COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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. Pours dark brown, with a brown head. Aroma is chocolate, coffee, roasted malt, and a bit of dark fruit. Flavor is coffee, roasted malt, and chocolate. Body is a little too thin, but this is still good. Thanks to axilla for this bottle.

UPDATED: SEP 18, 2009 had to get a growler, out of cases. Nice kinda creamy body, has a nice espresso beginning taste to it with a nice silky oatmeal finish.

A nice aroma that is malty and chocolatey, the stout pours black with a tan head. The beer tastes more like just a bland stout, there is a nice chocolate presence but I did not find that the coffee came through all that much. The mouthfeel was a little lacking as well. It is a good beer, but I was a little underwhelmed on this much anticipated beer from Troegs.
