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.

Pours a nice black. Smell is roasted malt and fresh coffee. Taste is crazy fresh coffee and toast. Reasonably thick with a long toasty finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Great pour as you get a whopping big tan head. First smell doesn’t really give you the idea of the taste that awaits. Fist sip and I am reminded that I like my coffee with a shit load of sugar. Oh well as this one definatley lives up to the java billing.

Bottle. Pours an inky black with a minimal tan head. Strong coffee aroma, some chocolate. Taste is coffee, chocolate malt, some sweetness, light bitterness. Perfectly balanced. Medium-full bodied, soft, and creamy. Excellent.

BigBang (299) - Indiana, USA - MAY 19, 2007
Overall good stout. For a strong coffee stout, I would not prefer this over others, such as the Red Hook Double Black Stout. Very strong coffee flavor and a bit bitter. Lots of flavor and worth trying.

Pours dark dark with a small tan head. Smells like sweet chocolatey roasted coffee. The flavor is bittersweet chocolate and lots of coffee. A nice slight bitterness on the finish.

Rich color. Has a lightly sweet flavor, but very strong coffee taste. I did not like this one that much since it had a brutal bitter finish.

Black like coffee and it actually looked like coffee too.
Smells like chocolate and coffee. Some toffee undertones too.
Tastes like coffee that was brewed with malt. I"m not a coffee fan but I like this stuff.
Low carbonation but not pseudo-flat like some of the others (Expedition & Cherry Stout). Full and smooth on the tongue. Nice.

Big coffee nose and dry, dry, dry finish. This is my least favorite of the Bell’s stouts, although that is a bit like being my least favorite denomination of currency: some is still better than none. Thank you. I’ll be here all week.

Wow. Aroma is all coffee. Taste is a big blast of coffee followed by dark chocolate. Finishes with some bitterness. Thin mouth feel. Good carbonation.
