12 oz bottle traded from GreenBayBA!

Nice dark black pour with a thin beige finger of head in my mini snifter. It recedes quite quickly to a thin ring.

Aroma is kind of faint but has some old wood/barn, ground coffee, and some chocolate hidden in the background somewhere.

Flavor is definitely your basic coffee stout. Oat and roast barley lead the way, with some slightly acidic and peppery coffee, yielding only faint fruity notes, suggestions of coconut, and very very faint milk chocolate.

Feel is quite highly carbonated which fits the beer's profile, but I would have preferred a silky presence to fit perhaps some more slight chocolate smoothness.

Overall, for New Glarus it's fairly average, but it's still a solid beer from a solid brewery. As far as six packs go, pick one up, but don't go crazy on a haul of it if you're stopping by Wisconsin.

Strong taste and smell of dark coffee. Could replace your morning cup of Joe with this if you wanted to. Highly recommend.

Ehh...probably the first NG beer I haven't liked. Tastes like a mediocre home-brew. Here goes:

A: Best thing about the beer. Beautiful big, white head. Great lacing. Also pours a beautiful, dark black.

S: Ermmm...Well, there is some coffee and chocolate, but unfortunately these flavors are masked by a musty, home-brew-like scent - probably from the yeast. I've noticed that other NG beers had this off-smell, but it's no where near as pungent in those beers as it is in this one. Not my cup of tea.

T: Follows the nose, and this is not a good thing. Some coffee, but mostly musty home-brew flavors (probably from the yeast). Not good.

F: Great. Nice and crisp.

O: Not good.

One sip made me say "wow" out loud, and in earnest. If the perfect appearance of black coffee hadn't already been nailed, I certainly got it on the first touch to my lips. Perfectly roasty and smoky, with enough malty sweetness to keep the coffee from being overwhelming. Just a beautiful stout, but not quite perfect. Compared to the taste, the smell is nothing special and really gets too much of the barnyardy coffee notes.

This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a dark brown close to black color. Thin quarter white to off white foamy head that dissipated within less than forty five seconds. Lacing, yeah, I guess that was there, uh...kinda and in a messy sort of way (why the hell is every beer I’m having tonight has a messy sort of lacing?), sorry for the stupid disclaimer. The smell had a full roasted coffee bean conglomerated aspect of leading to a light dark chocolate and then a light milk chocolate. Both seem to stay subdued enough to not overdo anything whatsoever. The taste was roasty and sweet with a super nice bittering coffee underneath. On the palate, this one sat right at a medium on the body. The carbonation was there, but honestly not bad for the style and for me. There’s a light harshness that allows a light creaminess to pervade lightly on through and onto my tongue. Overall, I say this was a good American Stout that I would have again if I could get it.
