A - Opaque cola color with a healthy, creamy, smooth, meringue-like, light cafe white color. Great retention leaving a nice lacing.

S - Plenty of nice roasted coffee and milk chocolate. Mocha and malt chocolate aromas along with a touch of nuttiness. Faint sweetness along with the earthiness. Nice aroma.

T - Starts with some milk chocolate and earthy/nutty flavors. Gives way to some roasted coffee and some dark chocolate. Slight creamy and caramel sweetness. Roasted flavor lasts throughout giving way to a slight astringent flavor on the finish. Some bitter roasted flavors on the finish with an underlying sweetness.

M - Medium to light body. Average, maybe slightly less than average, carbonation. Not quite as smooth and creamy as other oatmeal stouts but it does have these characteristics.

D - Nice mix of bitter/roasted flavors and sweetness. Easy to drink sweeter stout. Good balance and the beer just disappeared from the glass.

Notes: Nice oatmeal stout. It lacks a bit of the classical body you expect and the flavor falls a bit short of the aroma, but it's a nice balanced Oatmeal Stout that's easy to drink. Enjoyable but not amazing.

A lighter shade of black with ample 1.5" of head on it, beige in color, kinda looser flimsier bubbles than most stouts. Aroma, a little fruity for a stout, this seemed different, but nice. Of course there was adequate roasting, but it came with that minor fruity bitterness.

Taste, solid, good roast, yet allowing the oatmeal to give it a smoothness. Easy to drink, ibu's were pretty high given its an oatmeal stout. Dry chocolate malt presence. Even though there was that fruity undercurrent in the nose, its also largely muted in the taste, but still existant enough to be tasted.

What appeared to be a simple run of the mill stout actually has some neat nuances running through it, I recommend you take a little extra time when drinking this one, letting it warm a little, it will continue to grow on you. Another solid New Glarus effort.
