Loved the way it poured, low carbonation, dark brew. First taste and I was hooked, tasted the coffee in the aftertaste. Had a hard time having enough patience to let this one warm to room temp. It was worth the wait. matta (1140) - Tampa, Florida, USA - OCT 14, 2003
This stout was acquired in trade with Bigbadbear63, he is the Shizat!

Oh mama, Now you speakha Me language!! This stout pours a deep jet-black body with a immense caramel colored head. The aroma is, caramel, toffee, chocolate, French roast, Woo, the flavor-flav is a robust and roasted chocolate malt and cream…much sweeter than I had anticipated… I actually pick up more chocalate than I do coffee, although it is evident, I even find a trace of vanilla.
The palate is like a thin chocolate moose, a bit skinny, if this stout had more texture it would be intensely sublime.
surprisingly see through. tiny tan glossy head. plenty of espresso, chocolate. great coffee flavor. heavy roasted barley presence. light mouthfeel. a good stout, pretty effervescent. a bit bigger body would satisfy me kmeves (1098) - Mount Pleasant, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 24, 2003
Very dark and thick brew. Minimal carbonation. Actually tasted better after warming a bit. Very bitter aftertaste. flemdawg (562) - Rowlett, Texas, USA - AUG 10, 2003
Overall a very good beer. Nice color, nice head, nice smell. Nice coffee in the taste without being overpowering. Nice all around

Hey this was allright. My roomates hail from the lovely state of Wisconsin and apparently the natives think this is a horrible brewery, which my roomates consider a travesty. Thick coffe presence, a very nice robust palate and decent body behind it. Different from many coffee stouts, but not different enough to be exported country-wide.

My first New Glarus brew is pleasant, but not a standout brew in any way. Strong coffee aroma emanates from the dark brown, white/tan-headed body. Flavor is much the same: nice roasted barley and coffee. Way too thin to be considered excellent, but solid nonetheless. urbnhautebourg (997) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - JUL 4, 2003
Flavorful basic stout. Not much to say, for I have been drinking Bell's today. Light coffee and chocolate. Pretty good, I should say. JCW (1278) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 3, 2003
Very good sweet stout, thanks Tannertavernboys or Eric. Very dark and smooth, moderate head that quickly dissipates. Light to medium body for a sweet stout. Smooth roast flavors and yes coffee. Taste alot like coffee with cream and sugar. Mildly dry finish, I enjoyed this one! beermatrix (1497) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - JUL 2, 2003
Color is a deep, deep brown, nearly black, with a thin tannish head of creamy foam that faded fast, leaves some light lacy strings. Smell is roasted malt with a hint of coffee, soft nose. Taste is mild roasted malt with a touch of coffee with a pleasing slight bittering coffee bean finish that shows up late. Its a bit flat and thin, could be bolder and heavier in both flavor and body. Don't get me wrong, its still a very drinkable stout, a touch above most. I enjoyed it enough to fulfill my coffee/stout craze.
