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.

Bottle > Pint Glass

A - Poured a brown/black color, nice 1.5 finger head with a nice caramel color, some wide lacing.
S - Roasted malts, coffee beans, some nice earthy hop aroma, a little burnt toast, some other bread qualities.
T - Big bitter coffee flavor all through this, a surprisingly nice hop balance though, which is welcomed, a touch of smokey roasted malt, some toffee sweetness on the end. But the coffee lasts forever, love it!
M - Thick, rich, a little chewy and sticky, full bodied is the game here.
O - Excellent coffee stout from Troegs, this is a bigger take on the style, but the balance of hops is what I like best here, though this isnt for the feint beer drinker, its bold.

Poured into a Libbey craft beer pint (which I really enjoy) from a 12 oz. bottle

A- Deep deep brown with a pretty creamy 1/2" light brown head. Nice rings of lacing.

S- Coffee, and a bit of sweetened cocoa.

T- Coffee and toasty sugar. A slight bitter taste.

M- Fully body and creamy, very smooth with just a bit of a bitter finish.

O- This is pretty good. I'm not too keen on coffee stouts, because I feel like there is a way to achieve a coffee character without actually using coffee. However, the coffee is a good complement and does not overpower the beer.
