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.”

Coffee was restrained which I like but positively added to the nose and gave a nice edge to the taste. Growler from donwild.

On tap at the Blind Tiger. Poured a black color with brown edges and a small sized off white head. Roast, coffee, some chocolate/vanilla and a bitter finish.

mcberko (17845) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 11, 2016
On tap at One Mile House, pours a deep dark amber-tinged brown with a small tan head. Aroma brings out toasted malt and fairly restrained coffee notes. Flavour is along the same lines, with lots of roasted malt upfront. The coffee is rather muted, as is the whole flavour profile. Rather underwhelming. This one doesn’t do it for me.

Draft from Beer Table. Solid coffee porter. Dry with a bit of acidic tang. The malt is noticeable too. Good.

Tap @ Roscoe (I think this is the right one, they called it "Java Head Porter"). Dark with creamy tan head. Roasty coffee plus sweet with a hig of dark fruit. Light & dry.

Dark brown color with a small, tan head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee, and cocoa. Taste of roast, coffee, cocoa, and a bit of caramel. On the thinner side.

Sammy (12210) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 10, 2015
On nitro at Barcade Brooklyn. Looked good. Mild coffee aroma. Like coffee grounds whipped up. A bit astringent.

ben4321 (6510) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 5, 2015
Draft at Fool’s Gold, 12/5/15. Dark brown-black color with a sheeting tan head and coating lace. Great looking beer. Coffee comes through bickering with a slight tartness. Lighter bodied. Smooth and very creamy. Great look and feel, but slightly disappointed by the flavor.

3.3
Sregnar35 (1030) - Rotterdam, New York, USA - MAR 14, 2015
Nitro at the bier Abbey. Pours black and thin with a small head, aroma is faint. Taste is not too roasty, mellow. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
