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.

I gotta say, this is my go-to cool/rainy weather beer. We recently had some rather crappy weather come through here (understatement of the century) and it was nice to tuck into one of these beauties at the J.Clyde for some comfort and safety.

Nice, deep and dark brown, almost black. But it has a little redness scattered throughout (like a good dark roast coffee). About a finger of mocha head rested nicely on top and hung around for a bit. Not much lacing.

Love this smell. Rich aroma of the coffee. They use a local roaster and it shows. This is quality coffee, and a great aroma. A little sweetness of chocolate, but mostly coffee.

Coffee is again the first thing that jumps out. Just when you think the coffee is going to overpower it all, the bittersweet chocolate and roastiness of the oatmeal stout comes through.

The oatmeal makes it smooth and milky. This is definitely not a light beer. Full-bodied and rich.

A great beer. Good for all seasons but really shines when the weather turns to crap.

Serving type: on-tap

3.61/5  rDev -13.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

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.

Serving type: on-tap
