TOSG55 (223) - Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 28, 2013
Bottle. Pours black with a light tan head. A lot of coffee and roast malts on the aroma, though not overpowering. The flavor is also coffee driven - indeed, Iíd say itís closer to an iced coffee than a beer. But itís not unbalanced, and there are a lot of nice chocolate and roasted malt notes. A bit more coffee-heavy than Iíd prefer, but a very nice example of the style. It reminds me of a slightly less intense Speedway Stout - a lot of similar character.

Barreras (1601) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - NOV 20, 2016
Pours a dark brown color with a roasted malt aroma. Taste is truly coffee, distinctly espresso, with a nice stoutly beer flavor. The alcohol content is well hidden in the overall flavor of the beer. Good chocolate with minor bitterness in the aftertaste.

Bellís Java Stout smells, tastes, and even looks like a glass of fresh-brewed Sumatra. If you love the bold, roasty, bitter, and (dark) chocolaty characteristics from this Indonesian variety, youíll probably love this Stout. Java Stout has notes of all that with some char and probably even a fair amount of caffeine. Maybe Iíll have one with breakfast.

HuskerTan (1802) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - NOV 6, 2016
Draft. A- Roasty, bitter, coffee. A- Black color, black liquid, tan head. T- Coffee, vegetal, bitter. P- Full body, average texture, average carbonation, bitter finish. O- Too much of the earthy vegetal coffee and not enough sweetness for me. I thought maybe a dirty tap line was the reason for this but I think it just isnít ass rich as I hoped.

rosenbergh (10895) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 30, 2016
12 oz bottle. Bottled on 10/16/15. (Bellís) Kalamazoo, MI.
Black color with a small tan head. Roasted malt, coffee and some sweetness in the aroma. Coffee is really strong. Bit of a problem for me. The flavor is even stronger... I canít get much more than coffee... roasted malt and some sweetness. Rich.
