3.78/5  rDev 0%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a tulip

A: Pours midnight black with a light, cocoa colored head. The head quickly retreats, leaving a dark murky liquid resting in the glass. Good looking stout in all.

S: Notes of fresh-cut grass and an earthy roast character are notable up front. The hops don't hide in this stout, which makes for a refreshing change of pace. The aromas don't clash, but they don't exactly mesh either.

T: Lightly fruity and fresh hops welcome the palate, interestingly fading into a subtle profile reminiscent of earthy coffee beans mixed with a light, milky sweetness. The malt profile has a slightly charred twang in the finish, leaving the palate with a lasting bitter sensation. An interesting blend of flavors for the most part.

M: Smooth with suitable carbonation, as would be expected from an oatmeal stout. Medium bodied with a retreating bitter finish. Strangely refreshing for a stout.

O: I can say that I enjoyed Troeg's Javahead Stout as a variation from the norm one-dimensional, roasty stouts. The char character could have been toned down in my opinion and the hops a little more complimenting of the roast profile. However, I would rule this beer as one worthy of a revisit for its unique and surprisingly refreshing character.

3.86/5  rDev +2.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A: Near black, nice frothy head after the pour. Leaves spotty lacing around my stout glass.
S: Bit of chocolate, coffee, sweetness.
T: Sweetness up front, then balanced by coffee at the end. A little bit of chocolate notes throughout.
M: Slightly on the thick side. Love how the bitterness of the coffee lingers on the back of the tongue.
O: Pretty pleasant beer, although I would probably only have one in a session. Maybe slightly above middle of the road for this beer in its category.
