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.

A fairly thick stout with coffee grounds. Wake up and smell the coffee. Java and roast including burnt ground taste, Ok for some, but not my type of stout. Marvellous appearance, with the dark head. Creamy yet mouth numbing. Bitter and roasty aftertaste.

Bottle. Nice roasty coffee aromas. Nice dark black color with a creamy tan colored head. Strong flavors of coffee with some chocolate overtones. Coffee flavors dominate the front of the palate and finishes with a slight bitter coffee aftertaste. This is a pretty good beer. The aroma and flavor are a nice touch.

I really dug this beer...and I don’t even like coffee that much. Poured a decent sized cocoa colored head and was black as hell (amazing creamy lacing). Smell was COFFEE, COFFEE, COFFEE, and a little bit of malt. Taste was even more COFFEE than the aroma, with a bit of alcohol and a nice bitter finish. The best part of this for me was the mouthfell...it was creamy like all Bell’s stouts...gotta love that shit. Definitely going to try and make a float with one of these bad boys.

12oz - packaged on December 14, 2005 - Aroma is thickly laden with roasted coffee and chocolate malt. Creamy like a mocha with whip cream on top. Pours black with little head and decent lacing. Flavor is more pronounced than aroma with coffee sticking to the entire inside of my mouth and lingering there. A bit of hops also shows up in the finish. Palate is sticky and creamy. A tasty coffee stout.

After pouring, I held my glass up to the light, and was unable to see even the slighest hint of light though this beer. I don’t think I have ever seen anything darker or more opaque than this. Thin brown head sat atop this almost until the end. I really didn’t get much beer aroma or taste out of this, it reminded me more of a super dark well roasted coffee. Tick and delicious palate, lots of roast coffee, a bit of bitter chocolate, and a wee bit of soy sauce.

deep black color with small brown head. Very roasty, some moderate sweetness, i might have liked a little more sweetness, however. served cold it is a tad acidic tasting and sharp and mellows as the beer warmed. ive had better coffee stouts.

Opaque black in color with a light brown head. Intense roasted coffee aroma. Roasted coffee bitterness in the flavor, with notes of chocolate. Full-bodied and well-balanced.

Poured a black black with a fizzy light brown head. Aroma was a roasted coffee with mild hints of alcohol sweetness burried deep within. Flavor was bursting with a nice roast coffee and chocolate. Batch #7170 this is allot more balanced than I remembered last years edition.
