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.

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 (1470) - 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.

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.

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.
