Big coffee flavors dominate early only to be wiped out by an enormous about of Willamette hop flavors. One of GPBCís most requested beers. Complex and full of flavor yet amazingly sessionable. Brewed with coffee from Primavera Coffee Roasters here in Birmingham, AL.

Tasting at Bruceís. Can thanks to Colin. Opaque dark brown beer, good vibrant tan head. Palate is smooth and airy. Very nice mild carbonation. Malt starts smooth but it has a very unpleasant burned note, I donít mean roasted, I mean properly burmed, acrid and bitter. Little coffee. Smooth finish. Pretty unpleasant.

On tap @ Good People. Black in color with a nice tan head. Good nutty coffee and toasted malt sweetness to go with plenty of roast, chocolate, and maybe even some coconut. A hint of hazelnut and vanilla sweetness. Subtle bitterness of coffee and dark cocoa. Plenty of great coffee flavor. Probably their best beer.
