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.

mcberko (16598) - 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 doesnt do it for me.

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.

On nitro at Barcade Brooklyn. Looked good. Mild coffee aroma. Like coffee grounds whipped up. A bit astringent.

ben4321 (6137) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 5, 2015
Draft at Fools 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.

Damico (3146) - 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.
