On tap on home keg system. Kegged date N/A.
Appearance: Dark brown but not quite black. No head at all, kind of disappointing.
Smell: not really much of a coffee smell, more in line with chocolate malts.
Taste: chocolate taste up front and slightly sweet from oatmeal mash. Little thin for a stout, doesn't approach RIS status at all though that is not what they were going for here. Watery but flavorful and easy to drink. Bitterness with sweet but really lacking in the coffee department in my opinion. Not sure the name Java Head is a good descriptor of this beer.
Overall: really tasty and easy to drink a few with the ABV being 7.5. Really wish they would amp up the coffee.
Serving type: on-tap

A: Near black, nice frothy head after the pour. Leaves spotty lacing around my stout glass.
S: Bit of chocolate, coffee, sweetness.
T: Sweetness up front, then balanced by coffee at the end. A little bit of chocolate notes throughout.
M: Slightly on the thick side. Love how the bitterness of the coffee lingers on the back of the tongue.
O: Pretty pleasant beer, although I would probably only have one in a session. Maybe slightly above middle of the road for this beer in its category.

Having a beer for breakfast?, This is the one. If you like coffee and a kick ass beer, this will suit you just fine. Medium head when poured and dissipates rather fast. Flavor is bold and finishes with just the right amount of somewhat bitter coffee flavor. Taste remains in mouth for quite awhile...but....so does coffee. High alcohol content but well balanced!
