4.03/5  rDev +6.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured into a nonic glass at 41 degrees.

Appearance: A one finger medium tan head that is creamy and foamy with good retention. The color of the beer is dark brown color near black. The clarity of the beer is opaque. There is some effervescence on the side of the glass. The head is leaving some lacing on the glass.

Nose: A medium roasted malt, that toasty, caramel, toffee, and bittersweet chocolate, floral bouquet, coffee, and fruity esters. There are subtle notes of phenols molasses, oatmeal, and solvents.

Taste: A rich roasted malt, with vibrant espresso for the initial taste. There are other flavors of toffee, bittersweet chocolate, floral bouquet, french roast, and fruity esters. There are side notes of solvents, molasses, oatmeal, and phenols.

The mouth feel is dry, rich, and slightly astringent.

Overall: The body of the beer is medium thick and the finish is full. This beer is very unique, it doesn't have the flavors of a strong oatmeal stout. The coffee flavor lends to a unique profile to the beer taste like on the palate. The oatmeal cuts the strong coffee flavor but only in half. I was hoping for more a smoother flavor in an oatmeal stout.

A: poured a very dark brown with a half finger head that dissipated quick and left a little sticky lacing.

S: roasted malts and oatmeal cookie aromas with some booze in the mix and hints of coffee and barbeque.

T: coffee bourbon and roasty malt flavors with hints of chocolate, vanilla, and a mild hop bite.

M: medium body with moderate amount of carbonation and has a slight bitter finish.

D: really enjoyed the java head and had bourbon notes that made it more intresting and complex. Drank well and would love to get more of. This dark dank.

22 oz bottle split and poured into a Sierra Nevada 30th Anniversary tulip. 7.5% ABV, 082509/090728 printed on the neck.

Thanks for nothing Beerwolf77! HA! :P

A - A seriously tall pour unleashes a two-and-a-half finger head that's light tan and dense as can be with great retention and thick webbing forking like upside-down lightning bolts. The beer is a totally black color, void of any light passage.

S - Bits of coffee bean poke through but not enough to support the Java Head name. The nose is much hoppier than expected. Bold citrus and mild pine combine for an American hop nose similar to a Black IPA. Black roasted malts have a light bitter scent that falls to the end.

T - Dark roasted malts and faint coffee comprise all of the mild flavor. There is such little going on here it's incredibly disappointing. Maybe there is too much age on it, but for a beer like this it should be able to withstand. Very average flavor. The hops are super mild in the flavor too.

M - Medium-bodied and dry to the finish, Java head is mediocre in the mouthfeel regard as well. The end is lightly bitter and increasingly dry with each sip.

D - This is a really disappointing coffee stout. It's lacking in just about every regard. The coffee needs serious bringing out but it's a decent starting point.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Poured into a nonic.

Pours a very dark brown, near black color. Has a thick creamy tan head, that settles into a nice lace island. Brew has good lacing. Pretty Good looking brew.

Brew smells of roasted malts, citrus hops, nutty (coffee bean maybe), oatmeal. Does not smell anything like I imagined, almost like a dark IPA.

Brew is very smooth and has a roasted malt flavor initially with that creamy malt, then has a citrus hop flavor in there in the finish. A very unique flavor, and was fully unexpected. Slightly peppery bitter dry finish. Full bodied, full flavored. This is a brew that has a great balance and great mix of flavors. Sweet citrus hops, matched by chocolate & oat flavored roasted malts. Great stuff.

This is a very tasty, very sesisonable, very good stout. Damn fine stuff, and at 7.5% it goes down way easy. Very impressive stuff. This is a new "case worty" favorite for me.

12oz bottle courtesy of aglose45.

A: Very dark brown, verging on black, light tan head of about an inch that is settling down to a quarter of an inch or so cap. Nice spots of lacing. Decent looking beer.

S: Definitely can smell the coffee in this one, nice chocolate notes as well, decent amount of roasted malts, just a slight bit of booze as well. Not bad.

