The Java Stout pours textbook stout black with a modest tan head on top. The nose is sweet coffee and chocolate malts, very strong without being aggressively burnt roasty like many stouts.
The flavour is an interesting two part act: the first part is a delightful coffee infused stout: lightly roasted with strong bitter coffee aspects present. The back half is extremely sweet and sugary with a big vanilla cream flavour, and makes for a great send-off.
The mouthfeel on this is moderately thick, but not overly so, simply decent. The drinkability is exceptional though, a beer that I will be looking for actively whenever I visit the brewery.
The bottom line: I love coffee, and I love beer. I think most of the coffee brews that are put out end up unbalanced in some way, or unsatisfying. Kuhnhenn have put together my ideal java brew here. Strong coffee, but balanced. A unique sweet vanilla finish. Really great stuff.
Serving type: on-tap
