3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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.

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.

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.
