Bell's Java Stout

Bell's Brewery is in Comstock, Michigan. This is their 7.5% ABV coffee stout brewed with fresh roasted coffee beans. 

The beer pours absolutely black with a quarter inch of brown foamy head.  The aroma is massive coffee, it is like smelling a fresh iced coffee at a coffee house that freshly roasts, grinds and brews all their coffee drinks.  There is both a hint of sweetness and a bit of tartness around the edges of the aroma.  The taste is creamy, coffee, coffee and more delicious fresh roasted coffee taste, with a slight bitterness on the finish (the bitterness being more a stout beer bitterness than coffee bitterness).  This beer is amazing.  If you like coffee you will love this beer.  It has the  most delicious creamy mouth feel as well.  What a stunner, this blows any other coffee stout I have ever had way out of the water.
