A - Pitch black, light tan head with very little staying power and lacing.

S - Rich caramel and coffee hints of chocolate.

T/M - More coffee than the nose, but some harsh roast character also comes out from a relatively dry finish.

O - A bit one note, and too dry for my likes. A rare New Glarus miss for me.

Poured from bottle into tulip snifter, served near (but not at) room temperature.

This stout pours a deep, opaque sienna. The head is beige and creamy; quite enticing. Coats the inside of the glass.

Smells faintly of coffee, as well as caramelized malts. Not as deep and rich of a smell as the appearance might suggest.

Tastes stronger than it smells. The coffee notes really come through, though not in an overpowering manner. Thick mouth feel. Coats the mouth the same way it does the glass.

Finishes fairly clean, with the coffee lingering only slightly.

Overall, this is an excellent beer. It combines excellent balance with an understated sophistication. I rate it as comparable to Founders Breakfast Stout, though the two are quite distinct.
