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.

12oz bottle Pour is VERY dark, head is thin but persistent. Aromas of vanilla cocoa dominate, Bittersweet chocolate with a slight spicy aftertaste. Above average but not outstanding in my opinion. Worth a try.

Tayeth (674) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - FEB 4, 2017
Geruch nach Schokolade, Beeren und Rotwein sowie Tabak. Geschmack leider nicht so voll und rund sondern eher kantig, sehr bitter und kratzig im Abgang.

12 ounce bottle. Hints of chocolate and coffee for the aroma. Pitch black in color. Sweet, taste of bitter chocolate. Smooth on the palate with a little after bite. Overall this is above average stout.