T: More of a true coffee flavor as opposed to the roasted malt profile in stouts, the roast is still there and is quite nice, but the coffee flavor really stands out. Chocolate takes a bit of a back seat to the coffee, still there but not dominant. Quite strong citrusy profile and decent hoppy bitterness kinda of steer things in a different direction on the finish. Interesting.

M: Velvety, light carbonation, decent amount of thickness, with a slightly acidic mouthfeel from the coffee. Just a little bit of booze on there as well. Not bad here.

D: I think if this were on tap at a bar I could have multiple pints in a night. This is a pretty tasty stout. Normally the hoppier stouts don't really do it for me, but his one works out okay. A slightly bigger body would help it, not much but a little would be nice.

Thanks Adam!

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Big thanks go out to MADhomebrewer for including this one as an extra for an in person trade. I can now scratch this off my want list and enjoy my first beer from Troegs.

The pour is very nice. A big four finger head rises up over the dark brown body and dissipates at a moderately quick pace. The head itself is brown cremini mushroom in color and has small tight bubbles. Some mild lacing is evident throughout the drink and is good overall.

The smell threw me for a loop. Blindfolded I might have been able to identify this as a black IPA but the roast in the background is dominated by the sweet citrus hops that impart tropical fruits and ripe pineapple. While it does not smell like a stout, it does smell very good and is inviting.

The taste is the most unique aspect of this beer. Sweet tropical hops dance across the taste buds and lightly roasted french pressed coffee is a good pairing as the tango progresses. Earthy semi-sweet chocolate provide a substantial backbone to the aromatics on the front side. It has a bit of what the Japanese call umame as well, the indescribable little extra nuance in the background. Its very complex and unique.

Mouthfeel is comparable to Peche Mortel. There is very low soft carbonation that feels velvety sliding across the palate. Some super fine espresso ground coffee shows up on the teeth just after the swallow. Its very nice and an experience in itself.

Drinkability is very easy. I split the bomber with the wife and we both drank it too fast. We both were wanting more after the initial glass and were left scouring the house for something else similar but ended up disappointed because nothing else fit the bill. Black IPA's don't have this much complexity typically and stouts don't have a citrus profile similar to this. Its a bit of a hybrid in my opinion that can't really be categorized as one or the other.

I liked this more than I expected I would and will be seeking out some more in a future trade. This falls squarely into my underrated category and will be a must try recommendation to anyone with access to it. I'm guessing this is about 8-9 months old and is drinking amazingly well! I suggest you serve it cold. As it warms up it becomes more complex and showcases different attributes. The wide range from cold to room temperature is an experience to be savored. Great job Troegs!

finally a chance to review this one as it is my third of this so far.. thanx to smutty33 for pickin this up in MA as we can't get it in CT. Okay so this is Troegs but it's definitely not a nugget nectar... but it's ok...

A - poured into a tulip and it had a nice inch head that dissipated rather quickly.. but it leaves behind decent lacing.. it's dark and maybe a little light but it looks ok.

S - a small subtle smell of coffee in there.. it's not overpowering but rather fair. a nice porter smell. this smells like more of a porter than a stout.

T - light bodied and very smooth. i do taste some coffee and chocolate notes. they are fair. this is not going to clobber you with flavor, but the flavor is subtle.. i think this will be good for a beginner. and it's great on a hot summer day.

M - Carbonation is good. it is also light but there is a little velvetty creaminess. it's not a heavy, sticky feel...

D - It's very sessionable so I give it a decent mark here. It is not a nugget nectar so i am a tad disappointed that this flavor isn't a bit more pronounced.. but this is good.. i wouldn't seek it out but i drank the three i have no problem.. if you are a beginner or you just like stuff not so heavy on the palate then i believe you will love this..

Thanks to kmurray8621 for this bomber. Split and poured into my tulip the beer is pitch black with about two fingers of light khaki head. After slowly fading the walls of the glass are covered with sticky lace.

