COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The satisfying elements of both stout and coffee come together in this full-bodied treat. A marriage of Sumatra's best with rich chocolate and roasted malt provides for a truly enlightening beer.

I hesitate to give anything a full score, but in my short beer rating life this is the beer I enjoyed the most. This stout is like the smoothest, blackest, coffee. Full bodied, this beer did not dissapoint by being too thin or carbonated. I just couldnít ask anything more from this beer, I do enjoy more of an alcohol warming but this is not an Impy and with a higher abv the palate might suffer. In the end this stout was exactly what I had hoped it to be and that is a first.

This is an excellent example of a coffe stout (but not michigans best). It has a nice dark color. the head has the color of a toasted marshmellow (mmmm marshmellow). the aroma is like someone just brewed up a nice pot of um..java. the only problem I have with this beer is the price, and I live in michigan, whatís up with that?

not much of a head, extreme coffee smell and taste. the stouty flavor comes through a lot more in this java stout than in the Bells cherry stout. seems more like drinking a cup of black coffee than a stout.

Delicious! Nice dark head, nice smooth texture, very chocolately. Kind of like Founderís Breakfast, but a little bitterness comes with the coffee taste on this one. Excellent on the whole; Iím very impressed.

Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - APR 10, 2005
A pitch black stout with a foamy brown head - beautiful! Unripe coffee aroma with a roasted tone. Lots of coffee in the flavor, itís like drinking coffee grounds! Good roasted tone. Definately different and quite strange, but tasty and very interesting!

Ungstrup (29992) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 5, 2005
A black beer with a nice dark chocolate brown head. The aroma is sweet with notes of fresh brewed coffee and chocolate. The flavor is sweet with powerful notes of coffee combined with notes of oil and chocolate, leading to a dry roasted end.

Cellar Temp. I was really looking forward to a coffee bonanza but instead this is more like a bitter stout. Smells like black patent and burnt coffee. Still has that magnificent texture that Bellís stouts have. After a few sips, getting more coffee but dosenít seem well balanced with the bitterness. Still, its not bad and worth trying.

thanks to the growler for this coffee like brew.the java pours a beautiful black with a small off-white head that leave nice lacing as it sits down.the first sniff gave me LOADS of roasted coffee beans,some chocolate,and malts.as the glasss met my lips my tounge gathered notes of well.....COFFEE!!!but thats not all,i also tasted a bit of chocolate,hops,smoke,and alcohol.the coffee does dominate,but as the same time the other aromas/tastes compliment it well.

Bottle Served in plastic cup (Hotel Room) Black Brew with a nice beige head. Burnt espresso aroma, faint fruitiness and some fusels. Is the cup dissolving? Nice medium body, black malt dominates the taste ,very dry with a nice roastiness.Finishes with coffee and bitter chocolate. Draft please!
