Java Stout uses a custom blend of coffee beans, roasted locally for us by Water Street Coffee Joint, to generate its intense flavor. Possessing an unmistakable aromatic punch, Java Stout has long been one of our most popular stouts.

This coffee stout holds a coffee like color with dark black hue and it's topped with a nicely thick, yet bubbly head.

The scent is all coffee and overly appropriate. The roast is a little soft but the coffee bean is ever present. Some of the malt comes through but I don't catch any other stout character.

The flavors are far more towards the roasted coffee character, so much so that it takes over. This is not like Averys Tweak but it is an overly appropriate and smooth version of the coffee stout.

The feel is rather dry, not astringent, but almost like a coffee without any additives. It has a neutral carbonation level and really moves through the palate easy.
