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.

Pours a dark brown with a tan head. Light and smooth not thick like many stouts. Tastes of malt and coffee. Not overpowering. Mediocre stout.

This is a tasty stout that looks every bit like a stout should an has all of the key stout attributes I look for in a top notch brew. The aroma is chocolate with some caramel and roasted chestnut. Appearance is closer to a dark brown with a ruby hue to it. Holding it up to the light yields very little coming through the glass. This is a deep color that starts with a fizzy brownish white head which dissipates fast and leaves only faint lacing. All this leads to the best part. Taste. This stout holds up very well to others I’ve enjoyed. It’s got a bittersweet dark chocolaty flavor that hits your mouth followed by hints of caramel and roasted chestnut. It reminded me of the taste you get from a top notch maduro cigar and leads to a similarly sweet finish with a slightly salty aftertaste that doesn’t upset the balance you get from each sip. Overall it’s a very tasty winner from New Glarus, and one I will keep drinking in the future. 12 oz bottle from Woodman’s (Oak Creek, WI). Pours a rich blackish hue, a roasty blackish brown, near opaque body with a touch of ruby glow. A frothy tannish head that dies to a film, laces small as it dies to a spotty ring. Aromas are roast and toast, earth, peanuts, touches of cocoa. A firm sweet and earthy feel, decent roast and toast, coffee, mellow cocoa. Initial is medium bodied, perhaps a bit lighter. Rich cocoa and toffee up front. Firm toast, roast, and coffee. Some gentle creamy sweetness, touches of dryness and roast catch hold into the middle and backend. Earth, dry, roasty coffee. Roasted malts, a light touch of ash. Finish is dry and roasty, earthy peanuts, touches of dark cacao. Nice beer, doesn’t get sweet. Instead, dry and roasty into the back. Enjoyable.

Pours dark black with about a finger of dark tan, slowly dissipating head. Strong nutty odor. Large hazelnut taste that fades into a burnt toast aftertaste. Pretty solid stout.

Style et résumé: Sweet Stout du Wisconsin.
Comment: Bouteille de 341ml merci Patrcik.
Description: Bière brune avec une mousse brune, rien de plus classique. Le nez est de chocolat, il y a beaucoup de chocolat, il y a aussi du café, des grains rôtis et ce qui me semble être du malt brun. La bouche est de café et chocolat. Les saveurs sont diluées, mince. La finale est aqueuse avec une amertume de torréfaction.
Note: 5/10

New Glarus n’épate toujours pas mes papilles. Avais-je des attentes qui étaient trop élevées? Peut-être ai-je manifesté trop d’enthousiasme envers cette brasserie ? Cette fois-ci, l’objet de la dégustation, la Road Slush Stout. De belle couleur brune acajou et surmontée d’une très petite tête mousseuse beige, cette gentille offrande s’ouvre sur des arômes maltés qui s’articulent autour de notes chocolatées (traces de caramel) et de notes de café/crème. Un nez pas malin mais un peu simple, très peu motivé à l’excitation et à l’étonnement. Au goût, c’est aussi la petite déception. Les malts développent des saveurs qui ne sont jamais profondes : un peu de café, du chocolat et des céréales grillées/rôties qui peuvent rappeler la chicorée. Pour la bouche, rien de bien vibrant quoique rien de bien catastrophique. Le corps est plutôt léger. Le pétillement est actif. La texture un peu trop mince (et même avec de l’avoine!). En finale, une petite réconciliation. Une amertume de torréfaction combinée à une expression feutrée des houblons qui cherchent à s’étendre dans le temps. Merci à Marheb pour l’opportunité. Prochaine étape? La Wisconsin et la Raspberry. En fait, je l’espère fortement!

Very good roasty malty dirty and a little chalky. A sour tactic twinge as well. I really liked this as a good sweet stout.

Amnesia87 (26) - Austin, Texas, USA - APR 5, 2012
12oz into Sniffer Pours a VERY dark brown (definitely brown and not black though). No real head or lacing to speak of. Smells of roast, coffee, chocolate and a bit of caramel. Feels great on the palate, well carbonated which complements the coffee/roast well. Very enjoyable.
