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.

UPDATED: NOV 29, 2004 Mmm coffee, though I didn’t taste as much as it sounds some others have. I for one found Java to be balanced- a great stout. Though this is twice now that Bell’s stouts have given me the shits....

Solid black with dark brown head. Aroma of coffee and light roast. Flavor is of a heavy roast coffee. Finish is smooth and surprisingly light and creamy. Very enjoyable.

can you say coffee? scent is very coffee’ee. taste of coffee bean and burnt roast. a slight hint of chocolate. The coffee taste is a little overwelming, so I would probably not purchase this again. it is still a well constructed beer with good complexity.

Bottle. The beer is a a perfect java stout. there is nothing but malts and coffee to this aroma and appearance. everything about this beer is coffee. the taste is a full bodied, wonderfully aromatic, and bitter coffee flavor. the best part of this beer is that the aftertaste is not too sweet like most other bigger stouts. a great taste

Pours opaque and black with creamy, toffee colored head. Nose of chocolate, caramel and a bit of the best part of waking up. Smooth on the palate with slight bitterness and plenty of roasted malt notes. Almost takes on a porter-like sharpness that is not unpleasant but unexpected. Finished thick with lots of chocolate and coffee and a hint of spice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a nice black with a fair cocoa head. Aroma is of coffee and coffee (and some roasted malts). An awesome coffee stout. Doesn’t have too much else going on, some roasted malts, maybe a little hops at the end, but most of the bitterness if from the coffee. Great finish and after taste.

bottle. coffee coffee coffee. and burnt coffee at that. aroma was nice and inviting but the flavor was a bit too burnt for me. came off more like used or old burnt coffee grounds rather than roasted or burnt fresh beans. will definately have another and see if it grows on me or not.

I call this breakfast beer. Super dark, loads of coffee aromas and intense coffe flavor. Also has a nice hops bite. This beer is different, but I like it.

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 couldn’t 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.
