Another solid brew from New Glarus. Poured from 12 oz. bottle into a snifter. Some good carbonation, but produced a tad more than a wisp of a head. Not super dark. Looks more like a porter than a stout. Dark brown...like a deep dark brown ale. Roasted coffee and a nice sweet note of chocolate. Flavor was very good. Cocoa like, roasted malts, and very smooth. I don't mind making my way through this kind of road slush -indoors!

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a tall New Glarus Signature Pilsner Glass.

Appearance: Pours a dark blackish brown with a hint of ruby. Moderate amount of bubbles and a solid one finger of beige head which settles into a thin creamy layer.

Smell: A toasty and roasty malt forward aroma with hints of chocolate, oatmeal, and caramel. Dark roasted barley malt with hints of chocolate, oatmeal, caramel, and toast along with some hints of coffee, nuts, biscuit, cream, and yeast. Sweet hints of brown sugar. Subtle hints of earthy hops. A very solid toasty smell.

Taste: Like it smells, a nicely toasty and roasty dark malt driven taste with good notes of chocolate, oatmeal, and caramel. Upfront roasted malt with notes of dark chocolate, oatmeal, toast, and caramel as well as some coffee, biscuit, nuts, and yeast. Sweet notes of cream, milk, and brown sugar. Backing notes of earthy hops. A very good taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Very creamy and smooth with a fairly drying finish.

Overall: A very good version of an Oatmeal Stout. Good dark malt and oat flavors with a nice creamy body.

Very tasty and easy drinking. Not as heavy of a mouth feel as expected from a stout but that only adds to the ease that they go down.

Received as an extra with a trade from LegitCraftBeer so thank you very much for this nice beer.
A very nice looking beer. Pours a very dark brown. Nice 2 inch head that quickly died down leaving behind heavy lacing. Looks like how I want my beer to look.
Smell was nice had a nice roasted scent to it with a hint of chocolate.
Good taste with the chocolate up front and the roasted oatmeal seemed to linger on my tongue for quite sometime.
I liked this beer I had Velvet Merkin last week and I prefer the Road Slush.

Nice thin black pour with a big fluffy head. Roasted mild coffee aroma with good hint of chocolate. Smooth velvety mouthfeel. Sweet roasted taste with plenty of cocoa flavor. Really good.

This pours a dark brown color with a slight head. The aroma is sweet and malty. The taste is nice and complex with molasses, toasted oats, and hints of coffee. This is a smooth, well-balanced stout that really delivers. The after taste is a little bitter with a lingering oat flavor.

Pours dark brown to black. Smell is toasty and a little creamy. Taste follows and it is really nice. For me, this is a perfect session stout. I could drink 4-5 of these in a sitting. I highly recommend this. New Glarus does it again!
