Review: Troegs Java Head Gets an A-

Appearance: Nice initial and sustaining head on this thick dark stout.

Smell: Coffee, oatmeal, sweetness. Good stout smell.

Taste: Well done beer, yet again, by Troegs. Only problem is there was nothing that stood out about it. For a name like Java Head, I was expecting maybe the coffee to really stand out, but it didn’t. It was like weak coffee. That’s not to say it was bad; it wasn’t. It just wasn’t exceptional.

Mouthfeel: There wasn’t as much to this brew as other stouts. Still solid, just not crazy.

Drinkability: This is a repeater. Maybe not too much so, because at 7.5% it still packs a punch. But it’s an easy beer to finish off while chatting with the bartender.

You know, cuz you’re a lonely guy reviewing beers on the internet. What else are you doing?

Serving type: on-tap
