Bottle. Pours brown with little head. It pours light and thin for a stout. Aroma is rich with malt and chocolate. Very inviting. Taste is super smooth upfront and lasts throughout. Very malty and thicker than it poured, but not thick either. Very well done.

New Glarus nails it again. Creamy mouthfeel, but it’s backed up by a complex malty body and plenty of hops to keep it honest. Chocolate, toast, and oatmeal. Not at all heavy. Typical for NG, they take a beer style, and bring maximum flavor without going over the top in any aspect. An excellent stout.

murky dark brown, thin cream head with large bubbles ring after moments. Nose is dusty cocoa and oatmeal, very grainy. Lightly medicinal flavor, anise, cocoa finish. Attenuated, controlled.

Well, after a long weekend of beer sampling, the only glassware I had left was a kolsch, but I figured I’d use it anyway. This is an attractive beer, dark, almost black, off white head. Aroma of coffee and buttered toast, like a diner during breakfast. Taste is chocolate and roasted malts. Tasty. Nice stout.

Bottle. Pours a dark brown with white head. Sweet, roasted, malty, oatmeal, lactose sweetness aromas. Nice oatmeal, creamy, roasted flavor. More of a medium-bodied oatmeal stout, not as heavy as some.

Bottle. Pours a very dark brown with a pretty big off-white head. Aroma is coffee, chocolate, caramel. Taste is nicely sweet with some roasted bitterness, pretty mild overall but not bland or dull. Finish is lightly dry. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, very smooth.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours deep brown with a thin white head that retains well wirh thin lacing. Not getting much from the nose, a bit of coffee and roasted grain. Tastes like a typical porter. Espresso, roasted grain and a touch of hops frame the taste profile. Nothing spectacular but not bad at all.

Thanks to iNBe. Smooth slippery feeling stout. Strong roasted aroma that sometimes had a slightly odd smell to it. Over all this was quite good with some quirks. Serving: Bottle

6/17/12. 12oz bottle shared by a dude in the Brandy Zhukov line. Mellow roasty aroma with touches of chocolate. Nice mellow chocolate and hints of coffee in the flavor. Not bad.
