4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle courtesy of Dak. Thanks again for the extensive Bells stout hookup! Deep brown, almost black pour, with a 1 finger, nut brown, head. Strong nose of roasted coffee, unsweetened chocolate, and wood. Smooth mouthfeel with the definite dryness of coffee. It is pretty dominating at first but the roasted malts and chocolaty notes come out as the beer warms a little. Itís almost a little too drinkable. I could see putting a few of these down in one sitting.

Smells like chocolate and coffee. Low to medium carbonation. Very lightly foamy and creamy mouthfeel. Thick and syrupy. Taste is dark chocolate and roasted black coffee. The most prominent flavor is the coffee, and boy is it strong. Aftertaste is long length and the same, with a bit of alcohol warmness and bitterness (unfortunately).

6 ounce sample from a 12 ounce bottle. Aroma has some mocha coffee hints present. A bit charry and metallic. Pretty nice. Mostly opaque black body with a medium light tan head. Super coffee like flavor in the start. Medium roast in the middle. Mediocre sweetness. Good stuff.

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.

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!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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...

A unique beer, as youíll 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 itís flavor, but Iím certain thatís 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
