COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is the kind of beer that gives the word "stout" a reputation. Extra generous quantities of barley malt, followed by vigorous fermentation leaves this "imperial" heavy weight with 8% alcohol A.B.V. and a body as full as chocolate bread pudding. A complimentary and complex array of bitter notes comes form potent American hops, earthy British hops, black-roasted malts and, of course, coffee. Santa Fe Brewing Company uses only top-quality ingredients like organically grown East Timor coffee beans blended with New Guinea coffee beans, locally roasted by O’hori’s Coffee House. Its heavenly flavor and aroma can’t be beat or imitated.

A black beer with a ridiculously large tan head. Seriously, it is way over-carbonated about two inches of beer to six inches of head on a gentle pour. The aroma is coffee, chocolate, oat, and lactose. The flavor is coffee, lactose, and a bit of anise as well, but inferior to the aroma.

(12oz can) clear, deep espresso brown color, creamy dark tan head. Nose of fresh coffee, cream, oats, rich, sweet chocolate, decadent. Taste of cold pressed coffee, light acidity, creamy, medium dark chocolate, raisins. Medium body, acidic finish.

Coffee, dark chocolate, vanilla, roasted malts, and caramel in the aroma. It is delicious. The taste is a bit underwhelming, as it doesn’t deliver all the promises the nose makes. It is correctly bitter and not as sweet or strong in coffee favors as I had expected. The palate is more medium than thick and carbonation is adequate. If only everything else were as good as the aroma...

Can. Pours a deep, rich mahogany with a nose of freshly used coffee grounds and light chocolate. Flavor is metallic coffee with a hint of caramel in the finish. Average mouthfeel. FUCK YOU, TYLER DELANE. YOU BETTER FUCKING HOPE I NEVER FUCKING RUN INTO YOU AGAIN, YOU COCK-SMOKING SHITFUCKER.

12 oz can shared by Dean via trade. Poured a good looking thick body pitch black with an average sized foamy beige head. Aroma is great, notes of black coffee, lactose, dark toast. Thicker bodied with with medium to fuller mouthfeel if that makes sense, softer carbonation and a dry finish. Flavor started off with a quick hint of metal that faded rapidly, lots of coffee with a touch cream and even some marshmellow, dark toast. This is good stuff.

Can, big thanks to Trukpro for this via trade. First off the can is awesome, love the "before noon/after noon" on it. Now to the beer...pours a dark brown color with a small tan head. Aroma is of lots of coffee, light chocolate, some roast and light hop notes in there. Flavor is a great balance, with a nice quality coffee taste of medium roast, chocolate, and a light finish of some hops and roast. Solid brew with a dangerously well hidden ABV. Props!

I found this beer to have a nice caramel and creamy taste but yet stays strong to it’s coffee and chocolate like blend. Very much so enjoyed this Java Stout.

12oz can pours very dark brown with full dark tan head leaving behind some lacing. The aroma offers up malt balls and dark roasted coffee as well as a mild level of earthy chocolate. The taste begins with some dark roasted malts and dark roasted coffee and then it quickly sweetens up with malts, a bit of chocolate and malt balls. To midway and into the finish those notes are briefly interrupted by a dash of black licorice. Pretty nice stuff.
