Review from BeerAdvocate Magazine Issue #39 (Apr 2010):

New Glarus ages the beer in oak to bring on some spontaneous fermentation.

Garnet hue off of a very deep brown color, pretty light looking for a Stout, yet the head flaunts it like any other Stout. Pours a decent-size head that doesn't retain much, but it sticks around for the duration. Big cherry-juice aroma, mild malt and even milder roasted notes in the nose. Moderate body, a little thin with a slick and smooth mouthfeel. Lots of cherry juice sweetness to deal with; taste buds are left waiting for any real Stout-like roasted flavor. Hops are on mute with very little bitterness or flavor. Cherry flavor is domi- nant and sweet from start to finish.

Where is the Stout? There is a glimpse of a dark beer within, but nothing more. We know this was their intention, but neither the oak nor the spontaneous fermentation make any real appearance. Not half bad, but the cherry and weak Stout character have no real depth and simply make a sweet ale.
