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.

Absolutely fabulous with dessert! Try this one with a chocolaty brownie or a creamy tiramisu, or keep it simple and enjoy with fresh berries and vanilla ice cream. Ideal Serving Temp: 58-60° F

    Creamy, malty, and full-bodied, the Sierra Nevada Stout is satisfyingly rich. Caramel and Black malts give the Stout its deep, dark color and pronounced roasted flavor.

    Appearance- Black in color with no almost no head and minimal lacing.

    Smell- Faint aroma of coffee and chocolate.

    Taste- Light flavor of bitter coffee with roasted malt notes and some chocolate.

    Mouthfeel- On the light end of medium bodied. Smooth and creamy with a slightly dry finish. Light amount of carbonation.

    Overall- Not a terrible beer, but if you are going to advertise as a coffee flavored stout I would expect a stronger coffee flavor (or stout flavor).

    Poured into a pint glass this beer is dark chocolate brown. A small smattering of head dissipates and leaves a bit of lace. If looks mean anything I'm liking it so far. The nose is less impressive. I get a hint of coffee but for a beer named for an actual coffee shop in Milwaukee it's not exactly full blown java. The flavor is an even bigger let down. Uber smoked malt is the main profile player here. It tastes more like smoked meat then coffee. Hints of caramel and bitter hops can be percieved if you really try. It just comes back to smoke though. The beer is medium to light bodied. Very thin with moderate carbonation. This is maybe the weakest offering from a brewery I expect alot from. Well they can't all be winners. I will stop by the brewery in the near future and sample this straight from the cows udder. Maybe if it's fresh it will come across a tad better.
