Troegs - Java Head, A stout brewed with coffee beans

Finally! Dark beers are back in season! More dark beer reveiws to come.

Java Head poured like a black cup of coffee with a nice tan head.

Off the whiff? you guessed it lots of coffee, really nice fresh brewed coffee aroma and a touch of sweetness.

The Taste is obvious coffee up front, much lighter in the mouth than expected, medium. A light hint of dark chocolate and roasted malts but mainly the solid coffee flavor dominating the taste. Not as much bitterness as I was expecting from the hops, malts, and coffee.

Overall, really solid coffee stout. One note flavor to a certain extent but why else would you drink a coffee infused beer?

Bottom Line: Fresh Brewed Coffee, Balanced, Medium, Easy Drinker, DRINK IT!
