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

Braudog (5583) - 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)

Growler/plastic jug courtesy of blutt59. Dark brown color with a tan head. The aroma is full of chocolate, oats and roasted malt. Very nice overall. The flavor is more of the same. There is a good amount of chocolate and a hint of smoke. I also get some lactose and sugary sweetness as well as some roasted malt and oats. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Really liked this one.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a dark brown with a thick tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, charred malt, coffee grounds. Flavor of sweet roasted malt, charred malt. Coffee is faint in the flavor. Decent stout but could use a little more flavor. 7/4/7/4/14 (3.6/5)

magsinva (866) - Virginia, USA - DEC 22, 2012
Tap at hop city - pours pitch with a tan. Aroma is chocolate and bread. I didnít get any of the coffee on the nose. Taste is sweet with occasional bitter notes from the hops. Finish clean if a tad dry. Overall, solid enough, but boring.

DiarmaidBHK (3370) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 22, 2012
Draft at hop city Birmingham. Pours black with a thin khaki head. Not much on the nose. Didnít get much coffee from this or a ton of evidence from the oatmeal either. Still thereís plenty of roasted malt goodness and it finishes clean. Solid but not spectacular.
