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 Octane Coffee Roasters here in Birmingham, AL.

Canned in August, poured to mason drinking jar in October.
L: So dark. Dark cocoa head, big.
S: Dark roasted coffee and dark chocolate with a floral hop in the background. Inviting. A smidge of rich fruitcake too. Not very loud. I would like it to be more aromatic.
T: Oh my! This is so good! Very flavorful. Matches the nose but in a more present and dominant way. Deep. Rich. Getting the coffee in the aftertaste.
F: Smooth, creamy and stout. It's what it should be. Medium to full bodied but I could imagine it being enjoyed by anyone. Nice thickness.
O: Bought a pint of this on tap a while back and it wasn't good. I must have gotten a stale pour because this can is good! Really good. Would love to see an Imperial version! Thanks to the good people at Good People for making the end of this Friday a great one. This beer is now a staple that I will highly recommend.

Look - gently poured, pours black with a thin light tan head like a latte. Looks inviting.
Smell- roasted coffee, dark malt, light chocolate. Has a very fresh smell unlike some other coffee stouts I've had that smell extract like Or of stale day old coffee.
Taste- upfront coffee notes as it should. A very nice natural coffee flavor. Bitter in the middle with the hops coming through towards the end. The bitterness falls off towards the end which I appreciate. It leaves me wanting to go back for another sip/swig! I think that is the first 5 I have rated for taste!
Feel- the mouthfeel is lighter than I expected for an oatmeal stout. Not slippery or oily. Carbonation is pronounced and keeps the beer alive and kicking throughout my tasting experience. Might be too much if drunk in the the can but I have not tried one in the can yet.
Overall- my wife brought me this back to Texas from Alabama tonight (isn't she nice!). This is a solid offering from this brewery and she brought another beer to try from Good People (IPA I believe) that I look forward to trying. I could drink several of these easily. I think I will!

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.
