2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 12/20
A: The pour is sort of light for a stout, actually, it’s very light for a stout. Somewhere in between dark amber and brown with a thin khaki head.
S: Despite the light color, this is very roasty. Starts of with char and ash, and perhaps a little bit of a burnt toast aroma to it. I get a little bit of chocolate and a slight nutty character. Maybe a little bit earthy, too.
T: The flavor is just odd and doesn’t really match up to the nose (or a stout) at all. Fairly acidic on the tongue with a definite fruitiness to it. Some toffee, moderate roast, and fairly bitter. This is more like a bad brown ale than anything.
M: The body is medium and the carbonation is in that range as well.
D: This is one of the few times I’ve truly been let down by a New Glarus beer. Not interested in ticking this one again.

Bottle. Poured a dark brown color with a large brown frothy head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Medium to heavy complex toasted malty aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture. Medium to heavy roasted balanced flavor with a medium to heavy roasted dark chocolate finish of moderate duration. This is a solid brew.
