This is the kind of beer that gives the word "stout" a reputation. Extra generous quantities of barley malt, followed by vigorous fermentation leaves this "imperial" heavy weight with 8% alcohol A.B.V. and a body as full as chocolate bread pudding. A complimentary and complex array of bitter notes comes form potent American hops, earthy British hops, black-roasted malts and, of course, coffee. Santa Fe Brewing Company uses only top-quality ingredients like organically grown East Timor coffee beans blended with New Guinea coffee beans, locally roasted by O’hori’s Coffee House. Its heavenly flavor and aroma can’t be beat or imitated.

Can. Pours truly opaque; no light through it at all. Head is creamy cinnamon with fine grain and lace. Nose is espresso, pumpernickel, dark chocolate, and mint. Strong coffee punch on the front of the mouth, opening up to a complex mocha depth; finishes clean and long with herbal-laced roast notes. Really, really good.

Nice roasted coffee nose. Milk chocolate, espresso beans, earthy hops, moderate roasted malts. Medium sweet finish, euro hops, mild coffee lingers.

Silphium (3192) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JUN 30, 2013
Can via trade with brokephibroke. Deep garnet brown body, thick puffy beige head. Ashy roasted coffee bean nose. Strong coffee bean body, tannic and toasty with light sweetness and modest lingering coffee bean. Somewhat simplistic but OK.

Can! Aroma is dry, dark, and sweet. Appearance is a very dark brown with a bit of tan head. The taste starts out dry and dark then rolls into a dark malt/ coffee flavor. Has a bit of a bitter from the java. Palate is dark and dry. Overall, a interesting beer that is good. No tin taste. Would buy again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz can in a snifter. Pours black with a lacy, tan head. Aroma of coffee, a little chocolate, a good amount of roasted malts, some dough, and a light bitterness. Flavor the same with a nice blend of everything. Average to smooth texture. A decent beer.

Bottle; Poured dark brown with a creamy tan head. Aroma: Smells somewhat like cleaning supplies/coffee/ Malt. Flavor: Not very fond of the flavor. Does have an espresso/roast feel. A bit too much like coffee grinds.

Just a great stout. Very smooth! Exactly what you want out of a Java Stout. Coffee flavor is just right and not over bearing. Just damn good!!! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Now that’s a good cup o’ joe, uhh beer. Serious nose on this one fits the bill for Java heads with the flavor to please most beer geeks. Very few so-called coffee stouts belong at the breakfast table, this is one of them.