The aroma is very muted. What is there is light coffee and chocolate. Hints of hops and roast malt. It take some serious inhaling to pick u any of that. There's a touch of earthiness in there as well.

The flavor is not much stronger than the nose. Pretty much the same characters just a hint stronger. Chocolate, coffee and hops. Not a real strong flavor in the bunch.

Medium body with light to moderate carbonation.

Overall rather dissapointing. I had high hopes for this one. It turned out to be a less then memorable beer. I do have another bottle so I will edit my review if I feel the need.

A) Pours with a thick, tan colored head. Lacing is a mixture of big and little bubbles and very sticky. Body is opaque.
S) Coffee. Roasted grains with hints of chocolate.
T) A rich blast of chocolate an coffee up front and stays balance all the way though. In the finish a bitter chocolate and hints of alcohol.
M) Smooth. Creamy. Full body.
D) A delicious stout. Wow. Like liquid chocolate ice cream.

I drank this from a 12oz bottle into my Orval glass...The beer is black with a small but nice thick and foamy head, good lacing, really nice...The aroma is super light, a little coffee a little sweet, wish it was much strong...The taste is also super light, a little sweet coffee...The feel is light and watery but makes its super easy to drink...Its ok, easy to drink, but just not super flavorful. I guess you can say its a crushable porter, not a full oatmeal.

A- Very black beer that poured a large head. Left very creamy lacing on glass...

S- Smells of roasted malts and coffee, not much else to it; but thats not necessarily a bad thing

T/M- Tasted much sweeter than the nose alludes to. Chocolate sweetness leads into the aftertaste, leaving little wiggle room for bitter roast to show. As the flavor settles and ends, it is ALL coffee... Fairly medium bodied with little carbonation.

D- Fairly drinkable. I'm a big stout fan and this beer lies in the middle of the road as far as what I have had... Not amazing, but still good!

Mostly black apperance with some dak brown color to it. Minimal head fades to slight ring around glass.
Aromas of fresh brewed coffee. Some hints of light roasted grains. Citrus hops mix in with a liquorice and alchol scent.
Dark roasted coffe and heavy toasted flavors are first noticed. Some mildly bitter citrus flavored hops liven things up mid-way through. Toasted grains and faint alchol flavors wrap things up at finish.
Medium body is well recieved with a smooth quality.
Always look forward to try a different offering from Troeggs. This perhaps is not the best offering from there impressive line-up. However worth a try

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

12 ounce bottle poured into a standard pint glass.

Pours a dark black, pretty opaque. Very little head, but what is there is clinging and sticking around.

There is coffee in the smell, for sure. There is a sweetness there, too...like cane sugar and honey. Some chocolate, cinnamon, smoke, and cream.

The taste is quite bittersweet...lots of coffee in the flavor, balanced with some chocolaty malts, brown sugar, and toffee. It has the nice qualities of a dry stout, maybe a milk-stout, with the added flavors of bitterly acidic coffee.

This one is pretty dry, with a nice sweet finish. A good coffee stout, though perhaps a little too active on the tongue (too much carbonation/fizz, causing some of the more crucial flavors, like coffee, to feel more astringent).

This is, however, quite drinkable. Perhaps not for an entire evening, but one that will last a few bottles before moving on.

Poured in to Unibroue tulip

A - Poured black with a finger of coffee coloured head and some visible carbonation.

S - Coffee, hops and roasted malts. A nice nose.

T - The hops are more present than I expected and hit you up front with coffee, with a very obvious sweetness and roasted malts. Some chocolate in the background as well.

M - medium body. A little too much carbonation for my liking.

D - Gets a little sweet after a while, especially since I have a bomber of this to go through. Otherwise, the flavour profile is very enjoyable.

