Tröegs Java Head StoutTröegs Java Head Stout

Brewed by:
Tröegs Brewing Company
Pennsylvania, United States

Style: Oatmeal Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.50%

Availability: Year-round

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.

12 oz. bottle poured aggressively into a pint glass.

A. Black with a 1 to 2 finger head that dissipates rather quickly.

S. Coffee, little chocolate and hints of molasses.

T. Coffee/mocha flavors dominate. Reminds me of bitter/sweet chocolate with coffee infused in the taste. Very good. The malts and coffee total hind the alcohol as I get no alcohol taste in this brew.

M. Medium bodied. Moderate carbonation. Fairly dry overall.

O. I really did not know what to expect. I am a big fan of Founders Breakfast Stout. This stands up pretty well to Founders, although different. I would recommend this to any stout or beer lover that likes coffee.
Funny thing is that I am not a coffee drinker because I don't like hot drinks, but coffee stouts are among my favorite styles.
