Style: Oatmeal Stout

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.

A: Near black, nice frothy head after the pour. Leaves spotty lacing around my stout glass.
S: Bit of chocolate, coffee, sweetness.
T: Sweetness up front, then balanced by coffee at the end. A little bit of chocolate notes throughout.
M: Slightly on the thick side. Love how the bitterness of the coffee lingers on the back of the tongue.
O: Pretty pleasant beer, although I would probably only have one in a session. Maybe slightly above middle of the road for this beer in its category

Pours a dark brown color with a mocha colored, one finger head. Distinct coffee aroma on the initial smell. A very strong bitter coffee taste with hints of sweetness leaning towards chocolate. A dry aftertaste. Alcohol is well disguised. Leaves a bitter aftertaste in the mouth. Very good coffee stout.

Tröegs Java Head Stout has a medium-to-thick beige head, a dark brown appearance, with reddish-brown, as the sunlight hits the edges, and moderate lacing left behind. The aroma is of dark malt, roasted coffee, some rich chocolate, and, perhaps, oats. Taste is of all that, with an acrid, but not unpleasant bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy, and Java Head finishes medium dry.

A dark brown color that pours with a nice head. More coffee than chocolate on the nose and a pleasant rich creamy taste and a long coffee finish. A very pleasant stout.
