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.

rondphoto (2046) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - SEP 8, 2014
can @ Habersham Beverage / Savannah GA --- Opaque black color, rocky 2" brown head that stays a long time, swaths of lace. Taste is good roasted caramel malt that adds black coffee in the palate, which provides a complimentary bitter against the sweet of the malt. All moves smoothly to a long finish that becomes all coffee. A really solid beer without being overwhelming.

ChainGangGuy (4386) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAY 18, 2014
Appearance: Very dark brown, near black body with a creamyish, medium-sized, tan-hued head.

Smell: There’s a scent of dark roast coffee alongside lightly ashen roasted malt, with nominal chocolate and caramel. Lightly tangy fruitiness.

Taste: A dark crooked roasted maltiness, a hint of underlying, sustained char. Dark chocolate, a light sweetness. Sharp snap of dark fruit. Very low citrus, herb hop character and bitterness. A bit more tangy fruitiness on the drying, roasty finish.

Mouthfeel: Just a half-notch above medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.

Overall: Decent and acceptable, though not outstanding.
