bottle sample at Dark Lord Day - Pours black with a tan head. The aroma, you guessed it, coffee! The flavor is... coffee! This beer is like a cup of coffee with a hops finish. Itís good coffee. I think it could use a little more balance though.

This brew, like most all of the Bells products, is definetely tasty; Nice dark, oily look and feel, good chocolate and coffee mix, but I found the coffee to be overpowering. I suppose thatís what a Java Stout should be though.

A roasty aroma with notes of chocolate, and coffee. Taste definitely reminds me of an espresso shot. A delicious beer readily available 3 miles from my house. I am buying a bike.

Dark brown, with a tan head. Aroma is coffee, and more coffee. Flavor is soffee, chocolate, hops, and fruit. Pretty good, but a little too coffee dominated.

12-oz bottle via trade with Kevin. Batch 7221. Pours opaque, jet black with a small tan head, fades to patchy film. Aroma is fresh coffee grounds, dark and rich chocolate, yeast (leather) and malt (burnt toast). Medium bitterness, moderate acidity, dark heavily roasted coffee, dark bitter chocolate, coffee flavor lingers a while. Dark bodied and fizzy palate.

UPDATED: NOV 27, 2007 bottle. Black, black stuff with a very dark, thick head. The nose has ridiculous amount of coffee in it. I probably couldnít differentiate between this and an iced coffee based on smell alone. Tons of coffee in the flavor also. I suppose there is some detectable malt characteristic which gives this a slightly sweeter side. Basically, this comes down to the question, how much does the drinker like coffee? Well, I love coffee. Especially bold and earthy such as is served up here. ------- 26,2007] Bells Java Stout is one of the most coffee-like beers Iíve ever had. I still stand by that. Coffee is way up front, but many of the complexities are infused into the brew as well. Some creamy malts provide tasty balance, but this is all about drinking a nice cold cup of joe. This is a very well done rendition of the style.

UPDATED: JUN 25, 2006 Another awesome Bells brew... pours thick and black with a thin tan lacy head. smells strongly of coffee beans, vanilla and soap. flavor is surprisingly light, with hops, espresso... ending with dark chocolate and almonds. yum!
