1/15/2010: Anyone catching onto the fact that heavy coffee stouts are my beer of choice? God this stuff is good. I might have to try this side by side with Speedway Stout (my current favorite stout) to see which one I truly like more.

Jahva is made with Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee, which is said to be among the best coffee beans in the world. As soon as you open this stuff it smells like a fresh brew cup of dark coffee. You don’t have to go hunting for a “hint” of coffee smell with this stuff. The taste can only be described as “wow.” So heavy, but so smooth and delicious. Coffee is about 75% of the taste, with about 25% bakers chocolate to compliment it. This beer is very sugary, but not to where you can’t stand it. I didn’t realize until after I was done drinking this that is was 10.4% ABV, but I was shocked when I found this out because there is not a trace of alcohol burn while drinking it. If you are a stout lover and a coffee lover, this beer is a must get. Southern Tier is quickly shooting up my list of favorite breweries.

Funny Picture of the day: Faster than a speeding… owl?
