Pours a dark black. Smell is heavy on the alcohol and coffee beans. This is a very creamy beer. Mouthfeel is very thick. Taste is also heavy on the coffee beans. Alcohol hidden well. Not as much flavor as I was hoping for. Dodgrblu (756) - Sacramento, California, USA - NOV 1, 2013
22 ounce bottle from Timfoolery, newsflash stout smells like chocolate and coffee. Sweet.

9/1/2010. From bottle. pours black with a beige head. Coffee aromas with dark roasted malt, chocolate, dried fruit, spice. Coffee flavors blended with bitter hops and a nice alcohol burn on the finish. Good stuff! HisBoyElroy (107) - Michigan, USA - OCT 14, 2013
UPDATED: OCT 18, 2013 Not bad, but way too sweet. Could only drink a single glass of this beer. Thanks Tony. tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - OCT 14, 2013
UPDATED: APR 10, 2014 Bottle: Super black pour, creamy khaki head that settles quickly to a chunky collar. Aroma is roasted coffee beans, mild ash, some brown sugar, & some extra residual sweetness. Taste is pretty sweet up front; lots of milky sweetness, cream, smooth chocolate notes. Coffee actually kind of takes a back seat, but it’s present mid-palate. Timid coffee beans, still with lots of creamy sweetness underneath. Finish of mostly sweet brown sugar. Overall, it has decent flavor, but is suffers a little from the old "Southern Tier sweetness" syndrome.

Yet another quality ST brew. This one is true to its name. Smells like coffee. Tastes like coffee. Coffee lingers. Bordering on a simpleton -- not much going on with the base stout -- this is nevertheless quite good. B+/A-

UPDATED: NOV 13, 2013 Pours jet black with very little tan head. Nice mocha aroma some yeast, alcohol. Chocolate taste upfront followed by roast coffee flavor. a little chalky . Creamy mouthfeel with slight carbonation. Will drink again. One2remeber (253) - Bucktown, Ohio, USA - SEP 12, 2013
Full frontal coffee beans, dark roast, fruity, peanut butter beans.
CO2 and beans add bitterness, malts subdued. Lighter body given intense flavors. Not syrupy, dry finish. Bit of unfermentables, banana yeast.
Well put together. Lets the coffee shine.

Bottle from MGM Eagan, Great chocolate and coffee roast aroma, taste is very similar, like a choc covered coffee bean. TimsRatings (421) - - AUG 7, 2013
On tap at Ridgewood (Raleigh).
Pours dark as a dark and stormy night. Coffee and malt dominate the aroma, ditto for the taste. Just what would be expected from a beer called "Jah-va". These flavors meld nicely with this beer.
