Pint on tap. Opaque black with a cream on top. Nose is vanilla and chocolate with a touch of sour cream. Taste is the same with some light coffee and green herb. Medium bodied with a medium carbonation. Sweet start but a nice roasty finish mostly brings it back to balance.

On tap at Tapwerks. Pours near black with a brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a nice combination of sweet chocolate, dark grains and a real nice coffee note. Flavor is similar with the sweet chocolate and dark grains up front that are cut nicely with a great coffee note. Nice and smooth.

(Draught) Pours a black body with a small tan head. Aroma of lactose, chocolate, coffee, and caramel. Flavor of chocolate, lactose, caramel, roasted malt, coffee, and grass with a dry finish.

7/26/2013: Left Hand Java Lava - Well, this one looks, smells, and tastes like coffee. Okay, there is a bit of dark chocolate and some roasted malt here and there, but it’s mostly just cold coffee. I like coffee well enough, but it’s fairly dominating and I get a bit of old, stale coffee from time to time. I guess that’s how it goes with coffee stouts... Overall, this is a pretty decent beer, but I’d like a bit more of the underlying beer showing through the coffee.

Draught (sample) at Party Town in Florence, KY. Rating #19 for this beer.

BrewDad (5667) - Olympia, Washington, USA - JUN 19, 2013
Dark black in color thin tan head. Super flavors and rich dark coffee and chocolate lingering. Super stout.

notalush (5983) - Lakewood, Colorado, USA - MAR 2, 2013
Tap at Rackhouse - dark brown pour - looks like cola - fizzy body, but zero head - nose is coffee heavy, but with a lot of sweetness surrounding it - smells of cream, sugar, I swear I even smell brown sugar and maple - fizzy in the mouth - some nice coffee notes, but the overall flavor is very sweet and sugary - kind of tastes like Cuban coffee - try that stuff sometime - they give you a tiny cup and black coffee that must have about 100 teaspoons of sugar in it - when done right, it can be tasty - this beer doesn’t taste like one done right - far too sweet, so the rich flavor of the coffee is swallowed up - meh.

maley1 (1301) - Calgary, CANADA - FEB 13, 2013
Dark black pour with large fluffy tan head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate and cocoa. Taste of huge coffee, chocolate, caramel. Higher carbonation giving it a crisp mouthfeel although creamy and slightly sweet, very good stout.

onceblind (11100) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 22, 2013
Deep black with a thin khaki head. Roasty nose of toasted chocolate malts, a touch of caramel and toast. Sweet and creamy flavor with chocolate, truffle creme, and a gentle cafe-con-leche tone. Delightful, if a bit simplistic.

faroeviking (11389) - Chupando chellas es como ellas, FAROE ISLANDS - JAN 21, 2013
Botella. Black colour. Aroma: sweet, roasty malt, chocolate. Good mouthfeel. Sweet roasty maltiness with chocolate in the flavour. Soft. Pleasant.

Pinball (12642) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 14, 2013
