poured 12oz bottle into chalice.

A - Black coffee with a light 1 finger mocha head. Normal retention with almost no lacing.

S - Roasted malts with a pleasant coffee aroma. Some chocolate with cream and sugar.

T - Roasted malts with coffee, chocolate, cream and some sugar.

M - Lighter body, which is okay for this stout. It is easy to drink and has nice carbonation.

O - Simple, delicious, and a great price. When you want a lighter, tasty coffee stout, this one hits the spot.

12oz bottle poured into tulip.

A: Pours black with medium tan-colored head.

S: Coffee mostly. Sweet, with perhaps a touch of chocolate.

T: Pretty simple. Burnt coffee and some roastiness. Slightly tart finish.

M: As far as stouts go, the body feels quite thin. There seems to be a little too much carbonation.

O: Underwhelmed by this one. The smell/taste lack complexity and the body is too thin.

12 oz bottle into glass pours a darker brown from the bottle but reaches a nice opaque dark brownish black in the glass with substantial lacing.

Smells of grains and light malts and milked coffee.

Sugared and lightly roasted coffee with just a bit of bitterness and nice bean presence on the finish. Lighter bodied though creamy and accessible.

Another very well made beer from New Glarus. Those looking for a huge stout or a big drinking beer should look elsewhere. Those looking for a ridiculously drinkable beer with a very pleasant coffee presence that just encourages multiple beers in a single sitting should seek this out. In no ways an extreme or life changing beer, but a rapidly vanishing six pack tells me I'm digging this.

*please drink this near room temperature where this beer really shines*
