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.

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.

A bit too burnt tasting up front, but finished pretty mellow. Dark coloring, but not too thick.

benself (11) - gardendale, Alabama, USA - MAY 18, 2009
Aroma is big on coffee and hops. The flavor is all coffee up front, and hop bitterness comes behind and cleans it up. Oatmeal provides a soft, luxurious mouthfeel. I really like the balance in this big, ambitious stout.

Skyview (5109) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - MAY 17, 2009
Sampled via roving 64-oz growler during Dark Lord Day ’09 from the Free the Hops gang in Alabama. Pours an opaque dark brown brew with a thin tan head that quickly dissolves to a fine film and no ring. Aroma of toasted dark malt, dark chocolate, oatmeal, dark roasted coffee and a touch of molasses. Taste is smooth, thick, low carbonation with flavors of oatmeal, chocolate and dark coffee. Finish is smooth, creamy with a slight coffee aftertaste. For an Alabama oatmeal stout, there’s nutt’n wrong with their beer. It drank pretty good!