Pours a black color with two fingers of tan head that fades slowly with chunky lacing. I'd almost say the hops are more pronounced in the aroma than the coffee, which hangs around in the back behind a nice floral hop aroma and hints of roasted malt and chocolate. The taste starts out without a lot of influence from the coffee, just a nice, dry, malty stout flavor, but then shows up big time on the finish. Coffee, dark chocolate and strong bitterness on the finish, but it actually goes out pretty clean. Body is medium, drinkability is good. This beer is a nice, balanced stout and I was pleasantly surprised since I was expecting the coffee to be more pronounced.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a bomber into a regular pint glass.

A: Pours a deep dark, sexy black, with a nice tan foamy head.

S: Smells of dark chocolate, hops, roasted coffee and subtle coconut, and maybe milk? Like a milk stout's lactic sugar.

T: Taste follows nose, but is a little too sweet and has an obvious lack of roasted malts and/or roasted coffee which I really, really want. There is coffee flavor there, and I know it seems contradictory to say that this coffee flavor evokes no roasted profile, but that's how it is! I know that this isn't necessarily a full-blown Imperial stout, but it would really benefit from a thicker body and more roastiness whether from the malts or the coffee.

MF: That said, it is an oatmeal stout! So this really dashed my hopes of a velvety viscosity against the rocks of watery reality. Otherwise, a very iconoclastic coffee stout in my opinion, as the hops really shine through all of the other powerful flavors.

D: ABV completely masked, and it leaves a nice sticky, foamy lace down the glass as I imbibe. As it gets to about room temperature it becomes more complex, but more watery, so better, but barely so.

12 oz bottle poured into pint glass

A: Pours a nice deep black color which when held to light shows a bit of ruby around the edges. Has a finger of tan head that dissipates slowly leaving some lacing

S: Aroma is of coffee and chocolate, with some underlying notes of vanilla and some cherry and some pine as well

T: Taste is of pine, roasted malts and coffee at first, followed by chocolate, with hints of vanilla and cherry. Finishes with notes of burnt coffee and pine.

M: Smooth, silky and medium bodied, with a bit of warmth behind it, but not much warmth. Very enjoyable

D: Very enjoyable, and the 7.5% abv is not noticeable, I could definitely drink a few of these.

Overall, I really enjoyed this beer. It has a lot of pine and coffee flavor to it, and its a very good stout.

Tröegs Java Head is a solid black beer with a thin, dense, light brown head that leaves solid sheets of lacing. It has a roasty, almost ashy, aroma with notes of coffee and pine. It's medium bodied and incredibly smooth, with a light, graceful finish. It's nice and roasty and well balanced with a light sweetness and a resiny bitterness. There are notes of ultra roast coffee and licorice. This is great. It's really tasty, pretty complex and very drinkable. It's very similar to Victory and Weyerbacher imperial stouts-- clearly of the Pennsylvania pursuasion.

Bomber comes courtesy of brees6221.

A- Pours black with two fingers of frothy, mocha colored head. Plenty of multi-tiered lacing adorns the glass. Great head retention.

S- Good notes of roasted coffee and chocolate. Very sweet undertone to it along with a slight hint of vanilla to it.

T- Roasted coffee plays a predominate role, but a slight vanilla flavor also comes into play quite nicely. Finishes off slightly sweet and bitter at the same time.

M- Prickly mouthfeel, a little thinner than I expected but still a medium body.

D- Good, I polished off a bomber of this easily. Very smooth and easily drinkable along with a mid-range ABV.

22 oz. bottle. Pours a completely opaque dark brown, with a good sized fluffy light brown head, good lacing throughout. Aroma is sweet and roasted malts, cocoa, coffee, oats, and some floral hops. Flavor is roasted malt, dark chocolate, coffee,burnt and lots of earthy bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium, creamy, and lots of coffee bitterness that lingers at the end. Good beer, nice balance, although I didn't expect this much bitterness.

Poured with a nice head, looks good. Definitely has the slight sea foam stout look to it. scents of dark black coffee and grapefruity hops can be detected but it smells weaker than expected. Tastes a little weaker too... The bitter, puckering black coffee flavor is obvious, but otherwise a pretty standard oatmeal stout. Its good, not my favorite. I enjoy it, but it falls a bit short on the coffee taste- its there but its not as full as I was hoping. A good, bitter stout made with coffee overall. The mouthfeel is a bit drying - from the coffee maybe? Or possibly the hops. I'd have another, but I feel like if the coffee flavor was stronger I'd love it.

