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.

3.95/5  rDev -5.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Poured from 12oz can into a pint glass.

Appearance: rich, deep brown with just some highlights around the edges. Head pours two fingers of creamy tan foam with a nice retention. Quite attractive indeed!

Smell: rich and roasty with a nice sweetness and a fair bit of chocolate character. A bit like a sweet stout, but quite nice.

Taste: big and roasty, with lots of bitter, burnt character. Plenty of chocolate and coffee character come through, as well. I think it's darn good.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a nice, well-integrated carbonation and a concomitantly enticing creaminess.

Overall: this is a good beer. However, I feel like the roasty elements bring too much bitterness; good, but not outstanding when it comes to drinkability.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

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.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

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.
