Appearance The body is almost pitch black and hazy, if that makes any sense. The head is just right; moderate with a careful pour and darkly tanned. It even left some film as it slowly receded.
Smell Brewed with coffee, or coffee grounds? This is good stuff. The dark, roasted stout aroma has found its equal in the huge, coffee ground notes. What I find so appealing about this nose is that these are basically the only two smells that I can pick up. They dance the dance of lovers, thats for sure.
Taste Oh, man, if you love coffee and if you love stout, you will love this beer. Living in Seattle they sell coffee everywhere, and all the peddlers have their own interpretations of what they think is good. Well, this is good.
Starbucks should be so good. This is some of the best-tasting coffee Ive ever had, but of course that could be because it is equally mixed with some of the best stout that I ever had. Move over Reeses, this is the next great combination.
Mouthfeel Bigger than medium but not quite full, this is so smooth it makes me salivate. The mouthfeel is pleasant as can be.
What makes this a 5.0 Mouthfeel for me is the flavor blendings that create nirvana in between the cheeks. The huge bitterness of this Stout rounds things to perfection.
Drinkability Hath a more drinkable coffee-flavored stout been made? Me thinks not!
Comments One good Bells deserves another. Last night Kalamazoo, this night Java Stout. What a treat. A treat that was made possible by feloniousmonk, so I have to give him props for this killer trade.
