From tap. Dark brown pour, thick light brown head. Roasted malt and coffee aromas. Bitter coffee flavors with more roasted (burnt?) malt. Long black coffee finish. Somewhat thin, but balanced and enjoyable. rollinsr (817) - Atlanta, GEORGIA - APR 11, 2017

Walnut and tobacco, charred oak aroma. Black, thin head. Leather, tobacco, molasses, charred oak and walnut. Medium to full body, easy carbonation. A really good stout from a brewery I don’t usually like very much.

Bottle. This is a pretty bland and generic stout. Nothing really note worthy here. ChainGangGuy (4925) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - FEB 25, 2016
12 ounce bottle - $1.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.
Appearance: Pours a very dark brown body with a diminutive, light beige head.
Smell: Chocolaty, carob aroma, a little bit nutty with a fruitiness akin to dates.
Taste: Robustly malty, with a good taste of chocolate, carob, and, as with the nose, it’s a mite bit nutty. Moderately sweet. Dark fruitiness. Sugar-sweetened coffee. Restrained hop character only hinting of pepper and spice and with just a sliver of bitterness. Moderately roasty in the finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Lightly creamy mouthfeel.
Overall: Will GB make you cry out GD? Uncertain. BUT, it’s a tasty, likable stout. unclemike (3163) - Junction City Kansas, Kansas, USA - JUL 12, 2015
Malty aroma. Taste is roasted malts, well balanced, good co2. Good tasting stout, a little on the thin side or watery for this style. Overall decent, nice bite up front for this brew. BeerdedDave (1875) - Beckley, USA - APR 14, 2015
