3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma of coffee, ash, dust. Appears an opaque black color with a small deep mahogany head that dissipates. Flavor is complex - sweet chocolate elements combine with a mocha tang, all finishing with an excellent fresh brewed coffee flavor. Palate is medium-thick and creamy, and it certainly helps enhance the coffee aftertaste. Overall, an interesting brew. My thanks to joeybgood for this fine sample.

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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

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.
