COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hearty and satisfying, our Coffee Stout is the ultimate full-bodied brew. Wisconsin water, roasted malts, and imported hops are the natural ingredients we use to brew this bier. Then cold pressed organic coffee from Just Coffee Co-op is infused into the brew. Expect this bier to pour a deep creamy head over an ebony rich body. Notice the powerful malt bouquet balanced by a spectrum of extravagant flavor. Served at room temperature this Wisconsin Coffee Stout is guaranteed to warm even the coldest heart.

Near black; coffeeish yes, but not overly roasty. Hops and malts are understated, which detracts from the overall presentation of the beer. Still likeable, mind you, but timid.

OK, I’ll try to be objective even though I didn’t personally care for it. It really smells of coffee. And tastes of coffee. And the aftertaste is of coffee. Get the idea. I don’t like coffee at all. Anyway, I suppose others would like it.

Very dry and with roasted barley flavors. Nothing to complex in this one just an average stout.

Schroppfy (2360) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - MAY 6, 2002
UPDATED: NOV 12, 2003 This is edging in on world class in my mind. Deep, sharp roastiness and coffee flavor, with the perfect light-to-medium body to handle it. he body is indeed reminiscent of a dry stout (which I am not a fan of) but the flavors sit wonderfully on top of the perfectly carbonated body. A gem, and a true session stout. Outstanding. Thanks Kev.

VENOM (941) - Connecticut, USA - MAY 5, 2002
Dark mahogany with oats swimming around. Thin foamy tan head. Very light carbonation. There’s that spent grain aroma again. Some light roasted notes and husky grain aromas. Medium light body. Light roasted malts, very weak. Too airy as well. Light oat sweetness and minimal coffee aspects (from the malts you know). Finishes dry with a slightly more malted flavor. This is a decent Porter, at best, but a lame Stout and an even worse Coffee Stout. A pathetic marketing ploy if you ask me.

Alive with heady roasted flavours, this was a chief treat on a New Glarus pilgrimage I took with mwendt back in the day.

This is one of my favorite stouts. A pleasure to drink.

A real nice coffee flavored stout, we prefer it to the Fuel Cafe from Lakefront Brewing. Highly Recommended.

Whoa! Who built the Starbucks so close to the brewery? Sir, would you like another shot of espresso in your beer? Perhaps you’d care for a scone or a Danish to go with that? New Glarus is extending the limits of beer flavor here, but this seems kind of yuppyized or gimmicky to me. This is a dark brownish, malted stout, not too thick, with a very smooth and creamy coffee blend, and just a touch of sweetness, a quality beer that’s ultimately very thirst quenching. It’s the flavor that may leave some of us baffled for beer.

A nice interpretation of the dry stout style. Firmly in the Guinness tradition with the odd addition of coffee blended in. Not too strong, Like an infamous west coast example, but sill noticable. Still, not a style that I am wild about.
