Aroma is a fairly aggressive mix of roasted and burnt malts with perhaps just a hint of coffee. But for a coffee stout, definitely not too heavy on the coffee. More like a dry stout.

Taste has quite a roasted malt character to it, a bit burnt perhaps with a small bitterness on the finish. Coffee is very light. Most coffee stouts that I've had pack way more of a coffee punch than this. As it is, it comes across more like an ordinary stout to me. Those aren't really my favorite style so that's a letdown to me.

Bottled on 1/15/13. Poured into a pint glass.

A - Pours slightly viscous black and opaque with a one-finger rocky brown/khaki head. Nice lacing.

A - Coffee is predominant. Slight sweetness. Could not pick-up the citrus notes the brewer calls out on the label.

T - Coffee, some burnt bitterness and some hop bitterness upfront, in the middle and in the finish.

MF - Astringent, sharp, not smooth like a typical oatmeal stout.

O - Not sure I would classify this as an oatmeal stout as it is missing some of the sweetness and all of the smoothness expected from the style. I guess the whole flower hops really alter the typical taste profile. The burnt bitterness and the hoppy bitterness do not work for me.

Bought a #3 Troegs Anthology Sampler Case with Java Head in it. Poured into a Corsendonk Tulip Glass.
A--Appears an opaque deep brown color with over an inch of dense, creamy dark foam.
S--Freshly roasted coffee beans, molasses,
T--Coffee, the molasses, hops, bittersweet chocolate, nice roastiness, some dark bread notes and a sweet citrus. The more I think about it, it tastes like a melted dark chocolate orange (that are around for the holidays) over oatmeal with a coffee chaser--Delicious!
M--the stout has just about a nice medium body and is amply carbonated.

My brother has been raving about this one for some time and I am very surprised about how good this stout is. I guess I should listen to my brother more (at least about beer). Another great beer from Troegs!
