COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Big coffee flavors dominate early only to be wiped out by an enormous about of Willamette hop flavors. One of GPBC’s most requested beers. Complex and full of flavor yet amazingly sessionable. Brewed with coffee from Primavera Coffee Roasters here in Birmingham, AL.

Can shared in London - thanks, Colin. Pours clear brown with a creamy beige head. The nose has strong roast, burnt toast and milk chocolate. Light to medium sweet flavor with sturdy roasted malts, dark bread, light earthy bitterness, further milk chocolate. Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation. Decent balance to finish with slight bittersweet cocoa, burnt wood, earth. Nice one.

Scopey (6147) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 27, 2014
Can thanks to Colin. It pours darkest brown with a small tan head. The nose is earthy, toast, candy, caramel, coffee, cocoa and milk chocolate. The taste is toasty, earthy, cocoa, burnt notes, mild acidity, charred wood with a dry, roasty finish. Light-medium body and fine carbonation. Burned.com but the best al tick I’ve had.

DrunkSanta410 (216) - Georgia, USA - FEB 21, 2014
On tap at Chattahoochee Brewing Co in Phenix City, AL. Nitro version. Pours opaque black with thick nitro head. Aroma is great, roasty cocoa notes with hints of coffee beans. Taste is creamy chocolate, whipped cream and roasted coffee malts. Some lingering bitterness. Good flavor, just not super refined, like a left hand milk stout. Palate is thick and creamy, as expected from a nitro pour. Overall, surprisingly good. Really enjoyed this one.

jefcon (1354) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - OCT 3, 2013
Full-flavored coffee and roast, with a lot of hopping. The coffee is a fresh-brewed-tasting component of the beer. Not too dark or mealy, and with a very clean finish.

Itzjerm (1140) - Taft, Tennessee, USA - SEP 28, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 9, 2014 Many coffee stouts are much better. Sweet with a bitter punch. Nice coffee carbonation. Update from can. Over carbonation. Nice at 6 percent. average. doesnt seem as much coffee as just dark roast grain.

Kind of weak. Thin, watery, with flavors of coffee and roasted barley. Slightly metally. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Braudog (5576) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - JUN 25, 2013
Draft at Pine Bar. A+ visuals ... Deep, dark reddish-black, the head is big, firm and tan. The coffee aroma carries several inches and is quite distinct. On my tongue, this some exceptional stuff ... Full-up coffee character, this would go great with a meaty omelette! New Alabama favorite! (#5077, 6/25/2013)
