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.

Expectedly gorgeous black pour. Aroma sadly redolent of church-basement decaf Folgers. A daring and successful blend of stout and coffee, certainly, with the only shortcoming being that the coffee did not taste like a clean, solid, full-body roast that might accompany a clean stout. Alas, I was trained on coffee before I freelanced into beer. However, VERY well done, Kalamazoo, and the flavors blended better than I could have hoped for. The hops were also well balanced. I may not try it again, but it was a fun experience.

Bottle. Pours a dark dark brown with a thin tan head. The aroma is pure roasted malts.The flavor is excellent. Coffee (obviously), smoke, brown sugar. Nice creamy finish. One of the better coffee stouts available.

Pours black with brownish thick head. Smells of chocolate, fresh coffee and roasted malt. Super smooth tastes of sweet chocolate, roasted malt and a cup of dark roast coffee. Pretty amazing. Light body medium carbonation. Only negative is it could become a bit sweet if you were to have a few.

UPDATED: NOV 10, 2012 Tap at eccentric. S: Like sniffing a chilled cup of heavily dark roasted coffee, slight chocolate bitterness A: Just like Kalamazoo with a slightly darker head T: Cold carbonated coffee.. this is just too much for me, and I am a heavy coffee drinker P: Medium bodied, lingers too long considering the taste O: I respect this beer, but it is not for me

Pours black with minimal brown head. Powerful roasted coffee aroma with just a bit of malty sweetness. Sweet and roasted coffee flavors. One dimensional but it is what itís supposed to be.

Bellís Java Stout 12 oz bottle Moderate pour in an English pint Packaged 12/06, percolated 01/07. Served at room temperature. Poured black, with clear mahogany highlights, with a large mostly lasting light brown frothy head with good lacing. Smelt of strong rich coffee roast, with anise, vanilla cream and dark chocolate accents. Taste was upfront strong creamy rich bitter and moderately sweet coffee followed by more strong coffee bitterness, soy sauce, black earth, and a moderate amount of dark chocolate sweetness on a long bittersweet finish. Palate was medium bodied, creamy, lively carbonated and lightly astringent and alcoholic. Overall, first off coffee stouts are my thing. This version has monster coffee taste with a chocolate finish, but the strength of the coffee overshadows other tastes. Tasty and drinkable overall.

A lot of coffee flavor in this one with an export style stout backbone. Pours black, rich head. Coffee, chocolate and roast dominate. Very unique. For the coffee lover.
