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.

UPDATED: OCT 23, 2010 Growler from Highland Package. Poured black with small beige head that was gone in seconds (very thin layer stayed until the end). Aroma: rich roasted malts, stale coffee beans, maybe some notes of chocolate. Taste: rich roasted malts, fresh coffee beans, mild chocolate, maybe some faint vanilla notes. Medium to a near thinnish mouthfeel. Nice lingering finish. Overall: a solid Stout. I bet if they aged some of this in oak barrels it would be fantastic.

Growler brought back north from good ole John J, Black pour with meduim tan head, You instantly notice the coffee aromas eminating from the growler. A nice dry beer with hints of chocolate, coffee, roasted malts and toast. I really enjoyed it. Well done Alabama!!!

Yum. On draft at Mellow Mushroom. Dark black pour with a tan, generous head. Overwhelming aroma of malts and coffee. Mouthfeel is almost oil thick and tastes of sugar, coffee, toffee, and hops. Finishes dry with a hoppy bite. A real treat of a beer.

Draft sample at the 2nd Annual Rocket City Brewfest. Black in the glass with a tan head. Aromas of sweet chocolate and roast. The flavor also found chocolate and roast with a hop background. Medium body and mild hoppy aftertaste.

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.

Pours solid black with a creamy tan head. Aroma is lightly toasted malt, coffee and oat. Taste is more bold coffee, cream and more coffee. Very silky body.

Served cold from tap somewhere in Birmingham, Alabama. I think it was a BBQ joint. Pours black with a lasting off-white head. Nice coffee aroma with roasted malt notes. Flavor of light floral hops, chocolate and coffee. Medium bodied. Very good stout.

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.

Draft at JClydes, Birmingham. Opaque with a lasting, creamy head. Coffee nose with some light chocolate. Flavor is coffee and more coffee, with some light caramel. Medium body is a bit too thin, and roasty dry.

Had on tap in Birmingham. Aroma is big coffee with a hint of sour. The flavor is dry roast and coffee up front followed by chocolate flavors and just a dash of hops. Nice smooth mouthfeel.
