A: Pours black with a large foamy dark brown head, even in a four ounce tasting glass.

S: Huge amounts of chocolate, coffee, and roasted malts, all balanced excellently.

T: Huge amounts of coffee in the flavor, with a good deal of chocolate and dark fruit malts being present too. Very, very enjoyable.

M: Medium-bodied, medium carbonation, and slightly sticky.

D: Amazingly drinkable; the fact that Java the Stout is both extremely well balanced and delicious makes for a beer with long-lasting enjoyability.

Pretty thick looking and very close to black, this could pass as either beer or cold-brewed coffee. The tan head is tight, about exactly one finger tall. It keeps itself together nicely and for the duration, leaving ample evidence of itself on the walls of the glass until the end.
Loads of coffee make the aroma, but it's no one-trick pony, so to speak. This stout has a big, robust malts base to put it on. It features notes of bittersweet baker's chocolate, and the coffee is as fresh as I've ever smelled in a beer like this.
It tastes more like fresh cold-brewed coffee than all except one coffee stout I've ever had. Roast from malts play with it so that it could easily be the coffee itself. Deep, rich cocoa notes come out without pushing. There's a certain creaminess in the flavor, too.
Carbonation is low but well-played, as no more is needed than what's given. The body is full and pretty rich. It's got crispness but the focus is appropriately aimed more toward smoothness.

A little thin for me but trust me, this is a good brew.
big coffee and dark chocolate upfront. Followed by malty flavor .
Very smooth and easy drink. Not a huge mouthful and a thin stout but by no means does this take away from the overall drink.
Another great beer from JackieOs.

Presentation: Poured from a growler into an Imperial pint glass. Listed on the chalkboard at the brewpub as a "coffee stout brewed with Dawn Chorus (roasted at Perks.)" Perks is a local coffee shop, just down the street.

Appearance: Pours with 1/2 finger of tan head. This settles to a ring around the glass. Some lacing. The beer itself is a deep, dark brown, nearly completely opaque, with some light seeping through the edges.

Smell: Strong, astringent coffee aroma. Hints of baker's cocoa and a slight note of lactose sweetness.

Taste: Mild roasted barley upfront. Chocolate notes are sweeter in taste than smell. A slight sourness in the finish.

Mouthfeel: Carbonation level is average. Impressive after a week in the growler. Body is good, kind of slick.

Drinkability: A good mix of the classic stout flavors I like so much: chocolate, coffee, and roastiness. Another hit from Jackie O's.

Pitch black pour with a slow head. The first pour from the growler yields very little, but the later pours have a nice brown fluff. Aromas are of milk chocolate and roasted malt. Flavor is very mellow with sweet chocolate, espresso, roast, and a very smooth creamy finish. The mouthfeel is rich and decadent, with a lingering coating of the palate. The coffee is present, but not too strong. Quite drinkable, and a good staple of the Jackie O's line-up.

Enjoyed from a growler in a pint glass, this wondrous coffee stout pours a thick black with a huge dark tan head that lasts a good while and great frothy lacing. Nose of rich black coffee and bittersweet bakers chocolate. Flavors of coffee are impressive all around with some bittersweet chocolate and smooth carbonation rounding it all together with sweet and roasted malts. Straight forward and delicious with a lightly bitter coffee/chocolate aftertaste. Another great brew from a great brewery.

Cheers!

If you don't like coffee don't order this stout but if you like fantastic coffee then this is your beer!!!! I have a son attending OU so I've enjoyed this beer for several years and this year's batch is perfection. My son is graduating this year and I'm going to miss Jackie O's.
