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.

UPDATED: APR 6, 2006 looks like a stout is supposed to. a bit too little head. smell sucks- smells like some crappy beer i cant remember. doesnt even hint at any particular aroma, perhaps vanilla, but thats a stretch. reminds me of a weaker sam adams doublebock (re: awful). tastes alright initially, but then its a lousyish sourness. cloying and saccharine. alcohol in the finish. pretty poor all around. to be fair, ive had some fantastic stouts and porters recently, but this more than pales by comparison.

Pours thick and very dark brown/black. Brown head. Lots of chocolate in the nose. I loved the appearance and aroma but was a bit dissapointed when it hit my mouth. Very light on the tounge (not what I expected from the look). Light flavor and little to no aftertaste. It does taste good, just not ballsy enough for a stout IMO.

MartinT (9653) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 3, 2006
Any first impressions?
-A veil of head settles on opaque black.
-Appealing dry roastiness and dark chocolate sweetness form a highly qualified stout aroma.
-Flavor is an able continuation of the aroma, full of roasted malts and suave chocolatey goodness.
-Body is nutritious yet drinkable, a fun combination of the best of both worlds.

What if you dig deeper?
-Some citrusy hoppiness alleviates the hard-working malts task.
-Flaky cereals ensure an all-around smoothness.
-A balanced and unassertive finish faciliates the next gulp, while disappointing somewhat.
-This is a well-crafted, tasty, and drinkable oatmeal stout; another successful New Glarus product.

Bottle; no date.

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 3, 2006
Thick frothy tan head. Dark brown body. Fresh, green roasty malt with lactic hop flair. Almost overly sweet roasty hops, but with enough roasty bitterness to make it more balanced. Nice lactic blend too. Very enjoyable stout. Simple, yet just right.

ElBorracho (472) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 2, 2006
Bottle. Pours black with a brown thin head. Chocolate, coffee, molasses and heavy roasts in the aroma. Taste follows with the addition of charred wood. A solid stout.

KingpinIPA (841) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 31, 2006
pours a rich, dark color with no head. Smell of roasted coffee. Tastes like a malty bitter chocolate with a burnt coffee after taste. Decent beer

murrayswine (101) - Whitefish Bay, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 27, 2006
It poured limp into a Guinnes tulip; minimal head with decent lacing. The smell is acrid malts with a little oatmeal sweetness. It feels like there is a little chocolate dying to be smelled, but the acrid smell beats it back into sumission. The taste is pleasant. Lightly malted with a hinting of hops, but good balance. I expected more outmeal to come through. not there. All in all, not a bad brew, but I would rather have Grays.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAR 27, 2006
Pours a nearly opaque with a lightly-lacing dark tan head. Aroma of sweet roasted and dark crystal malts with some mocha and a nice hoppy balance. Body starts with a sweet smooth caramel coffee flavor revealing some dark chocolate and mild bitterness toward a bittersweet dry finish. This almost tastes more like a dry stout in the finish, but has some nice sweetness early on. A pretty good stout.

Mangino (1027) - Mississippi, USA - MAR 26, 2006
Pours a the darkest brown color, very nice off white foamy head, retention is good. Light cocoa. grassy hops, caramel. Flavor is sweet, chocolate, cocoa powder. Sweet and rich, well balanced. Nice stout, nice mouthfeel.
