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.

On-tap in the brewery.

A: Looks pitch black unless parked next to an imperial (like GP's Fatso RIS). The creamy, almond-colored head stays throughout with excellent lacing.

S: The coffee blend leaps to the front here. Still plenty of cocoa to go with the coffee, as well as simple roasted malt; the balance rivals the best breakfast stouts.

T: The coffee and malt blend stays present at the front, but the beer is not overly sweet. The bitter hop sweep at the back end clears the palate and leaves you wanting more.

M: Full-bodied and rich, but nothing close to an imperial.

O: My favorite of GP's many great beers.

Had on tap @ J Clyde and this one is a winner.

A - Very very dark brown, just a touch under black. Poured with a nice creamed coffee head. Nice lacing down glass as consumed.

S - Very fragrant with aromas of coffee, cream, dark chocolate, and woody aroma.

T - big coffee front turning to a chocolate/dark malt middle finishing with a bittering & earthy flavoring hops finish. Complex tasting beer considering the big dominant flavors each holding their own versus the other, especially considering the relatively low ABV.

M - Nice, not overly carbonated and very smooth/creamy feel.

D - I can, and have, session this beer. Considering the complexity of this beer it's surprisingly very drinkable.

Very good beer. If given the opportunity, I would love GPBC to brew an Imperial version as a seasonal.

Fantastic.

Appearance is a deep opaque dark brown. I think the coffee actually may have shifted this from black to dark brown.

Aroma is almost 100% coffee. It's a bit shocking, actually.

The first sip is like the aroma, almost 100% coffee, and intense. And you start to think this is overdone. Too intense on the coffee. They messed up the balance on this one.

But then the hops hit you. Glorious Willamette. Coffee on the front end, hops on the back end, and the dark malts lurking in between, popping out here and there. The hoppy aftertaste sucks you in, bringing you back for more and more and more. For anyone who likes coffee and hops, this is ridiculously drinkable. And you have no business ordering this if you don't like coffee. And if you're a hop head, well then all is right in the world.

One of my favorites. Beautiful very dark brown color with a lovely fine brown head of foam that left nice rings of Belgian Lace in the glass. The nose was upfront coffee, oats, and chocolate. The tasted started with a fine mix of coffee and velvety oats/dark chocolate malt (breakfast anyone) with a nice balance of hops to malt. Not overly carbonated and very easy to drink.

Had this beauty on tap at The J. Clyde. I absolutely love everything about this beer! Made with Primavera coffee, there is no beer more "local" in Alabama. I cannot wait until they are capable of distributing outside of the state. This is the best stout to be found in Alabama!

A beer that feels every bit as good as it tastes, the GP Coffee Oatmeal Stout never fails to wow the taste buds. The coffee is prominent without being overbearing. The oatmeal lends a creamy mouthfeel to the beverage. The malt balances out with the bitterness of both the hops and coffee with no element overwhelming another. An excellent session beer, you will no doubt feel a bit perkier for having selected it.

Such a great beer. Pours a deep black with tan head. Nose starts out with coffee, roastiness, etc. Taste is great. Deep roasty flavors, hints of coffee and semi sweet chocolate. Oatmeal lends the stout a smooth, velvety mouthfeel. Truly one of my favorite beers.

Wow. Amazing beer.

A: Dark - very dark. Chocolatey head that dissipates slowly.

S: Smells of hops and coffee. Amazing smell.

T: Deep, dark, and delicious. Coffee shines through, with a huge hop finish. Very hoppy, but no obtrusively so.

M: Chewy and very nice.

O: Another great beer from a great brewery. I've not tried anything from them that wasn't awesome.

Had this at the Good People tap room yesterday, on tap of course

First off, this is the first on tap brew I've had in a VERY long time that was poured with a head. I live in MS where people consider beer with a head a rip off. So thank you for this! Beautiful brew btw

Smells like a good iced coffee, tastes even better, strong espresso, not getting much oatmeal, maybe a bit of chocolate with a nice hoppy kick. Very tasty on a cold day, can't wait to see this canned, I will be making the 3h trip to pick more up!
