JavaHead Stout, first released as Scratch 15, contains a blend of locally roasted espresso and Kenyan coffee beans by St. Thomas Roasters in Linglestown, PA.

This recipe is based off of our original 2005 oatmeal stout. After the boil the hot wort passes through our hopback vessel packed full of whole leaf hops and a bed of coffee beans - akin to a French press - intensifying the coffee nose and releasing hints of coffee flavor. The result is a lush oatmeal mouthfeel balanced with cocoa, roast and subtle coffee flavors.

Bottle poured into a snifter produced a finger worth of tan head on a black body. The head fades away to a nice thin lace Great aromas of coffee and chocolate fill the nose. Flavors mimic the nose and there is a little sweetness there as well as great mouthfeel Thanks again Santa wanted to try this one and weren’t disappointed. I would gladly drink more. Way to go Tröegs

Bottle in trade from JB175. Thanks! Pours dark brown to black with medium lived creamy tan head. Smell is roasty, with some coffee and creamy notes. Taste is lightly charred malt and a touch of coffee and fairly bittered from the dark malt or hops. Tastes more and more strongly of coffee as I drink it. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Pretty solid beer.

Darker brown in color with a bold, roasty, coffee-heavy aroma. Flavor has a nice amount of coffee and a hefty roast to it with hints of chocolate and malty sweetness. Nice finish - solid coffee stout.

Bottle: pours a dark brown with a thin tan head, aroma of coffee and chocolate, taste is malty, coffee, bitter, lighter body than I like to have in a stout. Still, solid stuff...would be nice if Troegs made this one regularly.

Bottle... Pours murky and dark brown with a small, frothy, tan head. Good, swirling, hurricane/Milky Way galaxy-like retention. Milk chocolate and freshly ground, dark roast coffee dominate the nose. Medium to full-bodied and very creamy with prickly carbonation. Heaps of coffee, flanked by slightly lesser notes of chocolate and charcoal. Well-balanced between the burnt and bitter and the chocolaty-sweet. Lengthy, acrid, bitter finish. Kudos to axilla for shipping this very nice brew my way.

Pours a very dark brown bordering on black with a medium sized light brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee beans, oats and grains. Taste of roasted malts, coffee, oats and grains.

Bottle from machfive55. He the Troegs man! Blackish pour. Small tan head. Aroma is chocolate, coffee and oats. Flavor hits you with spent coffee grinds, some chocolate and a fair hit of bitterness. Not bad, but a bit thin.
