Let's see... I have oats, I've got coffee and I've got maple flavor. Who says beer isn't for breakfast?

Like many stouts, Java Head pours with an opaque dark brown hue and topped with a creamy light brown head. But amazing lacing is intricate and emboldened as it coats the glass with random patterns. Also, its yeasty sediments are a little overdone as their flakes settle to the bottom of the glass.

Bold roast coffee aromas are just shy of espresso, as the roasted barley, burnt caramel, and tangy malty twinge rise to greet the nose. The coffee scent is a standout, however the beer balances beautifully with supporting oatmeal and a berry-like tartness.

Its mid-intense taste is lead by coffee with the dark french roast-type of earthy and smoky character. Burnt grains, burnt marshmallows and roasted walnuts all come to mind as the coffee and malt intermingle. Before the beer dives into its bitter-burnt finish, that light tangy citrus and yogurt-like center is sweetish and bready. Its late fade includes a woodish burnt pine character.

Full bodied, but not absurdly so, the beer's silky oatmeal character gets a creamy lift from carbonation for a rich and smooth texture to balance out the roast bitterness and astringency. Warm and lightly spicy, the ale lingers with extended roast taste and texture.

Java Head hits the ground running with a bold and drinkable blend. Its rich and bright and gives a level of spunk to beer drinking.
