Pours a thick, off-tan head that settles away with a bit of lacing. Huge coffee aroma; floral and acidic. Black. Starts tart, acidic, and floral; mainly coffee right up front. Moves into a nice roasted malt middle, just a touch of hops, and the finish moves back into coffee. As it lingers, the roasted malt subsides, and hop bitterness is the only thing left.

I like this one alot because it's a great mix of coffee and stout. The coffee is assertive, but paired masterfully with the roasted malt; the transition between the coffee and the malt is so seamless. Just a great, silken mouthfeel, too.
Honestly, I'll take this over Founder's Breakfast Stout; WAY more balanced.

12oz bottle poured into a Sprecher snifter glass

Appearance- Jet black in color with a finger of kahki heads that dissipates into a small ring that leaves minimal lacing.

Smell- Tons of black coffee with a hint a sweet malt.

Taste- All black coffee. It kind of makes me sad that there is no sweet or bitter sweetness to balance out the black coffee taste.

Mouthfeel- Kind of light, drinks more like a porter with a good amount of carbonation.

Overall- Definitly a 1 dimensional beer that lacks balance and complexity.

New Glarus Coffee Stout

Poured from 12 ounce bottle into accompanying NG glassware. Served slightly chilled...

A) Very dark brown to black in color. A finger of nice milkshake head. Excellent retention and ample lacing.

S) Roasted malt and a good amount of fresh ground coffee.

T) The taste is very similar to the aroma, but there's definitely a touch of hops in there as well. Light coffee aftertaste.

M) I personally didn't find it as full-bodied as advertised. Perhaps just a little bit too much carbonation, but that's a minor concern. Pretty smooth and easy drinking.

O) This is a fantastic coffee stout, and you certainly can't beat the price of a six pack. Glad to recommend this beer.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

Pours an opaque brown with minimal amber and garnet highlights and a half inch foamy tan head that leaves minimal lacing.

Roast malt, nuts, coffee, and chocolate form the initial aroma. Dark cherries become evident as it warms.

The flavor follows suit, with roast malt, coffee, and chocolate ending fairly nutty and a touch dry and acrid. Cereal grain notes add intrigue.

Body is moderate, with carbonation a touch higher than expected, lifting the rich flavor from the palate. There's noticeable alcohol warmth.

Better than most coffee stouts. Not overly acrid, and good chocolatey flavor.

Dark brown with a tall head of rocky dark khaki foam. Nice retention.

Complex smell of caramel, chocolate, smoke and coffee.

The taste is wonderful, but does lack in the coffee department. Chocolatey, lightly roasty, smoke, light coffee, some vanilla and a hint of alcohol. Has to be the most complex and flavorful american stout I've had.

Medium bodied, soft and smooth carbonation.

Drinks very easily and chock full of flavor. I wish more of the coffee was here, but the overall product is still wonderful.
