Oatmeal Stout |  6.00% ABV

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.

Appearance- Color is deep brown that isn't opaque or clear, pours two fingers of very frothy, tan colored head, the foam settles to about a quarter of it's original pour, which is a very respectable amount, and stays there, i don't think you can ask for more from a stout.

Smell; Aroma is fresh brewed coffee, with some chocolate in there as well, and a touch of Booze.

Taste- the first thing to hit you is the coffee, which has a refined, freshness to it. On top of that there are notes of dark chocolate, burned sugar, and alcohol, it's hard to tell where the bitterness from the coffee ends and the hop bitterness begins, but either way there is a sharp bitterness which nicely contrasts the rich malt flavors.

Mouthfeel; Full bodied, quite carbonated for a stout, slightly oily, moderately crisp at the end.

Overall; A delicious, satisfying and complex experience, if i had general access to this beer i would probably buy it at least a couple more times.

Serving: Can
Appearance: Dark and opaque, finger of tan head that dies down into lacing and a small collar.
Smell: Malt, sweetness, coffee, raisins, oats.
Taste: Malty sweetness in the front. Coffee in the middle. Tiny bit of hops at the finish and leaves with another bit of chocolate sweetness.
Mouthfeel: Smooth with more carbonation than I am used to seeing in this style.
Overall: Breakfast of champions. Coffee? Check. Oatmeal? Check. Fruit? Check. Chocolate? Check.
Passable local offering. Worth trying, worth sharing and wouldn’t mind having it again.

4.05/5  rDev -3.1%

No canning date, poured into a snifter

A- pours a pitch black color with a small khaki colored creamy and foamy head that eventually reduces to a thick ring around the edge

S- chocolaty malt with some smokey notes, fresh coffee, oats, fig & raisin

T- big dark chocolate bitter-sweet flavors up front with a dose of creamy espresso quickly following. Light smoky malt mixes with creamy oats, with a hint of caramel and dark fruits. The finish gives some herbal hop notes with more espresso at the close

M- medium body with medium carbonation leads to a big foamy mouthfeel with a smooth and creamy, dry finish

O- nice coffee notes and super drinkable from the oat smoothness, very good
