The coffee is strong with Java the Stout. It is a stellar stout. I got this coffee stout in a trade and I think I did well. It is very good.

Look: black with a one-inch white head.

Aroma: roasted malts and coffee

Taste: It is very nicely put together with a prominent coffee flavor, toasted malts, a little bit of chocolate, and no alcohol taste.

Feel: a bit fizzy first then medium creamy

Poured from a can dated 11/07/16 provided by the generous BA Oach.

The beer pours a deep black with a short tan head the leaves a small amount of lacing.

The smell is mostly roasted malts up front with some coffee underneath. The smell is very light and typical of a low-abv stout.

The taste follows the nose with a nice light roasted malt character. The coffee comes through in the end and gets strong on the aftertaste.

The mouthfeel is a little thin but smooth without too much carbonation.

Overall this is a nice, easy to drink low-abv stout that packs more flavor than most similar stouts.

12 FL OZ can
Served in a Jackie O's snifter

This beer pours black and is topped with three inches of mocha head that leaves some nice lacing.

There are aromas of coffee and roasted malt.

It starts out with a nice dose of coffee. Through the middle and into the finish I taste roasted malt. It tastes almost burnt in the finish.

It is a solid coffee stout. It does not distinguish itself above other stouts but is worth a try.

Pours black with a finger and a half of creme colored head foaming to the top. Head retention is good, with a few dots of lacing left behind. Aroma mingles a tinge of coffee with toasted and biscuit malts. Flavor profile is a lot of light-bodied malts - roasted, toasted, and biscuit. The beer finishes with a tinge of coffee. Mouth feel is a little fizzy at the start, but develops a creamy feel as it warms. Thickness hangs right in the middle of the spectrum. Overall, a rather standard coffee stout. Not a huge presence, but that makes it a little easier to enjoy a few in a setting.

Served in a 12oz snifter.

12 ounce can into pint glass, canned on 11/4/2016. Pours nearly opaque dark brown/black color with a 2 finger dense and fluffy khaki head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice dense soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of big milk/dark chocolate, cocoa, nutty coffee, caramel, toffee, vanilla, cream, toasted dark bread, light smoke/char/dark fruit, herbal, light pepper, and roast/toasted earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of dark/roast/bready malt, coffee, and light-moderate earthy hop notes; with great strength. Taste of big milk/dark chocolate, cocoa, nutty coffee, caramel, toffee, vanilla, cream, toasted dark bread, light smoke/char/dark fruit, herbal, light pepper, and roast/toasted earthiness. Light-moderate herbal/spicy hop and roast/char bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of milk/dark chocolate, cocoa, nutty coffee, caramel, toffee, vanilla, cream, toasted dark bread, smoke, char, herbal, light pepper, and roast/toasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Fantastic complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malt, coffee, and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; with a great roast/hop bitter/sweet balance, and zero astringent hop/roast flavors after the finish. Light-moderate dryness from hop/roast bitterness, increasing through the glass. Medium carbonation and medium-plus body; with a very smooth, creamy/bready/silky, and fairly sticky/chalky balanced mouthfeel that is awesome. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 6.5%. Overall this is a fantastic American style coffee stout! All around awesome complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malt, coffee, and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; very smooth and easy to drink. Amazing malt complexity and nutty/fruity coffee presence; with balancing hop character. A highly enjoyable offering.
