Beer added by: Bonhoeffer on 10-10-2008

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.

Pours a deep, dark black with a small, creamy tan head. Opaque and looks a little thin.Smells pretty good. a little coffee aroma but well balanced with bitter chocolate hints. first sip and I was hooked. Great balance of roasted malts and coffee. General consensus is this is as close as Terrapin Wake n Bake as an Alabamian can purchase inside state lines. Mouthfeel is a little thin but very enjoyable. If you like coffee stouts, you could drink this all night. Great beer while sitting under the heaters on an unusually cold Alabama October night. Seek this out, no telling how long it will last. Echoing some sentiment...hopefully this will become a staple in the Good People stable. (687 characters)

What can you say about a coffee oatmeal stout?

The smell: first a confession. I don't normally drink coffee, because most coffees are coarse and harsh tasting. However, the nose on this baby is coffee, coffee, glorious coffee! The rich, warm, dark brown smell has to be smelled to be believed!

Taste: this is the reason why I drink coffee on occasion... the taste is rich, smooth, lightly effervescent on the tongue, lively, and bright.

Mouthfeel: the initial coarse mouthfeel on first serving disappears into a gorgeous rich creaminess as it reaches a pleasant cellar temperature.

Appearance: not *quite* black.. hints of very dark woody brown lurk under the blackness.

A devastating combination with pumpkin pie, and I am looking forward to trying it with cheesecake.

If you like coffee, or you like stouts... try this beer. Outstandingly good. (852 characters)

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. (805 characters)
