It has been a long time since I have had Java Head Stout by Tröegs Brewing Company. This bottle just so happened to be a year old or so I don’t think the beer was at its peak. It definitely is not a beer to cellar in hind site.
Even with the age the Java Head had some minor coffee notes that really showed up late in the finish, leaving that dry, bitter coffee flavor on the palate. I will continue to seek this beer out but I will not cellar it again. Enjoy!

Useless Fact: Many Gothic churches of the Middle Ages were built in the following way: a quarry site was established, often as much as 50 miles from the place where the church was to be erected. When the rocks were mined, volunteers from all over the countryside would form a living chain from the quarry to the building site. The rocks would then be passed from hand to hand all the way to the construction grounds.
