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!

Pours black with low tan head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, muscovado, light bourbon. Taste is roasty chocolate and coffee up front followed by a rich bourbon fiery and sweet finish. Rich and smooth body with soft carbonation.

furthur (1201) - Eagle River, Alaska, USA - JUL 8, 2017
Bottle, opaque black beer, almond colored head quickly faded to a ring. Aroma of toasted malt, metal, molasses, bourbon, cookies, coffee. Taste is vanilla, bourbon, dark chocolate, coffee, brown sugar and molasses, cookies, oak, just a touch of smoke. Palate is pretty thick, not syrup though, carbonation moderate. I smell just a bit of moukdering leaves and mold? That ABV is well hidden here, but it goes straight to your head anyway. Great flavor, but a bit sweet overall.

DiarmaidBHK (5085) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 4, 2017
Bottle from Weis Market Lewisburg. Pours black with a thick khaki head. Leaves trace lacing in the glass. Big whiskey on the nose and tongue. The coffee comes through more on the palate. Hides it’s booze well. Solid.

750 ml bottle at home with the wife. Pours a dark brown to black color with a small khaki colored head. The aroma and flavor have nice roasted coffee, dark chocolate, barrel character, vanilla, roasted bitterness to the finish, very solid and carries the abv nicely.

Thisis12ptfont (1199) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - JUN 14, 2017
Aromas of fresh brewed coffee, chocolate, vanilla, aged malts, bourbon, barrel wood, oak, toffee, roasted malts, caramel, raisins, figs, green peppers, foreign coffee, leather and dark wort malt. Pours black with a near non existent tan foam and subtle lacing. Taste brings intense roasted malts, chocolate syrup, dark cacao, dark chocolate, roasted coffee and toffee upfront. Mid palate leads way to massive barrel characteristics such as vanilla, oak, bourbon, barrel wood, leather, aged malts, leather and hints of coconut. Finishes very boozy with tons of bourbon and dark chocolate. Overall, this is a big beer with a very heavy barrel side to it. A rating.

60minuteman (1744) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 27, 2017
2016 rendition. Boozy aroma. Coffee, dark chocolate and bourbon. Getting the job done. Smooth drinker for a big brew. Lots of heat up front, malt, bitter from hop? or the coffee, dark roasted flavor. Excellent balance. Feels more like 9% than 14+. Nice.

4.4
9er (97) - Maryland, USA - MAY 21, 2017
Nice brew. What generous head. Yep, nice brains son. Nice mellow sweetness and alcohol. The bittersweet coffee flavor lingers a bit but adds to the balance here. Malty chocolate and bourbon with a hint of cocoa, mild vanilla and spice. The bourbon dances about with the carbonation. Victory, well done.
