A pretty freakiní good beer. Pours a pitch black with a brown head resting atop. Lends good lacing all the way down the glass. Aroma is strong roasted coffee with a touch of yeast. Flavor is similar to a cappucino, starting with strong coffee, chocolate, and sweet malts. Then, thereís this nice dry section, with a grassy finish and a chocolate aftertaste. A real winner!

Aroma on this thing absolutely won me over, the most amazing coffee aroma on a beer i have ever found. Rich chocolate and coffee, mocha like nose. Taste was very bitter coffee with great mocha flavors that just really give this stout a unique edge. Great roasted flavors in this thick black brew, very smooth and well done imperial stout.

UPDATED: NOV 29, 2004 Mmm coffee, though I didnít taste as much as it sounds some others have. I for one found Java to be balanced- a great stout. Though this is twice now that Bellís stouts have given me the shits....

UPDATED: DEC 23, 2004 HOLY COFFEE! Aroma is coffee and choclate, very thick body, pitch black with a big dark brown head. Flavor is Coffee big time, with choclate, malt, and toffee hints. I love coffee and I love this beer!

Coffee grounds nose with chocolate. Thick head and syrupy dark color. Very esspresso like with some berry and carmel. Slightly bitter finish, incredible...

Nearly black with tan head and some lacing. The aroma is of old coffee, Italian pastries, mold, and cooked canned peas (seriously). Flavor is overhwelmingly old coffee, alcohol is prominant, metallic, tobacco burn, ash, smoke, bitter finish. Fairly full bodied, thick, soft carbonation. Rather one-dimensional. So I drink strong black coffee routinely, but this just doesnít work here. It gets a little better as you plough through the initial first sips. Thereís probably a good stout buried under that coffee madness.

poured dark brown with brown head arma duh coffee, flavor coffe, chocolate. I was a little hesitant about buying this becausse of the java because of past experiences I have had with things with coffee flavor in it but this was differant. the flavor of the coffee ws like the cuban blend that I like to drink strong bout not bitter a very good beer.

Dark Color. No Head. Coffee flavor very evident. For the Coffee Lovers out there...this is the beer to try.

This is a stout that combines two of my favorite things in the world: coffee & beer. Not just a little bit of coffee, a whole lot of it. You can smell it on the nose, but as soon as you taste it the flavor is intense. Its a deep black with a tiny head

I brought a six pack of Java Stout back from a recent trip to Cleveland. It has such a unique flavor I held off rating it unitl I sampled it a few times. Heavy coffee aroma, deep dark body, tan lacing, and subtle bitterness. Alcohol content is high for a stout that tastes a bit watered down at times. Iím unsure if this could be an everyday stout, but every Java Stout Iíve had has been a treat.
