A little too effervescent for a stout, but perhaps this stout needs the extra carbonation to smoothen the deep, rich espresso character.
Nicely roasted malts and a deep brown sugar and coffee character round out a brilliantly balanced flavor.
Pleasant and drinkable, only the mouthfeel puts this brew off the top of its variety.

Draft sample at the Wigwam beer fest. Wow, this was nice and actually refreshing on a warm day. Like you took a well made sweet stout and mixed in a really high-grade coffee. Silky smooth mouthfeel. Very well made.

Can. Pours a very dark brown with a grayish brown head that dissipates slowly to the edges and remains. Aroma has a nice espresso note with a bit of roasted malts and a hint of underlying sweet chocolate. Flavor starts with coffee and roasted malts with more espresso in the finish and a bit of sweet chocolate.

Really tasty Java stout. Dark bitter coffee taste throughout. I drink it often and consider it Santa Feís best achievement.

A pretty decent coffee stout, with basically the usual trappings of the style, though lacking the pungent coffee nose I really love. Since Iíve been drinking Bells Java recently, this is kinda lacking.

On tap at Hops & Pie. Pour is pitch black with a medium tan head and great lacing. Big coffee, espresso, roasted malt, cocoa nibs, somewhat earthy, vanilla, light grass, and bready aroma. Taste is big roasted coffee, earthy, Sumatra, light caramel, brown sugar, toffee, a touch of green peppers - thought not overwhelming - chocolate, and grass with a light bitter finish. Sticky mouthfeel with low carbonation. Damn decent stout and my wife seemed to really like this one.

Pours black with a touch of ruby. Clean straight forward coffee aroma. Very nice coffee flavor followed by a dryness on the palate. Overall, very lovely. A strong assertive coffee flavored brew. Thanks to BarZigKin for his generosity...

Delicious Imperial coffee stout in a can? Now this is something I can get behind. Thanks, gregwilsonstl. Poured into a nonic pint glass, an opaque black colour, reddish at the edges when held to the light, with thick, creamy orange-ish beige foam, long-lasting with lace. Beautiful appearance. Aromas of coffee, burnt grains, bread, toast, fruity esters, not much hops, but thatís true-ti-style. Flavour was tart, fruity again, very slight sourness, very caramelly, less coffee than in the aroma, not terribly roasty, nicely balanced bittersweetness. Overall, quite creamy, smooth, rounded mouthfeel, medium body and carbonation, pleasant aftertaste. Great stuff, for sure.
