Look: Black with a medium-tank head, opaque, soft, medium-small bubbles that linger
Smell: Dark, roasted grain/bean smell, some chocolate but not overbearing, more coffee than anything. A bit sweet. Really have to stick my nose in the glass to get anything.
Taste: Sweet, not as bitter as the smell, more like a soft coffee than anything. No hopiness or anything of that nature. I would actually expect more bitterness.
Feel: Medium heavy body but slick, not sticky or syrupy, nothing notable from the carbonation since it's so soft.
Overall: Not bad. Not mind blowing either.

Java The Stout | Jackie O's Pub & Brewery. Poured from the can into a snifter, this has a two finger thick tan head, with solid lacing, and a solid black as space body.

I smell a mix of the coffee and malts with a dash of chocolate.

I taste semi-sweet and milk chocolate notes making this more of a mocha flavor. The malt characters bring it back to earth (no pun intended).

Slightly heavier mouthfeel with mild carbonation.

I'll rate Java The Stout | Jackie O's Pub & Brewery with a 4.5

Black, frothy cushion on top that settles into a persistent foam. Aroma is reminiscent of a dry stout - light roasted malt and a little milk chocolate - though the coffee is very faint if there at all. It is there on the palate, and i think, very well balanced and folded in with the other flavors. Not a coffee "bomb" as the parlance goes. Lots of creamy milk chocolate, dry roasted malt, and the coffee flavor delicately dancing throughout. Leaves you wanting more, perhaps, but in a good way I think. Mouthfeel is smooth, a tad frothy.

Coffee stout brewed with locally roasted coffee beans. Poured from a can into a Bruery tulip. The pour is very dark, not quite black, and a faint trace of light sneaks through. It produces two fingers of light tan head with good retention and nice lacing. On the nose I get light roasted malt, coffee beans, and a hint of cedar.

Medium body with a firm feel and a nice coffee flavor. The beer opens up with a healthy dose of roasted malt and toffee, then the coffee crashes on and ratchets up the bitterness. A small amount of hoppiness comes through near the back of the palate and takes the bitterness just a bit higher. Still, there is enough malt to balance it out and, as coffee stouts go, this one is far from the bitterest, harshest one I've had. I'm not sure hops are even all that necessary in a beer like this, but the coffee still manages to carry a little richness in its flavor, though not nearly as much richness as the ``top-shelf'' coffee stouts one encounters here and there. I enjoyed this, but it's hard to justify buying it again when Founders Breakfast Stout is also sitting on the shelves.

I reviewed this after the first one I had out of my six pack. Now with one left, it's seriously a beer that gets so much better every time you have one. The flavors become so much more obvious and vivid after every one. I've only fairly recently gotten into stouts but honestly this makes me want more and more.

Big rich coffee aroma to start this one off, it pours an opaque black with a thick tan head. The flavor starts off full of roasted notes which fades into a bright coffee flavor. This fades off into a rich coffee and roast finish. The body is a bit thin, but overall if you like coffee stouts, this is one you should try.

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
