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.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

12 oz bottle was poured into a nonic pont glass.

Appearance: This beer poured a two finger mocha head that reduced to a thon layer and left super awesome lacing on the glass. It is a pitch black color with no clarity or bubbles coming up through the glass.

Smell: roasted coffee, chocolate, sweet and bready oats, and vanilla.

Taste: roasted coffee and bitterness dominate all the other flavors mentioned in the aroma.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, full bodied, medium carbonation, easy to drink, and a little bit of lingering bitterness.

Overall: Pretty standard oatmeal stout. The oats seemed to have gotten lost in the roasted notes. Still a good beer though.
