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.

Pouring aggressively into a snifter yields a powerful 1.5 inch tan head that stays put for a good 3-4 minutes. Jet black in color and smells of coffee, roasted everything, etc... nice, but nothing too crazy. First taste is burnt coffee, and very bitter at that. Very subtle coco and malty goodness on the back end but, again, nothing too complex. This beer isn't nearly as "sweet" as I'd expect from an oatmeal stout. Really, it's a mid-range stout from one of my favorite breweries. Java Head is slightly above average, but doesn't measure up to the rest of Troegs great brews. Having said all this, I am glad it is part of their winter variety pack as it's a good pick for the colder months.
