12 oz bottle. Pours black with tall, creamy, long lasting beige head and nice lacing. Aroma is of toasted malt, coffee, chocolate and herbal hops. Body is medium and smooth. Taste is of toasted malt, coffee, brown sugar, dark fruit and herbal hops. Finish is long and dry. Outstanding stout.

Fantastic damn beer. Deep brownish/black with a solid finger of tan head. Balanced coffee, cocoa nose with noticeable bitters as well. Excellent taste. Cheers. Balanced and roasty. Medium to heavy mouthfeel, with residual bitterness holding on. Nice example if a coffee stout. Proud of this PA brewski!

Looks great with a nice head. has a nice thick feel of a good quality stout however it was too bitter considering the coffee flavor and aroma was missing or just overpowered by the hops. I would never turn one down however it would not be a beer I will return to on my own accord.

For something called "Java head" I thought it was lacking coffee flavor.. It's a very good beer. Very smooth.

I get the taste of French pressed coffee. This is a good stout.
