Beer Review: Bell's Java Stout

Reviewing the Java Stout from Bell's Brewery.
Score: 90

2011 bottle served in snifter

Appearance: Darkest of browns, no light can cut through this beer. Small tan head on pour, that dissipates a minutes later. 4/5

Smell: Black coffee, espresso and milk chocolate. 4/5

Taste: Tastes like roasted black coffee with hints of creamy milk chocolate. Delicious coffee breath finish. 4/5

Mouthfeel: Creamy medium body with very low carbonation. Finishes bitter. 4/5

Overall: This is a delicious coffee-forward stout that is incredibly drinkable. I do not particularly like coffee, but enjoyed this brew.

Recommendation: Fans of coffee flavors will love this one, whether they are a casual beer drinker or a beer geek.

Pairings: Almond biscotti or oatmeal cookies.

Cost: $15.99 for a six pack.
