Ratman197 (9808) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JAN 7, 2007
Bomber poured a clear dark reddish brown[almost black] with a small diminishing brown head. Aromas of dark chocolate, coffee, light smoke and a hint of vanilla. Palate was light to medium bodied. Flavors of coffee, dark chocolate, light smoke and charcoal with a lingering bitter finish.

Chocolate Coffee Flavor. Nice color. Love the 22 oz. bottle and the story on the label. Very nice with a good piece of dark chocolate

Bottle. Chocolate/coffee malt aroma with a hint of burnt wood. Dark brown with moderate head. Chocolate fudge and coffee flavor with moderate hops finish. Nice thick flavor - made me smack my lips with every sip. Greatly enjoyable beer.

Well, its not Bells Java Sout, then again, not much comes close. Solid offering, but the coffee seemed artifiical like. Seemed filtered as well.

JAF737300 (1291) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 2, 2007
This is an excellent example of doing it great but differently. Nice hints of coffee make this stout/ale a real winner. Get it if you can.

Metalhead (628) - Lake Zurich, Illinois, USA - JAN 1, 2007
This was nothing super special or out there but was so smooth and tasty it was almost amazing. It was like mild coffee mixed with Herseys chocolate. ABV was not even there. Smooth and very drinkable with no bitterness or harshness.Semi velvety mouthfeel. I wish this was available in a $10 sixer instead of a $5.50 bomber. It would be a mainstay for me.

erway (1004) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - JAN 1, 2007
Pours dark with lots of hints of red abd a dissipating head. Why the hell you would filter such a beer is beyond me but oh well. The aroma is completly milky chocolate. Not much else. Body is med. with oodles of CO2. Flavors are really rounded with notes of mint chocolate, floral hops, and chocolate. Finish is bitter and drying. I donít get coffee but thatís me.

HighGravity (926) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JAN 1, 2007
My pour produced a picturesque head and lace that is a thing of beauty. The nose is subtle, with a hint of coffee and caramel. The palate is full and rich with a nice blend of hops, coffee, and malt. The finish is very chocolaty and long. Overall, this nice coffee stout gives you both booze and caffeine to get you going.

JFURYCAT (1079) - East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 31, 2006
This has a nice malty bitter chocalate feel but ends on a watery note. I would love to try the coffee portion without the malts and alcohol thrown in. Granted the malts provide a nice caramel flavor. The pour isnít especially dark or heavy but the flavor is pretty balanced out.
