A: Poured with a mud-like brown color to my glass. Quickly topped with a rich frothy mocha-tan head, but that was gone before I knew it.
S: Cold and bitter coffee. Slightly metallic while cold. A hint of hazelnut.
T: Like a mocha from your local coffee shop. Sweet and bitter together. Smooth milk-chocolate flavors.
M: Creamy, but less viscous that the beer appears. I could see as I poured it that this one would present like most other stouts, but lacked something in body. This deficit is palatable, but doesn't ruin the beer.
D: True to its name, Java Stout brings together the best of coffee and beer in a classic way. I found this one to be a great example of the style and wish it was readily available. Another good beer from Bell's.

The first Bells I've had was the Expedition Stout. I must say, that stout opened my eyes to this brewery, and I haven't been let down since, though I will say, the Expedition is the best thus far.
Look: Very little light can pass through. I just shined a bright flashlight through the opposite side of the glass and it turns only slightly red. A very dark stout.
Smell: Coffee right away. I'm not very sophisticated, so I don't smell much else. Just coffee.
Taste: Coffee. Probably one of the most up front coffee type stouts I've had. There is no mistake this stout is brewed with coffee. You won't think "is this brewed with coffee?" There is no question about it. I'm a big coffee drinker so I am very drawn to coffee stouts.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied at best. Maybe a little thinner feeling.
Overall: This is a very good stout. I would most definitely drink this again. I may buy it again if I see it. But I likely won't be on the hunt for it.
