Almost no head, jet black, well carbonated, toasty notes on the nose, good malt backbone, a bit of chocolate, thin, nice even toasty finish.

Road slush pours black with a big lacing head. There is a big rich malty aroma, with sweet notes. The taste has a hint of smoke and a hing of chocolate, lots of sweet lactose flavors. A little watery, but still nice flavors. Overall its a very solid stout, not fancy, just straight forward.

New Glarus is known for creating exceptional beers. Not because they are different, or extreme, but because they are the perfect embodiment of the corresponding beer style. Road Slush is no exception.

People will say that Guinness is a great stout to familiarize yourself with the style. That's good advice, but if you live in Wisconsin and want to drink dark beer, reach for a Road Slush.

This beer pours a medium dark brown, and smells of light roasted malts and a slight sugary sweetness. The beer has a great amount of body and mouthfeel attached to it as well.

The stout flavors of robust malts, roasted barley, and a hint of black coffee are prevalent and perfectly balanced. The beer is lightly hopped and allows for a finish of a light dark chocolate flavor.

My local grocery store sold these individually and my only regret is that I bought one instead of six.
