Beer for Breakfast

All I wanna do is drink beer for breakfast
All I wanna eat is them BBQ chips
All I want is someone just to try to protect us
You can try but you’d never wanna try to defend us

Beer for breakfast, just like The Replacements taught us, and what would be the most appropriate beer for the first meal of a gorgeous new day? It seems quite obvious that a coffee stout would be the best choice.

Today, I present to you a few tasting notes on Troegs Java Head Stout (the first bottle of the six pack I bought while in Harrisburg last week). Not a review, nothing formal as of yet, just some notes…

-Pours a dark, deep brown… almost black
-The head is a creamy, frothy light brown… maintains this gorgeous half inch head throughout drinking
-Bittersweet chocolate aroma, coffee also evident
-Moderately carbonated
-Thick, creamy texture… sticks to glass a bit
-Complex flavor with coffee bitterness as the highlight
-Finishes dry, leaves a strong aftertaste in my mouth like I just downed a black espresso

The verdict: a great beer that makes the loss of Rugged Trail more than bearable.

A more official review to come soon, but for now, give me my beer for breakfast…
