Pours brown with a fizzy white head. Pleasant taste and nice dry finish, however, very thin with prickly carbonation. Not at all rich or creamy.

12 oz. bottle, with no apparent bottled on date present. Acquired some of this from my mother on a recent trip to Wisconsin. My first encounter with this offering, their oatmeal stout.

Poured into a clear balloon snifter.

A - It pours a dark chocolatey brown; just a shade away from opaque in the glass with a hint of ruby showing through when held to the sunlight. One finger of khaki-cream colored head that thins to a ring. Moderate lacing left behind.

S - The aroma is pretty standard - lots of deep dark malt roastiness, bitter baking chocolate, some char, notes of cola, notes of smoke, cream, vanilla. The liquid smoke / ash aspect of the beer is a bit unattractive.

T - Taste brings in more of the same - char / roast / liquid smoke, dark malt roast, and some unsweetened bitter baking chocolate, vanilla, & cream.

M - The feel is smooth, creamy, but not nearly as silky as expected. Moderate carbonation.

Overall, an average, middle-of-the-road offering from New Glarus, though it is flavorful and very drinkable. Not likely something I would seek out from them again though.

Appearance: pours a brown with hints of both red and black. opaque due to the dark color. a two or so finger head forms and has pretty good retention and just a small lacing.

Smell: notes of chocolate, oatmeal, some roastiness. and light fruity esters.

Taste: opens up with chocolate covered oatmeal. nice and soft, finally giving way to a slight roasted malt character. back end has hints of fruity esters and earthy hops.

Mouthfeel: light and creamy. almost watery at times. some lingering bitterness.

Overall: a nice and drinkable light stout. good flavor and moderately complex. somehow it leaves me wanting just a little bit more, mostly in terms of roasted notes and mouthfeel.
