Well named, ícause it tastes just like brewed coffee, not espresso, mind you, but American brewed coffee.

Very dark brown color with a tan head. Dark burned on the bottom of the coffee pot aroma. Sharp coffee flavors. I think I need to warm this one up and add some cream. Not a bad brew, just not my cup of joe.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: OCT 24, 2003 (Bells Brickskeller 10/03) Dark dark brown with mocha head. Aroma is RICH coffee. Taste is medium sweet coffee coffee, light grapefruit that's more noticeable in the swallow. Grapefruit adds a dimension of depth to what otherwise would be a fairly straightforward coffee beer. Medium/full creamy body. (7/4/8/5/16) (Bells Brickskeller 11/02) Black as pitch, with nice tan head. Aroma is mocha -- coffee bitter but also chocolate. Flavor is coffee coffee coffee, with some sweetness. (7/4/7/3/14)

To be blunt, I just donít like coffee at all, so itís largely my fault for trying a beer with the word "java" in it. Itís dark. Itís smells like coffee. I donít mean "kind of like coffee", it smells like COFFEE. The taste, not particularly surprisingly, is of COFFEE. TOO MUCH COFFEE. I swear, drink a pint of this and you wonít sleep for hours.

with little to medium head and a light tan head that leave a nice lacey finish. on the palate leaves a strong coffee flavor that doesnít readily leave the mouth. not a beer to slam or drink more than two or three.

This one was better thsn I expected... The coffee flavor was not to overpowering, it was a perfect blend. Another quality product from Larry B.

Shockingly good. Like a really fine stout with a shot of espresso. Overwhelming coffee flavor, with roasty and chocolatey notes, and a good solid bitterness as well. Great label too.