12oz btl into Chimay chalice. Bottled 3/8/10. I'm really diggin' this label.

A: Pours near black with only about 1 inch of expresso-foam colored head from a rather aggressive pour. Head dissipates pretty rapidly...its only a sparse layer by the time I get a chance to observe the aroma. Nice looking beer, but i would have liked a bit more head and retention.

S: Faint aromas of dark malt and mild, old school diner coffee. I'm actually dissapointed with the overall lack of smell here. Even as it warms this is not a very aromatic beer. IMO aroma should generally be a strong point of coffee beers.

T: Malty sweet off the bat and then quickly balanced by some bitter malt flavor and a bit of hoppiness. Just when I'm about to wonder where in the hell the coffee is, I get a big dose of dry, nondescript coffee lingering on from the finish through the aftertaste. Also some semi-sweet chocolate chips hanging around in the finish as well.

M: Carbonation is about right for the stlye. Mouthfeel is ok, although bigger, more "extreme" stouts have spoiled me with higher levels of viscosity.

D: High. The way that this beer finishes strong with its sweet chocolate and dry coffee keep me coming back. ABV is a little too high to session this beer, but I could definitely have more than one and enjoy it.

Overall I was slightly disappointed with Java Head. One thing that I took note of was the 7.5 abv...I would have had this pegged at about 5% given the way it feels and drinks. This isn't a bad beer by any strech of the imagination, but given some of the amazing beers in this segment, Java Head just gets lost in the shuffle. For comparisons sake, I'm going to make it a point to try this beer on tap the next time I have an opportunity. Worth a try, but don't go out of your way to grab one.

12 oz. bottle into a standard pint glass
Poured ruby-brown, almost black with a 2-finger head which settled into a thin layer but lasted. Lacing is heavy and lasting. The nose is citrus, roasted chocolate coffee. Mouthfeel is creamy and good carbonation is evident. Taste is sweet chocolate, roasted coffee, with a small citrus hop bitterness. Vanilla is at the end as well.
I have had this on-tap at the brewery and loved it. Bottled is good as well and I would have it again absolutely.

A - Dark brown, nearly pitch black color with a good inch (tan) head that has insane retention. Leaves beautiful lacing.

S - Citrus hops, roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, and a hint of earthiness (Oats). The coffee and chocolate aromas aren't as robust as I would like.

T - Matches the aroma traits, but with more pronounced coffee and chocolate flavors. Bitter coffee and hops help add to a pleasantly bitter finish.

M - Well above average levels of carbonation take some of the smoothness away from this Oatmeal stout.

D/O - A well crafted, Coffee laced Oatmeal Stout from the bros in H-Burg. It's worth a try, but I don't really see myself drinking this beer again anytime soon. Nothing really jumps out at me when I'm drinking this beer. A good Tröegs brew, but not a great Tröegs brew. Bring back the original Oatmeal Stout. Cheers.

An extra sent to me in a recent trade. 12 oz bottle, decanted and poured into a pint glass.

A: Very dark brown, almost black in color. Little to no light shines through. Head is cream colored, and about a finger thick. Retention is good, along with decent lacing.

S: Hoppier aroma than most coffee stouts. Some grassy and floral notes are strongly noticeable. Other smells include chocolate, coffee, and toast.

T: Coffee dominates the palate, along with hints of chocolate, molasses, and dark fruits. The coffee gives distinct bitterness. Hops lend a slightly floral character in the backround. Finish is quite clean and pleasant.

M: Medium bodied, but has a very silky mouthfeel. Flavors coat the palate, and remain for long after each sip.

D: Java Head is a solid example of this style. A bit lighter than others, it's a great beer for people getting into coffee stouts. It's a beer that I will seek out again in the future.
