Availability: Year-round

Notes/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.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a BrewDog cervoise glass.

Pours black and dark but with no head.
It smells enscorcelling. Rich and delicious and viscous. Loads of coffee. Licorice. I love it.
A tasty creamy body is rich and pleasant. Good hops (Williamette). Long finish. Licorice again. This is really nice actually.
Highly recommended. Will have again. Yummy.

from a 12 oz can
Excellent tan head over a nearly black and opaque body.

Has good potential but the coffee here is too much like mediocre coffee grinds and not enough like Kona or other fine coffee beans. In any case, there's a good bit of coffee in here so this won't appeal to anyone who does not like coffee.

Moderately bitter aftertaste with simulated expresso.

Pours deep dark brown, just about black, with a big chocolate head. Aroma is dark and roasty with the coffee being nice and present, chocolatey, oats give off some sugary sweetness, and closes out earthy and bitter. Flavor follows suit. I just wish they could have lowered the dosage of hops here, far hoppier than I enjoy in a stout personally. A creamier medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, a fantastic stout up until the hops assert themselves, making it is just a really good stout (for me). That said, the more I drink of this the less an issue the hops become.
