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.

4.18/5  rDev 0%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Got to sample this from the kilt wearing guys at DLD. Thanks for the couple "samples". Here are the notes that I took.

A-Poured into my Dogfish snifter. Nice deep dark brown color. Nice 1/4 inch off tan head that leaves nice lacing around the glass.

S-This smells of malty goodness. Has nice hints of burnt coffee and chocolate. The roasted malts I think take the backbone of this beer.

T-Nice toasted malt taste upfront with a faint hint of hops that sneaks up on the taste as it goes down. You can taste the chocolate more after the first drink. Also, the oats shine a little more once you sip on this for a while. This is a very nice tasting beer good to it's style.

M- This is a very smooth feeling beer. I wish it was just a tad more carbinated for my pleasure. Left a kind of soapy like residue over my tounge that took me a little while to get rid of. It's a little heavy but not as much as one would expect. Nice silky feel to it.

D- I am kind of picky when it comes to stouts. This one not only had me going the entire time but I also went on a walk to get another sample as soon as my first was about gone. I would drink this as a semi-regular if I could get it here.

Serving type: growler

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
