3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: OCT 24, 2010 Draft. Pours very dark mahagony with a medium beige head. Loads of coffee, roasted malt, maple syrup, some chocolate in the aroma and flavor. Some floral hops in the aroma and some bitterness in the finish. The palate is a bit on the thin side, and the coffee is not as well integrated as I’d like to see.

When I first tasted this brew, I thought - uh-oh, it’s late at night and I just started drinking coffee. Oh well, it probably helped for the ride home. It was one of Good People’s better brews in my opinion. I wouldn’t mind having some again.

growler at Free the Hops meeting, Huntsville, AL
pours black, beige/mocha head.
aroma and taste, chocolate malts, oat for a nice thick palate.
Hops give this brew a nice floral and bitter chocolate mouthfeel without hampering the stout quality.
Light coffee in the finish.

This beer is a great stout. Probably one of the first beers my wife really enjoyed. If anyone is having trouble getting someone to like craft beer this would be one of the better ones to let them try. Definately a good one.
