The definition of a "shelf beer" both good and bad. Nothing special and not overally great, however if you see it on tap over winter, it's a perfect order.

It is a very old stout, that goes down extremely smooth. Great balance of roasted malts and hops.

New Glarus Road Slush has a thick, beige head, that, unfortunately, dies away rather quickly and leaves little lacing. The aroma is of sweetness, brown bread, mild chocolate and coffee, and oats. Taste is the same, with an acidic char and bitterness, which seems to come more from the char rather than from any hop bittering. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy, and New Glarus Road Slush finishes wet, but with an underlying powdery aspect.
