A pitch black beer with a thin dark brown head. The aroma is sweet and very roasted, but also with light coffee notes. The flavor is sweet and again very roasted combined with light notes of coffee and chocolate. Nice. joergen (29622) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 1, 2006

(Bottle 35,5 cl) Pours completely black and opaque with a light brown head.. Malty, lightly burned aroma. Medium-bodied, notes of hard roasted malt with a light, underlying sweetness. Light bitterness in the finish. 300406 fiulijn (21516) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 6, 2006
Black color; thin brown head. Simple but very nice aroma, basically roasted malt and coffee. Medium body, smooth mouthfeel, good malt, caramel and roasted malt well combined together. Very pleasant. jtclockwork (17654) - , New Jersey, USA - MAY 13, 2010
Bottle thanks to Rando7. This is more like a nut brown ale than a stout. Pours muddy brown with nice tan head. Nose is almost pure nuts. Taste is low bodied nuts, hazlenut and lightly toasted malts. Very tasty. Easy to drink.

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. Ratman197 (15624) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JUN 12, 2010

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. Drake (14332) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 27, 2008
12 oz. bottle courtesy of goryshkewych. Thanks George! Medium brown pour with a medium head. Roasted malt aroma with coffee notes. Taste is very big coffee with some chocolate, oatmeal. Medium bodied. Straightforward and very solid. Dogbrick (14326) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 21, 2006
Bottle courtesy of Quinn’s IGA in La Crosse. Pours flat black with a medium thick and rocky beige head. Sticky patches of lacing. Strong roasty aroma of coffee and malt. Rich and smooth body with a nice flavor profile of roasted malt, chocolate and espresso. The finish is sweet with underlying coffee notes. As with most New Glarus beers this is tasty and well-made.
