3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very dark brown hue with a frothy tanm head and good lace. Semi-sweet chocolate, french roast coffee, burnt malts, floral hops, and apple nose. Not a coffee tasting as the stouts that use real java in the brew, this one is more sublime in nature. Very lively mouthfeel keep it palate from being overwhelmed by the bitterness of the burnt malts and a twangy smoky finish. Too thin-bodied and watery IMO with a lingering bitterness. A average coffee stout which still means that it's an above average brew!

Loved the way it poured, low carbonation, dark brew. First taste and I was hooked, tasted the coffee in the aftertaste. Had a hard time having enough patience to let this one warm to room temp. It was worth the wait.

This stout was acquired in trade with Bigbadbear63, he is the Shizat!
Oh mama, Now you speakha Me language!! This stout pours a deep jet-black body with a immense caramel colored head. The aroma is, caramel, toffee, chocolate, French roast, Woo, the flavor-flav is a robust and roasted chocolate malt and cream…much sweeter than I had anticipated… I actually pick up more chocalate than I do coffee, although it is evident, I even find a trace of vanilla.
The palate is like a thin chocolate moose, a bit skinny, if this stout had more texture it would be intensely sublime.

Very dark and thick brew. Minimal carbonation. Actually tasted better after warming a bit. Very bitter aftertaste.

Hey this was allright. My roomates hail from the lovely state of Wisconsin and apparently the natives think this is a horrible brewery, which my roomates consider a travesty. Thick coffe presence, a very nice robust palate and decent body behind it. Different from many coffee stouts, but not different enough to be exported country-wide.

My first New Glarus brew is pleasant, but not a standout brew in any way. Strong coffee aroma emanates from the dark brown, white/tan-headed body. Flavor is much the same: nice roasted barley and coffee. Way too thin to be considered excellent, but solid nonetheless.

Flavorful basic stout. Not much to say, for I have been drinking Bell's today. Light coffee and chocolate. Pretty good, I should say.

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!
