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.

Bottle. Poured straight black with a nice tan head. Coffee flavor is strong and right out front, followed by a more traditional stout flavor with some chocolate. Great roasted malt flavor to balance everything out.

Nice black pour with a light brown head. Heavy coffee aroma upfront. Tastes of coffee, bitter chocolate and roasted malt. Lots of flavor here. Nice thick texture. Really good beer from Bell, ’s.

Old rating. Awesome coffee forward beer. Pretty much espresso/coffee flavor all the way through. Maybe a little oak and chocolate too. Not too heavy. Real tasty.

mbgrayson (599) - Anaconda, Montana, USA - APR 18, 2015
Pours very dark brown, with a tan head. Aroma of rich dark coffee. Taste is similarly heavy with good coffee. A very good, uniquely coffee-oriented brew. Thumbs up!

geologyguy (895) - Columbia, South Carolina, USA - APR 11, 2015
Very dark coffee smell, very dark, heavy and strong coffee but fairly smooth, finishes with coffee grounds but not in a bad way, coffee is all you taste though, one dimensional...

Jabah (145) - Winter Park, Florida, USA - APR 10, 2015
A unique beer, as you’ll see a lot of "coffee" beers that you barely taste the coffee. This java stout tastes exactly as it sounds. Was a little on the strong side (alcohol content) for it’s flavor, but I’m certain that’s what they were shooting for. Relatively heavy for a stout, with a bitter aftertaste.

A little woody. A little thin with a hint of burnt coffee. Not bad. Solid take on the style

Pours a solid black with a tan head. It has a nice coffee aroma with some toasted malt and a bit of coffee. The flavor is rich coffee and toast with a bit of chocolate and a smooth, slightly dark chocolate finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Zymurgeist2 (1203) - Redwood City, California, USA - MAR 20, 2015
Overt coffee and rich malt. Pours black with a massive brown head that lingers well. Roast and coffee dominate flavor with a slight fruitiness (dark fruits) on the end. Moderate bittering, could be a little from the roast. A very slight sourness appears in this beer, which is nice. Coffee is a little overpowering.

Obfuscate (228) - Minneapolis, - MAR 15, 2015
Jet black with a khaki head. Smells of coffee, anise, dark roasted malt. Huge coffee taste. Fairly creamy not getting the chocolate of most stouts and way more coffee. If you like coffee beers this is a good one to try.

Niall73 (2152) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 9, 2015
Bottle at home while in Jacksonville. Pours dark brown/black with a red edge and a tan head. Nice aroma with milk choc, light grass, light vanilla and sweet milky coffee. Medium to full body, medium carbonation. There’s woody toasty ash, milk and bitter dark choc, slightly stale coffee, hint of mustiness, vanilla, light hazelnut... Creamy, smooth, lovely balance and very tasty.
