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.

Damn fine brew! Poured with a nice fine foamy head and plenty of lace. Rich stout aroma. Dark garnet color, almost opaque. Not overly sweet - very well balanced actually. Velvety texture. Quite drinkable, even to say perhaps a session beer. Yum! Having this at Bodega Brew Pub downtown La Crosse, Wis.

One of the better sweet stouts around. I was quite surprised with this offering from New Glarus, as some of their beers are hit or miss. Very rich and sweet.

I had intended on having another Stout for number 500 but I can’t think of a better brand than New Glarus to annoint this milestone. This is definitely a sweet stout, very smooth, black glass liquid with big flavor and served up at its optimum temperature makes for gourmet slushing. Big sweet chocolate flavor no part of this beer overpowers but it lets you know its there. Great Beer to christen my 500th!!!

12 oz bottle via CaptainCougar (thanks!). Pours a deep dark brown/almost black with ruby highlights and a large tan head. Nice aroma of mocha,chocolate,toffee. Taste starts with some sweet vanilla and molasses and ends with a nice bittersweet (mostly sweet) chocolate with some espresso and licorice in the background. Medium carbanation. Thin/medium body. Silky mouthfeel. Very easy drinking and balanced. Wish i had another one!

Such a tasty stout. Makes me want to lick a frozen Wisconsin winters road. I probably wouldn’t be getting the same result though.

Appearance: slightly see-through, though no less blackish brownish slushy looking to thine eyes. Khaki head is mousse and silk; decadent. Head fades like a donut, sticking to the sides, then nothing, then a donut hole of foam floating in the middle. Lace.
Nose: burnt, charcoal, tar. Black root and black licorice root; pure and from the earth with some dirt still sticking to it. Campfire smoke, ash, burnt marshmallows. Darkly pitted fruit essence in the back. Burnt wood and the essence of black earth.
Palate: clean mild mouthfeel reveals all burnt tasty pleasures to me. Roasted and dry. Brittle chocolates and burnt marshmallows in the back. Lots of smoke, campfire, and wood; smoke is intriguing in that tis nothing like a rauche or peat smoke – very clean. Black root lingers in the back. Dry finish especially atop my tongue but still dry overall. Gentle softness underneath.
Final Thoughts: everyone glorifies snow…then they live in it only to realize it only stays pretty and white for all of a few seconds before turning into icky mucky road slush. A fitting dark brew and a fitting name, New Glarus once more impresses.

The aroma is a chocolate oatmeal dream. The mouth feel silky and the finish is all that you would expect from yet another well done beer from the New Glarus folks.mmmm

This was one outstanding stout. In fact, it’s quite possible one of the top 10 stouts I’ve ever had. A beautifully roasted behemoth with coffee, malts and hops all nicely done in the nose. Appearance of used motor oil. Mouthfeel was silky smooth, creamy and full-bodied. Flavor was off the charts good with a chocolatey oatmeal fullness that made you glad to be drinking a beer. Hoppy, malty and roasted coffee finish this out so nicely, you wish you could replicate this beer and have one more. Great stuff.

A very nice stout. Roasty and aromatic. Toast, chocolate, and eathy yeast. Black appearance with a thick mouthfeel.

12oz bottle.
Well, this is about as perfect as an oatmeal stout is gonna get. Pours jet-black and forms a medium tightly-packed tan head that eventually settles to a thin layer and leaves sheets of lace on the sides of the glass. Aroma is a perfect balance of roasted grain, oats, and coffee. Big full roasty-dry flavor is supported by oats, a dash of caramel, modest hop bitterness and moderate burnt-grain bitterness. Gets a bit sweeter as it warms. Smooth, creamy, and great big thick palate with a long, balanced oaty and toasty-dry aftertaste. A beer this dry has no business sliding down this easy. This is one phenomenal beer and I don’t even like oatmeal stouts very much.
