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 black with tan head that slowly diminishes. Aroma is smoky and full of coffee with hints of chocolate. The body is medium to full. The taste is all about coffee. Realy nice roated flavors. with a lingering bitter finish. very nice.

All around what you would expect. Has a very strong coffee aroma and taste. A little watery though.

Aroma of coffee, ash, dust. Appears an opaque black color with a small deep mahogany head that dissipates. Flavor is complex - sweet chocolate elements combine with a mocha tang, all finishing with an excellent fresh brewed coffee flavor. Palate is medium-thick and creamy, and it certainly helps enhance the coffee aftertaste. Overall, an interesting brew. My thanks to joeybgood for this fine sample.

Definitely looks like expected. Pours an almost black color. One-finger head of creamy espresso colored foam. Leaves a nice light swirl on top. Lacing is thin and somewhat slick. Big dark roasted coffee beans, with that acidic tone of sumatra. Light hints of chocolate. A slight touch of smoke, and a very slight note of licorice. Predominantly, just huge coffee-ness. As you’d expect from something called ’Java Stout’. The coffee is totally dominant here, also. But it’s not as overpowering as in the nose. It’s a much nicer balance of flavor. Some nice chocolate notes can be found. A touch of smoke. A very light hint of vanilla. Some roasted malts. This is a great full-bodied brew. Nice and thick. Very smooth, slightly sharp and a touch of creaminess. This is one great coffee stout. I don’t imagine that you could ask for more coffee flavor in a beer than this one. The smooth texture and balance of flavor make this easily drinkable, for me. Bell’s needs to expand their distribution, and to please make Oklahoma one of their stops.

Pous a dark rich creamy brown. Thick cream off white head. Laceing stick to the glass the whole way though the session. Strong chocolate aroma, but I also get alot of alcohol and pine. Not to much coffee but there is some present. The flavor is alot more mellow then the aroma present. Smooth creamy chocolate and acidity. Toffee and maybe just a hint of coffee. The palate is big and thick. Smooth and well balanced. Not really sure why it’s called a Java Stout, but it was tasty.

Steverus0 (227) - Shreveport, Louisiana, USA - NOV 30, 2014
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

#200! 12 oz bottle. Pours near-black with a thin tan head. Aroma is dominated by coffee, but roasted malt makes its presence known as well. Roasted malt and light chocolate in the front end of the flavor, but the finish is lingering, creamy coffee. Rich, satisfying mouth feel and low carbonation.

12 oz bottle. Love java, love Bells. Pours a dark black color with a small brown head that dies quickly. Smells of rich roasted coffee, and a lot of it. Tastes similar, with a nice almost creamy finish. Could have a little more body to it, but very good.

Full of flavor. Adequate coffee taste added with the roasted malt creates a terrificly delightful beer. Not for anyone who hates coffee, that is for sure.
