with the latter of the two flavors carrying through the rest of the palate while the back end opens up to some light bitter hoppiness. As for the aftertaste, it's just more of that coffee ground bitterness.

Overall, it's a good stout and the coffee adds a nice touch to the flavor. If you're a fan of dark beers and/or coffee, then this is the beer for you.

Lakefront Fuel Cafe - 8.5/10
