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 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.

Java Head Stout pours black into the glass with a medium sized, creamy tan head on top. The foam dissolves slowly leaving behind a coating of lace on the glass.

The aroma has nice notes of roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, some dark fruit and a touch of pine.

Each sip of this medium bodied beer is smooth and a little oily with light carbonation. The flavor has lots of roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, nuts, and a little pine at the end. It finishes dry and once gone the chocolate and coffee lingers on the palate.

The flavor comes out as the beer warms, especially the coffee. It's a tasty stout with a lot of flavor.
