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.

On tap at the brewpub on our way back from the Midwest after Christmas.

Pours near black with a pretty good mocha-colored head and a bit of lacing on the way down. The nose is really nice with loads of coffee and freshly-ground espresso beans. A bit one dimensional, but it's done so well that I don't care at all. The taste is along the same lines, though there seems to be a bit of a creamy character there as well alongside some roasted bitterness. Other than that, java through and through. Nice mouthfeel with a bit of cream and a slightly-dry finish. One of the better coffee beers I've had in awhile.

black as night, dark oil like liquid. Huge tan head had a very very slow fade and left lots of lace all the way down the glass. Looked just like a stout should look....thick.

Smell was very robust, deep roasted coffee and dark german chocolate. Hints of a sugary or caramel sweetness as well. Taste was very thick and complex. Big deep roasted flavor, almost a burnt taste to it. Lots of flavors of coffee and german dark chocolate. Cery thick feel, but not syrupy, great carbonation led to a great silk like feel. Nice big hoppy finish left a very long lingering burnt aroma, I could literally taste it for 20 mins after the last sip, very outstanding full flavor. Overall this was awesome,

Not the first time I've had this, but it's great to see that Jackie O's has canned Java The Stout. 12 ounce can, canned on 11-05-16. Served in a nonic pint glass, the beer pours dark brown/black with about an inch and a half frothy tan head that stuck around a while. There's also a lot of lacing. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like coffee, bittersweet chocolate and roasted malt. Taste is similar to the aroma, but there's some caramel and nuts noticeable too. Lots of roasty coffee flavor in this stout! Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's creamy and slick, and it's also smooth and easy enough to drink. It also has a good amount of carbonation. It's one of the better coffee stouts I've had, and at 6.5% ABV it wouldn't be hard to finish a sixer of this. Definitely worth picking up! $10.99 a 6-pack.

Coffee black--a dark, muddy brown--with a large tan, creamy head and tons of Jackson Pollock lace.

Smell is milky coffee with a little baker's chocolate, light roasted malt and some astringent hops.

Tastes quite bitter for a fresh coffee stout, with light roasted malt, and piney hops that bring this too near Black IPA territory. A little milk chocolate, charred brown sugar, and vanilla comes up as it warms, creating a bit of a smoothing effect.

Pretty frothy and tangy.

On tap into a tulip...Black pour with a nice tan head, good retention and lacing...A wonderful aroma of espresso, creamy, coffee beans, a little bitter...The taste is espresso with a hint of chocolate. Really nice balance. One of their best beers for sure.
