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.

Coffee grounds nose with chocolate. Thick head and syrupy dark color. Very esspresso like with some berry and carmel. Slightly bitter finish, incredible...

Nearly black with tan head and some lacing. The aroma is of old coffee, Italian pastries, mold, and cooked canned peas (seriously). Flavor is overhwelmingly old coffee, alcohol is prominant, metallic, tobacco burn, ash, smoke, bitter finish. Fairly full bodied, thick, soft carbonation. Rather one-dimensional. So I drink strong black coffee routinely, but this just doesnít work here. It gets a little better as you plough through the initial first sips. Thereís probably a good stout buried under that coffee madness.

poured dark brown with brown head arma duh coffee, flavor coffe, chocolate. I was a little hesitant about buying this becausse of the java because of past experiences I have had with things with coffee flavor in it but this was differant. the flavor of the coffee ws like the cuban blend that I like to drink strong bout not bitter a very good beer.

Dark Color. No Head. Coffee flavor very evident. For the Coffee Lovers out there...this is the beer to try.

This is a stout that combines two of my favorite things in the world: coffee & beer. Not just a little bit of coffee, a whole lot of it. You can smell it on the nose, but as soon as you taste it the flavor is intense. Its a deep black with a tiny head

I brought a six pack of Java Stout back from a recent trip to Cleveland. It has such a unique flavor I held off rating it unitl I sampled it a few times. Heavy coffee aroma, deep dark body, tan lacing, and subtle bitterness. Alcohol content is high for a stout that tastes a bit watered down at times. Iím unsure if this could be an everyday stout, but every Java Stout Iíve had has been a treat.

Got to give them credit for the aggressive direction of this brew, but it is a little haphazard in the execution. Smells and tastes like fresh coffee beans. Jet black color and sticky spongy head. Odd blend that grows on you. Espresso-like finish. Interesting.

Thanks to Nexxus for this one. Pours black, with medium tan head. Aroma of malt, coffee, chocolate. Tastes rich, malty, with a big coffee taste, and hints of vanilla, chocolate. Finishes roasty, with more coffee, and a nice mouthfeel. Excellent stout.

UPDATED: OCT 13, 2005 Holy, java aroma on this stout. The nose is all about coffee. The beer displays classic Bellís head and lace work. The palate is full flavored and surprising drinkable for a 7.5% brew. The palate is well, very much like a chilled latte. This beer is a very complex after dinner drink. I gave up caffeine for new years, but its ok to cheat tonight. Long strong black coffe finish that dries up very well.

A very dark stout with a moderate tan head. Smells of coffee grounds. Smokey coffee flavor is very evident. A bit thin in the finish but overall very enjoyable.
