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.

This Stout was poured from a growler direct from the Brew Pub. It poured an Espresso Black with a thick Mocha head. The lacing was good. The smell of this Stout is of Coffee, Chocolate, and Brown Sugar.
If you have ever eaten any Chocolate covered Espresso beans, and loved them, this is your Stout. A great Espresso bite with a good balance of sweetness. The mouth-feel was surprisingly lighter than expected.
A great Stout for a February night in Ohio.

The others sum it up very well. This is my favorite beer--Jackie O's really nailed it with this coffee stout. Unfortunately, when I went to fill my growler, this nectar of the gods had been replaced by a chocolate stout. I sure hope they'll make more some day. For now though, if you're in the area, I think Casa Nueva, on the other side of Court St., has a keg or two left.

black as night, dark oil like liquid. Huge tan head had a very very slow fade and left lots of lace all the way down the glass. Looked just like a stout should look....thick.

Smell was very robust, deep roasted coffee and dark german chocolate. Hints of a sugary or caramel sweetness as well. Taste was very thick and complex. Big deep roasted flavor, almost a burnt taste to it. Lots of flavors of coffee and german dark chocolate. Cery thick feel, but not syrupy, great carbonation led to a great silk like feel. Nice big hoppy finish left a very long lingering burnt aroma, I could literally taste it for 20 mins after the last sip, very outstanding full flavor. Overall this was awesome,

Thanks to brewslut for sharing a growler on 12/26/10.

A - How do you like your coffee (stout), sir? Black. This one is none more black with a creamy burnt tan head that reduced to a wispy patch and spotty lace.

S - Freshly ground medium to dark roasted coffee with a hint of chocolate. Simple. Breakfast of champions!

T - Java the Stout packs an amazingly authentic coffee flavor with a roasted malt character and hint of chocolate thrown in for good measure, making this a perfect wake and bake morning treat OR a delectable dessert drink. Finishes with a hint of earthy hop bitterness.

M - Medium bodied with a smooth, creamy texture and sweet finish, but with a tinge of earthy hops and coffee bitterness.

D - Bam! Awesome, poundable coffee stout right here. Donkey would be proud!

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.
