I am doing a review on a beer I already reviewed to see it my taste buds have changed or if this time around is better or not.
A-Yes, still very beautiful as the first time: Pours a dark black color with a tan colored thick head that has great retention and lacing.
S-Still not impressed at all with the aroma, very dull aroma: The aroma is not very impressive at all. Just a little roasty chocolatiness. That's all really.
T-Well, this time around, I seem to get a bit more coffee flavor than noted, maybe it's a fresher bottle than my first review, it's a very nice smooth, light roasted "cold brewed" citrus coffee flavor, like a good Kenya or Ethiopian coffee: When I think of Java Head, I think this beer should be coffee foward, but it's not. I get more chocolate than coffee. The coffee is very subtle. (This time around, it's more of a good balance between chocolate and coffee, very nice indeed) [I raised the taste score up one notch.]
M-Indeed the mouthfeel is the same as noted: Very nice mouthfeel as it is very creamy and full bodied.
D-Think is a very drinkable beer, extremely smooth and creamy. Overall, I'm glad I tried this one again, I really enjoyed it:
I would suggest this to any coffee and beer loving individual.

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.
