COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

popery (1993) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUN 8, 2016
Thanks, nafesdad. The beer is black with brown edges. The head puffed up hugely as I poured the beer. It settles into a thick blanket of light brown foam. Lots of lacing, very good retention. The aroma has a lot of caramel, molasses and some chocolate. The coffee flavor is also strong, but itís a bit of a nondescript dark roast with some ash and a little fruit. Light metallic note. The taste is on the sweet side but thereís a pretty hefty dose of roasty bitterness, particularly in the aftertaste. Nice caramel malt sweetness at the base. The coffee flavor on top of that isnít my favorite and is quite strong. Some chocolate, again. Some mild hoppiness. Lots of coffee in the finish. Light but creamy feel. The coffee feels pretty strong with caffeine in the beer, but maybe, Iím just sensitive to that. Pretty good.

kermis (10238) - Where the wild whales are, NETHERLANDS - JUN 7, 2016
Can shared / road soda. Dark brown with a big beige head. Aroma is exactly what it says on the tin upfront, coffee and oatmeal with pretty strong metallic notes, roast, caramel and cocoa. Flavour is above moderate sweet and moderate bitter. Light medium bodied with soft carbonation.

Gespuccian (129) - Wisconsin, USA - APR 29, 2016
This is good. Dark, dark brown. Thick creamy head. Coffee and dark roasted malt on the nose. Coffee hits you on the first sip, but subsides as a silky oatmeal and malt dominates the palate. Not as much a coffee stout as an oatmeal stout, IMHO. But still very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nice deep dark brown color and tannish head. Heavy aromas of chocolate and coffee. Sweet and creamy chocolate and coffee flavors with a nice touch of hops at the end.

vyvvy (5857) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - MAR 12, 2016
The beer pours brown with with a tab head. The aroma has has creamy roasty malt, coffee, chocolate, and light soy. It has a medium light body with mild soft carbonation. The taste starts off with coffee, bitter roast, woodiness and paper. The finish is super dry and woody hops. This seems like itís on the older side, but aging fairly gracefully.

Can shared by Bvery, thanks buddy! Dark brown pour. Nice smooth coffee aroma. Taste is well balanced between the coffee, chocolate, and oats. Nothing overwhelming but pretty good.
