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.

Wow, does this have caffeine in it? Huge rocky head that leaves Belgium lace all over the glass. Robust coffee aroma and taste. Just amazing. Possibly the perfect combination of coffee and stout flavorings.

The only beer that I can compare this to is Redhook’s Double Black Stout, but the Java Stout blows Redhook away. The aroma remids me of coffe grounds and it had an intense coffee flavour, without being overly bitter. Another quality stout from Bells.

Incredibly rich coffee flavor, fairly spicy and hoppy. Large expandin head, which is not typical for this brewery...thick and flavorful. Might be a little too rich towards the end, but overall and enjoyable (and filling) brew.

Wow. This beer is wonderful. It certainly lives up to its name. Very strong coffee flavor, and aroma. Full bodied, good stuff.
