COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Depth, complexity and richness occur when delicious ale ages in a barrel, just as friendship grows over the years. This stout was created in collaboration with our friends from Philadelphia’s Standard Tap and Johnny Brenda’s restaurants. Using their delicious hand-roasted JB’s Coffee, our bourbon barrels deliver a bold and robust, chocolate malt-tinged stout. We invite you to toast the Victory of friendship and beer with Java Cask!

sinfull (1904) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - APR 11, 2018
UPDATED: APR 11, 2018 Black, with medium-sized, beige head. Aroma of coffee, roasted malt, wood, and bourbon. Moderate sweetness in the balanced taste. Surprisingly far from being sweet. Bourbon and coffee flavors dominate.

zoucrew102 (2421) - - APR 7, 2018
Bottle, 2017 vintage. Coffee aroma with notes of roasted malt, chocolate, vanilla, oak and a bit of booze. Pours deep brown with a thin mocha brown head that has some retention and decent lacing. Starts with roasted malt, chocolate and vanilla flavors as well as having a rich, full body and smooth, roasty mouthfeel. Finishes smooth and quite dry with some oak and huge coffee flavors as well as a bit of warming booze. Pretty nice, hide the huge alcohol content well.

Twelve ounce glass at the main brewery in Downingtown. Strong, just short of mediciny. Tick mouthfeel with a taste of coffee and bourbon

Pours black from a bottle with almost no head. By the nose you know this is going to be a serious beer - coffee and bourbon on the nose. And that is what you get with the taste - this is a strong coffee bomb with some bourbon undertones. Must be sipped - this is a heavy beer. Not quite sure it is worth $7 per bottle but it is good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

malrubius (3205) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - FEB 3, 2018
Bottle from Brewtopia. Black with shrinking brown head and lotsa lace. Chocolate milk chocolate cookies aroma with light bourbon, wood, and coffee aroma. Rich heavy dark chocolate and vanilla sweetness with subdued fruit and woody cinnamon light roasted coffee bitterness. Full body oily but not cloying. This is out of my comfort zone, but TOTALLY FUCKING AMAZING.

dnstone (4174) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - JAN 17, 2018
Black color with a slight tan head that settles quickly. Significant coffee aroma, lick sticking you nose in a bag of dark roast coffee. Bitter coffee and chocolate followed by a thin bodied lightly whisky influenced vanilla flavor.

12/11/2016 -- from notes: 750ml bottle, from Dutch's. Enjoy by 17/12/17. Shared with Steph. Pitch black color. Thin khaki head, leaving great thick ridges and webs of lace. Awesome big heavy coffee flavor (hazelnutty). Earthy. Dark chocolate. Nice oak and light vanilla character from the bourbon barrel. Big bitterness, mild bite to it. Some alcohol hotness on the back-end... Wow -- just looked at the bottle.. Didn't realize this was 14.3%! Drinks like an appropriate amount of alc. for that level though. No wonder it $18 or so. But I'm loving this. A great imperial coffee stout is one of my favorite things, and this is rocking it.. I'm fascinated by high-ABV beers that don't come off too sweet. My first imperession was that it reminds me a lot of Big Bad Baptist, without the overly-sweet heaviness of the last batch I tried had. This beer reminds me of what I remember BBB years ago tasting like. Moderate sweet here, but more dry overall. Bigger body, chewy like motor oil. Seems to be a little thinner than some of the thickest imp. stout's I've had but it's got a good texture. Very mild slickness on the palate leading to a drying finish. Awesome stuff. I plan on getting 1 or 2 more. Awesome with my sandwich (I put a fried egg on it this time). Steph liked it overall, but thought it was a little thin.
