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 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.

Espresso (!) aroma with a chocolatey head. Wow! Bitter coffee flavor, as well (like iced coffee). Not as watery as iced coffee, though. It has some mild creaminess in the flavor, as well (very light). Balanced by a slightly rich, sweet, malty flavor. A good beer. Very interesting.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
One of my favorites, but I’m a real coffee fiend. Rich black with slight brown-sugar head, rich coffee aroma and taste with layers of dark roastiness, bittersweet chocolate, and just a hint of peat. Rich smooth body but sharp enough to remind you it’s got coffee in it. Would it be wrong to drink this for breakfast?

Thanks to Sammy for the Trade. Simply phenomenal. Medium roasted coffee beans scent. Perfect black in colour with dark beige lacing head. Tastes like roasted coffee, no surprise, not as strong as other coffee stouts I’ve tried. Thick body, bitter finish, lingering lovely aftertaste. Similar body to the Bell’s Kalamazoo Stout. Bell’s really knows how to make a stout, and make it well. Wish I could get some more of this in Toronto.

Batch # 7221. Poured to almost black in color with a tan head. The aroma was a fantastic roasted coffee. But, the flavor was coffee, and kind of tasted like grounds. Very creamy though. A good brew.
