Pours an almost black with a nice tan head. Bought from IGA in Washburn might be a little old because the coffee takes the back seat to the dark fruit flavors.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle purchased from Woodmans in Kenosha, WI. I’m not sure if I was late in the season in getting this, but the coffee seems to be fairly muted here. Still, New Glarus have here a coffee stout that fits right in with their malt and flavor forward style. This stout will not knock you out for the day/evening and would be great with a Sunday roast dinner.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Opaque black, dark-brown, small tan head. Bitter dark-roasted coffee beans, slight dark-chocolate notes. Earthy. Some caramel, molasses notes. Relatively subtle nose. Tastes predominantly bitter, some sourness from the roasted malt flavors, hints of sweetness throughout. Thicker mouthfeel, some oiliness, alcohol is very upfront. Big beer, reasonably balanced, pleasant.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The appearance is an opaque dark brown with a small tan head, and the aroma is coffee, roasted malts, and caramel malts. The taste is slightly sweet, slightly umami, slightly bitter, and a touch sour; the palate fuses a nearly oily texture, medium body, malty finish, and a soft carbonation.
