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.

Coffee and grass nose with tart apple overtones. Mahogany, medium tan head, decent lacing. Bark, thistle, coffee, sourwood, and moss flavor. Fizzy mouthfeel, astringent, alcohol more noticeable upon warming. Very earthy and robust. Full of rustic flavor and complexity.

Growler received in trade from GPHarris thanks for the opportunity. Pours a dark brown bordering on black with a thinnish off white head that dissipates quickly. Smells of freshly roasted coffee, milk chocolate, roasted grains and a earthy bitterness. Taste is roasty chocolaty smooth with lots of coffee. Earthy bitterness mixed with a roasted grain bitterness and a drying coffee component round out the finish. Smooth creamy bordering on grainy mouthfeel, light level of carbonation, medium body. This is a great easy drinking coffee stout. The coffee is not to harsh and the oats round out the drying affects of it quite nicely. Great brew. I lost about an 1/8 of the growler and a good bit of the carbonation in transit, but the beer itself is still really good. Maybe one day I will try it at the source.

J. Clyde bar in Birmingham. I love this beer. The coffee aroma is fresh in the nose. This is a full bodied beer that starts out a little sharp but, when married with the malt backbone, is quickly mellowed into a nicely balanced beer in the finish. A rising star on the local scene.

Had a generous pour of this at Dark Lord Day 2009. Reviewed from notes. Pours a very dark brown color with a nice deep tan head. Pretty good retention. The nose is quite complex and really brings a lot of character out of the malt. Loads of coffee and chocolate plus a good amount of roast. The chocolate is more like a drier roasted chocolate as opposed to milk chocolate, and fits right in with the rest of the brew’s characteristics. Taste is pretty nice but a bit more restrained than the nose was. Still, good presence of chocolate, coffee, and roast. The body is nice and somewhat full; a bit creamy and it really serves to accentuate the beer’s flavors. All in all, very nicely done and I’m glad those guys were walking around with this stuff. Thanks again. Serving type: growler Reviewed on: 11-12-2010

Sampled at the East Nashville Beer Festival, ’11 One of the standout beers of the event, this beer was incredibly smooth, chocolate milky, and lots of smooth coffee- like a Starbucks Frapuccino. the best part was it’s incredible drink-ability- not overly bitter or roasted, it’s some4thing you could drink a few of and not get hammered or sick. Loved it.

On draft from Mellow Mushroom Tuscaloosa. Pours a dark brown with an off-white head. Nose is coffee,a bit of roast, earth, and hints of bitterness. Flavor is similar with dry coffee and roast in the front and earthy bitterness in the finish. Light to medium bodied stout. Interesting.

Alabama i love you aroma is coffee. deep, well roasted and slightly sweet coffee that really just kicked it into over drive for me. warming with light notes of sugary sweetness coming out. first sips coat the palate with rich coffee notes and a warm and subtle vanilla sweetness
