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

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.
