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.

Tasting at Bruce’s. 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 don’t mean roasted, I mean properly burmed, acrid and bitter. Little coffee. Smooth finish. Pretty unpleasant.
