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.

Excellent balance of black coffee with black malts, each jumps out while neither dominates. The coffee is a heavy roast, and the big bitterness plays well. There's a subtle, bready caramel undertone. But dark chocolate and roasted beans are the big flavors.

The beer comes in a reddish brown copper color.

The aroma hits of slight flaws of eggs, caramel sweetness.

The flavor does not have that strange flaw really, but instead has light roasted malt, cocoa, and lots of great stiff espresso coffee flavor. A really well integrated coffee beer, albeit on the lighter side of robust qualities at 6%.

A - Pours with a dark coffee color with a tan head that subsides to a couple of millimeters. Plenty of lacing on the glass

S - Coffee and roasted malts are up front followed by an aroma of figs and some dark chocolate.

T - Coffee and dark chocolate upfront. There is a hint of hops with some fig and licorice flavor.

M - A little thin but smooth and plenty of layers of flavor.

O - A very good beer. Definitely an upfront coffee flavor but the coffee allows some other flavors room to breath. A real nice stout.

After looking forward to trying this beer for a while, I have to say I did not enjoy it at all unfortunately. Looked like an average stout at the pour; trended toward dark brown hues rather than the pitch black color of other stouts. Aroma was faint coffee...not much else. Taste was extremely unbalanced to me: all I got from it was bitter, astringent coffee grounds. No oatmeal sweetness at all. Very chalky tasting and extremely thin bodied as well. I guess I was hoping for something along the lines of Terrapin WNB with this one and it just didn't come anywhere near stacking up. I have enjoyed other offerings from Good People, but this is by far the worst thing I have tried from them to date.

Rock solid look and smell, with coffee clearly dominating the profile. But that same domination in the taste isn't particularly pleasant and comes off as almost artificial. The mouth feel is also very thin and watery, which isn't what I want in an oatmeal stout. Not a bad beer by any means, but I was hoping for more.
