Deep brown in color with a half inch of creamy brown head. Aroma is of oatmeal and coffee. Heavy, thick lacing. I’m tasting a coffee forward oatmeal stout. The bitterness of the coffee lingers a bit. The mouth is silky smooth from the oatmeal.

12 oz can purchased in Huntsville, AL in a mix-a-six. Poured into Calusa mini snifter.

Deep colors with brown edging and dark chocolate brown body. Head is fuzzy and creamy at the same time, 1 finger tall, with lots of frothy lacing up the glass.

Aromas are mainly of sulphur and coffee grounds. Slight pale chocolate and roast malts.

Flavor is heavy on the coffee, with a really pleasant chocolate roastiness. Burnt brownie ends, chocolate pudding, dark burnt coffee, and fruity coffee bean flavors all combine. Not bad!

Feel is acidic and carbonated, with a really interesting puckering fruit acidity filling the whole mouth.

Overall, a really interesting and delicious Coffee Stout. Glad I have more cans to enjoy.

I had this one on tap at the Brewery. It was served in a 16 oz glass.

The beer is a dark brown with a decent beige head.

The nose is of coffee, some dark fruit and something sweet like brown sugar.

I liked this one. The coffee was evident but not overpowering. The oatmeal adds a nice sweetness that balances the bitterness from the coffee and the roasted malts.

The mouth is slick with midlevel carbonation. I would like to see it thicker but the medium mouth made it easy to have a couple.

Just a really nice, well-made beer.

I think this is the second-best offering from Good People behind their Juco IPA. Both the coffee and oatmeal come through. Color and feel is typical of the style. They do well to mass produce this.

Bought in a six pack of 12 ounce cans. Delivered to my fridge in a 2008 Hyundai Santa Fe and poured one by one directly into my mouth.

This is probably the most drinkable stout out there. The flavor definitely has coffee undertones but the coffee flavor doesn't overwhelm the pallet. It's not too sweet and not too dry - just right. The mouthfeel is much lighter than you might expect from something that uses the combination of words "coffee", "oatmeal", and "stout", but the word "good" is on the can, too, so there's that. I have to say that this is my go-to beer. I really love it.

Good People tend to overfill their cans. The resulting spills have put coffee stains on all of my wife beaters. By wife beater I am referring to my sleeveless t-shirts, not my collection of abusive husbands. They're still mint.

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.
