COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Beanhead takes the base beer of a robust porter and pairs is with a fantastic coffee flavor that comes from a Guatemalan bean roasted by Java Love Coffee Roasting Co. in Kauneonga Lake, NY. Beanhead is completely black in color with an impressive tan head. It has a taste of intense coffee with overtones of bittersweet cocoa and caramel malt balanced with a slight earthy bitterness. While it may look filling, Beanhead is actually medium bodied and lacks the cloying sweetness that makes so many other stouts and porters seem so “heavy.”

Damico (2872) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 19, 2015
Pours dark but not super black unclear, light roasted coffee with a grayish beige head. Aroma big zesty roasted coffee, like a French press in your face, so nice. The flavor is huge coffee notes, not super thick at all but just right for a porter.

Mep3222 (842) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - JAN 10, 2015
Aroma is very coffee. Very. Like a cup of coffee. Taste has lots of malt to balance the coffee. Smooth. Dark, full flavored, smooth coffee Porter. Not smokey, slight lactose sweetness of a milk stout even. Real nice beer.... If you like coffee. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

8oz pour at Torst. Pours a watery, deep brown with some ringing off white head. Nose has a lot of fresh, fragrant coffee, nutty too, soke brown sugar, hints of dried berries, toast. Flavor has a nice blend of sweet malts, brown sugar, hints of toffee, then high quality coffee. Not too dark. Dry finish.

mansquito (4069) - Nueva York, New York, USA - AUG 28, 2014
Jimmy’s No. 43, NYC tap: Pours dark brown with a very cream, almost nitro looking, head. Aroma is coffee and chocolate, both of the smoothest kind (not that rough bitter stuff here). Taste is smooth medium roast coffee coupled with milky chocolate. That said, the body is pretty light, and this makes for easy drinking.

On tap at brewery. Nice coffee aromas. Coffee comes through in taste as well. One negative was the thin mouthfeel but overall a very nice porter that I will drink again.

Growler courtesy of Joel. Pours a deep brownish black body with thin brown lacing. Aroma is smooth roast, cocoa, light earth, vanilla and bitter chocolate. Mouthfeel is medium and smooth - very sessionable for a coffee porter. Very solid, looking forward to trying more offerings from RD.
