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

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.
