Notes / Commercial Description:
JavaHead is like a day at Tröegs; it’s hard to tell where the coffee ends and the beer begins. This creamy oatmeal stout is infused with locally roasted, cold steeped coffee through our HopBack vessel, releasing subtle hints of cocoa, roasted nuts and dark mocha.

Nice look, ultra dark with a chocolate head. Scent of unsweetened dark chocolate and toasted malt with some sweetness to the nose. Flavorful with the coffee coming through on the flavor. I actually get an initial sweetness going into a bitter finish. Something slightly astringent towards the end. Creamy and thicker mouthfeel with adequate carbonation. Up my alley at least for one now and then.

Pours dark
Doesn't smell like coffee although I think it should.
Taste is like the last bits of coffee left in your cup. Bitterness from the hops is big. This isn't as full bodied as I think it should be.
Overall I'd rather have some peche mortel

Poured from a 12oz glass into a speiglau stout glass.

Look is a deep rich black with a coffee and milk colored head.

Aroma is astrigent coffee and roast malt.

Taste is a blend of bitter coffee and roast malt.

Not much balance definitely swings roasted bitter, but good.

Black in color with just a suggestion of light penetration. There's a fingernail of khaki on top. Moderate lacing. The aroma is of flaked oats with the coffee as a distant background note. The coffee calms down as it warms and then it seems fairly balanced but the coffee is a bit more dominant than the oatmeal. The mouth is lightly a touch warm with alcohol and a bit thick for an oatmeal stout.
