Style: American Porter

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.70%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Beanhead takes the base beer of a robust porter and pairs is with a fantastic coffee flavor that comes from a Guatemalan bean roasted by Java Love Coffee Roasting Co. in Kauneonga Lake, NY. Beanhead is completely black in color with an impressive tan head. It has a taste of intense coffee with overtones of bittersweet cocoa and caramel malt balanced with a slight earthy bitterness. While it may look filling, Beanhead is actually medium bodied and lacks the cloying sweetness that makes so many other stouts and porters seem so “heavy.”

On tap at Pony Bar.

Really nice dark brown color and tan-ish head~ 1" high.

First smell of this beer is amazing. Really nice roasty smell with hints of espresso.

Perfect balance of roasted malt with a coffee finish. The coffee tastes roasted, but not at all bitter like some coffee beers

Mouthfeel is really impressive for a 5% beer.

Overall, very impressed, if you like coffee in your beer, then this is one for you.

This beer smells fantastic when cracking the can. The coffee aroma is intense and taste is sweet and smooth. Just had Beezlebub before and this beer wins the head to head.
