Aged for nearly 2 years, poured from their now retired bomber...

Appearance - Had sediment in this aged bottle, I incorporated this back into the beer and let it rest for a bit. Poured nearly 2 fingers of medium tan colored head, body is a completely opaque dark chocolate brown, a strong light will reveal a few deep maroon brown edges,

Smell - Rich soy sauce, molasses, liquid smoke, roasted malts, warm dark chocolate, rich dark roasted coffee

Taste - Very much like the nose, I get strong flavors of soy sauce, barely sweetened molasses, rich roasted malts with some liquid smoke, semi-sweet dark chocolate, also some dark fruits in the back, a very light sourness like plum skin, and then deep into the finish I get a small amount of very rich and full bodied black coffee.

Mouthfeel - Almost full, very smooth and nearly creamy, carb is very low and what is there feels very soft and smooth with an occasional edge way on the back of the tongue. The end result is that this is a sipper, and requires a good pause between sips - the flavors are so bold here that with out any cleanse/scrub from the carb you need to let the flavors finish after each sip - don't think I could chug this if I tried,

Overall - I'm enjoying this beer immensely, but I personally don't find this stout especially coffee forward. The coffee is there, but only asserts long after the sip. Not a complaint, as I love all of the other flavors, and they are very big and bold - crushing the coffee nuances until long into the finish. With that said, if I had to choose a member of the Blackwater Series to discontinue, I'd pick this one. NOT because it is a bad beer, it is excellent, extremely bold in flavor and complexity, but does not warrant the name Jahva. If you want a couple of great representatives of the Blackwater Series, look no further than Oat and Choklat. If you come across this one, you will not be disappointed, you just may not quite get the name, as I do/don't ;o)
