This beer is a good stand for a coffe stout. The aroma of the coffee clears the nostrils for the next sense of the body to receive its blessings. The taste makes the pallet wake up like getting up for a nice weekend out with friends. A wonderful and crisp great taste in coffee. The nodes change as it reaches room temperature. More coffee taste with a smooth stout taste. Good choice to try if in the area on tap.

Poured from a 12 oz can into a clear glass tulip. Canned on 02/09/17 on bottom edge of can.

A: Very dark brown with 1-finger of light beige big-bubbled head with average retention but sparse lacing.

S: Lots of caramel and dark malty flavor mix with black coffee aroma -- a lot like caramel coated raisins

T: Flavor is very enjoyable with a good balance of semisweet chocolate, coffee, caramel, and raisin character. Low bitterness with just a touch of roasty edge to the finish.

M: Soft and creamy, lowish carbonation with medium body

O: GP Coffee Oatmeal Stout is solid example of the genre with no frills and just solid execution of a frequently slap-dash style offering by other breweries.

L- Pours a very dark beer with a small head that hugs the sides of the wall. Looks like a chilled dark roast coffee.
S- Smooth dark roast, cream, pungent toasted aroma from the toasted hops, I mean pungent in a good way.
T- Bitterness from the hops, toasted roasted hops as well; this beer is exactly what it says it is. It tastes like a mellow dark cup of Joe.
F- A bit creamy and crisp.
O- This beer is exactly what it needs to be. A coffee stout. Great beer to have, it's actually exactly what it says it is for a change. If you have it in your area, give it a try.

Poured from a can into a pint glass. Pretty dark, held up to a light you can just see some coming through the sides. Thin tan head. I didn't pick up much of anything in the smell deptartment. Taste seemed lacking too. Maybe weak, cold coffee. Felt a little bubbly or carbonated kinda like a lager. Wasn't a bad beer, I was just expecting more since it had such a high score.

Look- the best part, deep, dark, black with a bubbles steaming up the sides.

Smell- it could be me, but I smell nothing from this stout. Very weak. Very faint hints of cold brew coffee

Taste- again, the flavor profiles don't jump off the tongue, it taste like weak iced coffee

Feel- it coats the mouth oily, initially but fades almost instantly. No burn or kick in the aftertaste.

Overall- the best world that comes to mind is flimsy. It has no punch at all. I've tasted many better oatmeal, coffee stouts. Sorry, probably won't get this one again
