Had this on tap at The J. Clyde last night listed as the Oatmeal Stout (no coffee in the name but I figured that was for menu size reasons). Served up in your standard, everyday, normal-ass pint glass.

A: Pours a pretty nice black color that turns a bit brown when held to the light, but not much of a change with very little light getting through this brew. The head was a nice mocha color that had some really nice retention, standing its ground and never really going away. The lacing was thick and plentiful on the glass. Better than I expected from the upstart, new brewery of Alabama.

S: Smell very nice. Had a lot of nice oatmeal scents lingering with some nice, sweet, chocolate malts. There was a touch of coffee and lactose coming out as well. Slight presence of some piney hops coming out too. Not too bad.

T: Taste, once again, quite nice. The oatmeal is rich bountiful. The malts are chocolatey with a touch of caramel. Sweet but not pigeon holding it as a dessert brew. The hops were made very much aware of with a pretty big pine presence that has a bittering quality to it, further keeping this in the oversweet dessert category of brews. Not the most complex flavors, but they are all balanced pretty well.

M: Medium in body which seems to be a bit thin unfortunately. It does still have a nice creaminess to it which makes it nice and slick. The carbonation level is on point, and it really does make for a smooth drinking experience. ABV is of course not an issue at all. Aftertaste is mostly just a pine resin/bitter note.

D: Well the only negative thing I can say about this beer is that the mouthfeel could be a bit heavier in this stout. Still, that helps this beer in the drinkability category because it doesn't sit heavy at all and is one of the easiest drinking stouts I have ever encountered. Its simple, but still damned tasty and enjoyable. A good job goes out to the folks at Good People. Hopefully they keep it up and keep making some damn good brew.
