COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This dark ale is a hearty and satisfying reward for those of us who embrace the frozen tundra. Uncut oatmeal fresh from Chilton, Wisconsin gives this Stout a "sink into it" smoothness that slides you into its depth. Handcrafted English Chocolate malt and Wisconsin Victory malt combine to balance this robust ale. Expect this ale to pour a luxurious rich head over a rich black ruby body. The powerful malt bouquet will greet you as you tip this silky smoothness from your glass. Our Oatmeal Stout is handcrafted in the time-honored traditions. Serve just above room temperature and relax -- road construction season will soon return.

These guys donít make a lot of mistakes. A really nice stout. Pours a chestnut brown with creamy off white head. Aromas are nice sweet milk chocolate with coffee and red berry notes. Nice dry finish. Coffee and bitter chocolate flavors. Good stuff.

Nice aroma of sweet and dark chocolate, raisin, and hints of vanilla. Nice ebony color with a thick tan head. Sweet roasted malt dominates initially. More faint in flavor than aroma. Bitter chocolate next, and finishes with a nice balance of sweet and bitter, and with some dryness. Mouth feel is a bit watery. O.k.

One of the only good thing about being in WI in late January..a smooth New Glarus stout. Beautiful dark ruby brown with a lasting creamy khaki head. Roasty and chocolatey malts. Not overly roasty thankfully. Just enough bitterness for balance and a perfect amount of sweetness. Smooth medium body. Fantastic malty character all around. Full of aroma and flavor and still super drinkable. Exactly what this day needed.

A nice roasted flavor with hints of chocolate. There are nice undertones of coffee that blend nicely with the hops.

A roasted and chocolate aroma. Medium bodied and very drinkable. A more complex malt profile than most.

Deep brown with nice frothy head. Great aroma, I even noticed it after opening the bottle while searching for a glass. Aroma is mild roasted coffee and sweet chocolate. Taste is robust and roasty with a sweet chocolatey finish. Smooth and full bodied. This was very good going to be one of my go to stouts ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nice thin black pour with a big fluffy head. Roasted mild coffee aroma with good hint of chocolate. Smooth velvety mouthfeel. Sweet roasted taste with plenty of cocoa flavor. Really good.

This pours a dark brown color with a slight head. The aroma is sweet and malty. The taste is nice and complex with molasses, toasted oats, and hints of coffee. This is a smooth, well-balanced stout that really delivers. The after taste is a little bitter with a lingering oat flavor.

"a budget SS Oatmeal Stout clone! Holy crap...I donít know that i can tell the two apart. they nailed it...so hereís my review for Sam Smiths...only difference is a half point lower for feel. "still the benchmark as far as Oatmeal Stouts are concerned. Iím glad SS no longer does the clear glass bottles...it was hit or miss whether or not your beer would be spoiled, but now itís always great. Perfect nose, great smooth mouthfeel, if a little thin. Roasted everything, highly drinkable." "
