Poured aggressively from a can into a shaker pint. Thin, tan head fades quickly to a light film, reducing further to a just a hint of carbonation around the glass wall. No lacing sticks to the glass as the beer is drank. Beer is a rich, extremely dark brown color filtering out any light. Aroma is of strong hazelnut coffee with hints of chocolate and nut. Flavor profile is nicely balanced between coffee and roasted malt, with a bit of a dry hop finish. Thick and creamy mouthfeel. This is a coffee lovers beer!

12 oz can dated 11/14/16

It looks great. Big frothy light tan head on top of a jet black body. Decent looking viscosity. Retention is average, but it leaves a solid film with some spotty lacing.

Smells a little one dimensional. Lots of chocolate malt. A little bit of a metallic smell too. As it warms it starts to display some roasted/smoky/ashy aromas, but it doesn't scream coffee by any means.

A bitof a curve ball with the taste. A lot more coffee than I would have guessed. Especially when it is warmer and on the backside with a strong lingering bitterness. It is a very integrated flavor though. The chocolate malts are still the star here. A cocoa at best. Not a sweet chocolate. Reminds me of a Brooklyn Chocolate Stout a bit, which is a good thing. A significant amount of charred, ash tray like burnt flavor.

It has a very nice fullness and is a bit fluffy. Finishes very dry.

A very good, and tasty representation of an American Stout

Canned on 8/29/16. 12oz can poured into a tulip. Pours black with not much light getting through; fluffy khaki head that quickly falls leaving solid retention and nice lacing. There's some sediment floating around if you look hard enough. The aromas have lots of roasted malts with some subtle hints of cocoa. The coffee is subtle, but definitely there. The flavors are roasty with some hints of smoke. There's some dark chocolate along with some coffee which gives this one a decent bitterness. It's not sweet at all. There's also some hazelnut in the mix. Finishes dry for the most part. Alcohol goes unnoticed. Mouthfeel is light with moderate carbonation. It's smooth and easy to drink.

This is an okay brew. It's nothing crazy and it's not my new favorite coffee stout though. It's fine, but doesn't stand out in the world of coffee stouts, in my opinion.

Cola brown with a fizzy film of carbonation.

I smell roast coffee, sticky toffee, Werther's.

Taste is coffee, cola, and a little stale nut.

Feel is really frothy over a medium body finishing semi-dry.

Looks pitch black, small half finger off white head that recedes to a thin cap, fairlyrics high carbonation.
Smells strongly of dark chocolate, bitter coffee (maxwell house to me)
Taste directly follows the nose, mild sweetness up front, followed by an acrid lingering coffee bitterness.
Mouthfeel is creamy, and moderate.
Overall, a good example of the style, a no frills coffee stout that delivers exactly what it promises.

I bought a can of the Java Man Commeth from Andersons in Reynoldsburg, OH. It poured an opaque black with white head that is leaving a spotty lace. The scent is coffee. The taste coffee with sweet caramel malt base. The Mouthfeel is medium in body with smooth carbonation. Overall this is a solid beer and worth a try.

Big coffee flavor, a bit of sweetness, cocoa nibs & dark chocolate w/a mouthfeel like cold brewed coffee. Body closer to cola in feel than creamy but solid as hell nonetheless. Glad I took a flyer on the last sixer on hand @ Pace Hi when I was passing thru Cbus.
