Troegs Java Head Coffee Stout Beer Review

Java Head Coffee Stout
Troegs Brewing Co. – Hershey, PA
ABV: 7.5%

CHUG Rating:
Chuggability: 6
Here’s a hint: We’re doing 2 weeks of stouts. You will not find any of these brews easy to chug. If they were easy, everyone would be doing it. But they’re not, so it’s just PoopThoughts and Homebrews32, the professionals. That tie screwed me up, also….douche

Not bad. As we continue to chug these brews, I’m seeing that beer in MA costs much more than beer in CO. That being said, I’m finding this for $10.99 per six-pack around Boston. It’s not a very low price, but at that price point around here it’s right on par with some of the best. Worth the money, go grab it
Uhhh…Taste: 7
Solid performance from the guys over at Troegs! They always manage to put out pretty good brews. Java Head is their coffee stout, which is apparently their breakfast stout that they just press through local coffee and espresso beans. It’s a big, bad, hopped up coffee. I’m not sure that drinking 3-4 of these will do anything for your energy level, but at 7.5% you’ll be feeling pretty good! This is smooth, balanced, and delicious. Troegs claims it has a “subtle” coffee flavor, I feel that its actually pretty strong. If this had one less coffee bean in the mix I might be stamping this bad boy
Gettability: 4
Unfortunately you’ll only find this in about 8 states year round. Troegs will be big, trust me. Everything good is worth waiting for, and this is one of those things

Overall Rating:   7.6

Tunes: Pearl Jam – “Even Flow”
