Very good sweet stout, thanks Tannertavernboys or Eric. Very dark and smooth, moderate head that quickly dissipates. Light to medium body for a sweet stout. Smooth roast flavors and yes coffee. Taste alot like coffee with cream and sugar. Mildly dry finish, I enjoyed this one!

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Color is a deep, deep brown, nearly black, with a thin tannish head of creamy foam that faded fast, leaves some light lacy strings. Smell is roasted malt with a hint of coffee, soft nose. Taste is mild roasted malt with a touch of coffee with a pleasing slight bittering coffee bean finish that shows up late. Its a bit flat and thin, could be bolder and heavier in both flavor and body. Don't get me wrong, its still a very drinkable stout, a touch above most. I enjoyed it enough to fulfill my coffee/stout craze.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Bottle 6/24 @brewery): Cola body with nice brown head. Aroma is straight-on coffee, moderately sweet, some caramel. Taste is solid coffee, medium sweet, with malty coffee bitterness at the back. Medium full body. Delicious.
(draft 6/23 @Bodega's in La Crosse, WI): Some beige head with dark brown body. Aroma is faint coffee, mild sweet, roasty. Taste is light sweet and coffee, with a nice coffee aftertaste significantly sweeter than the rest of the beer. Nice medium body, lightly carbonated. (5/4/7/4/14)

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: MAY 14, 2004 Aroma of chocolate and coffee. Black with a large tan head. This one had the flavor of a slightly better than average oatmeal stout. The coffee taste was barely noticeable. Not bad, but disappointing for NG.

Slight tan head, mild coffee aroma - body is somewhat thin - flavor has a good amount of coffee in the mix, but it's not all that complex - "spectrum of flavor" it most certainly does not have - however, it is a pretty well-made stout - a so-so effort that I wouldn't mind drinking again sometime.

Coffee, yes, a lot, but a bit thin-bodied for my taste. Coffee in the finish, and not a whole lot else. Some malts, roasty. Seems somewhat out of balanced, as the carbonation is a little much for a stout.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very dark beer with only hints of red around the edges with an attractive brown head. I really didn't get an awful lot of coffee in this beer. It was sweet with some roast bitterness, and was an okay stout, but I expected better.

Now this is a coffee stout. Nice dark color with a creamy tan head. Coffee is predominant throughout, if you do not like coffee, the taste, acidity, or bitterness than stay away from this beer as it has it all and then some. Very thick and tasty, like tasting that fresh roasted smell in the morning and putting it in a bottle. Had with Dogfish's Chicory stout and it blew it out of the water much like Chief Brody did to the shark at the end of Jaws. No contest New Glarus wins.
