COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The satisfying elements of both stout and coffee come together in this full-bodied treat. A marriage of Sumatra's best with rich chocolate and roasted malt provides for a truly enlightening beer.

Super dark, near-black body and a mountainous, rocky, tan head. Silky, rich body. Perfect equilibrium between beer and coffee. No one taste seems to dominate the other. A nice roasted malt taste marries well with a light coffee flavor. A brief bitterness is left in the palate along a sustaining java presence. Very well crafted! (Side note: The label was a step up from Kalamazooís usual generic fare. This boosted the appearance from 4 to 5.)

I think someone put coffee in my beer, oh wait that was Larry Bell, and he put a lot of coffee in it. And I like it!

Wow, does this have caffeine in it? Huge rocky head that leaves Belgium lace all over the glass. Robust coffee aroma and taste. Just amazing. Possibly the perfect combination of coffee and stout flavorings.

The only beer that I can compare this to is Redhookís Double Black Stout, but the Java Stout blows Redhook away. The aroma remids me of coffe grounds and it had an intense coffee flavour, without being overly bitter. Another quality stout from Bells.

fraternie (1010) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 22, 2001
Incredibly rich coffee flavor, fairly spicy and hoppy. Large expandin head, which is not typical for this brewery...thick and flavorful. Might be a little too rich towards the end, but overall and enjoyable (and filling) brew.

Wow. This beer is wonderful. It certainly lives up to its name. Very strong coffee flavor, and aroma. Full bodied, good stuff.
