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.

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

A - Pours with a dark coffee color with a dark brown color and a pale white head that doesn't last long

S - Coffee and roasted malts are smelt easily after opening and while pouring. Secondary smells of dark chocolate.

T - Simi-sweet chocolate upfront with a slight coffee aftertaste and dark malt following

M - Not too thick just about right on the oatmeal stout front

O - I like it. Not as much as some of my favorite breakfast coffee stouts like Wake-n-bake and FBS, but I will definitely make sure I have these in my fridge for those chilly nights. Very reasonably priced too.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

A - Pours with a dark coffee color with a slight tinge of brown to it. It's carrying some carbonation with a two finger medium khaki head.

S - For a coffee stout, it's subdued. Granted the coffee flavors are there, but not in your face like I would expect. Secondary smells of roasted malts and light dark chocolate.

T - It delivers what I expect from a coffee stout... Coffee, roasted malts & a bit of dark chocolate, just like the nose. There's a bit of a bitter finish.

M - For the style, the body is on point & maybe a bit overcarbed.

O - It's good and it's solid. I just think the rating is a bit biased towards where it's distributd.

4.08/5  rDev -2.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured into a regular, boring glass.

A: Brownish black with a one finger mocha head that lingered. Frothy lacing.

S: Like they say, the coffee is in your face, followed by charred malts and some vanilla.

T: Wake and smell the brewski! Excellent coffee notes with a charred oatmeal and malt backbone. Some caramel and vanilla added, too. Robust as hell. Semi sweet. Balanced. A charred, bitter finish that goes down easy.

M: Medium with medium, smokey carbonation.

O: I can see why this one's so popular. Rich and robust coffee wakes up the palette. Would love to try it on tap.

12 ounce can -> snifter

A - dark brown to black color. A vigorous pour yields a towering head of frothy foam <love alliteration>. retention is good and lacing is great.

S - Oh man!!! This beer is like sticking your head into a barrel of coffee beans. It's powerful and its tangible.

T - Caramel malts with a hint of vanilla up front. The finish is a massive coffee bomb with a hint of the oatmeal.

M - thin with a lot of carbonation. Big aftertaste.

O - Good People brews good beer. This is a good example. Good enough.

Served at Mello Mushroom in Tuscaloosa.

Deep dark brown to black with a cream to light tan head that lingers pretty well.

Smell is dark malts with a big wiff of coffee. Hint of vanilla in the mix as well.

Taste is nice toasted malts, dark chocolates, coffee and a bit of sweet vanilla. Char bitterness in the finish.

Mouthfeel is a little light for the style. Good carbonation.

Overall this was really good. Well worth a try.
