Once again I would like to state my eternal gratitude to Joe and Cheryl Schmit for bringing me back a mixed six-pack sampler of New Glarus beers. I am thoroughly enjoying them.
A: Pours a deep, dark brown - so deep that only the edges give a hint of its not completely black color. No light passes through the center of the glass. Heck, it barely passes through the edges. Pouring produced a fingers worth of tan head that dissipated but still laced through out the event.
S: Once it got up to the proper temperature, in addition to the hearty malt/chocolate aroma of a good stout this has an additional shot of robust coffee.
T: To say that the taste follows the smell would be accurate but would feel like an understatement. The taste is incredible. Roasted malts, chocolate, rich coffee all in balance. A hint of sweetness - perhaps vanilla - to round it off. Very nice!
M: Balanced carbonation compliments the medium to heavy body well.
D: Very drinkable. And at only 5.75% ABV I find myself wishing I had more than one bottle of this to enjoy. It would be easy to drink more than one of these at a sitting but I am happy with savoring just one. I allowed this to run the gambit from cold where the flavors just start to come out to about 50 degrees where the senses revel in the complexities. This is a very good beer. Highly recommended.
