Roy's Market New Glarus

New Glarus Coffee Stout pours the darkest of browns with glowing garnet highlights when held to the light. A one finger khaki head formed and quickly faded to a solid skim coat. Drink lacing after each sip. Good looking brew.

Aroma is what was expected. Roasted malts with welcoming hazelnut drifting throughout. Freshly ground coffee beans on the backend. Slight lactic quality.

Flavor is much like the aroma. Lightly roasted malts start things off but fall to a backdrop fairly quickly. Hazelnut shows up around mid palate along with a hint of spicy hops. The fresh coffee shows up on the finish with a few drops of cream. Very good flavor

The mouthfeel is just a little on the thin side. A creamier mouthfeel would go perfect with the flavors. The thinner body does make this beer an easy drinker.

Good drinkability for a stout. Thinner body makes this go down incredibly easy.

Very flavorful enjoyable stout. The coffee is subdued and in no way overpowering like some other coffe infused beers I've sampled in the past. A sessionable coffee stout. Another winner from New Glarus.

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.

*Uploading my old reviews, this one has a review date of: 8-8-07. If I can acquire the beer again I will re-review it*

This bottle is courtesy of Jay23, thanks!

The beer is dark. The head is minimal. In appearance it is average but where this one appears more interesting is in the aroma. I get a wonderful mixture of coffee, espresso, chocolate, and roasted malts. I also detect a sweet aroma that appears like vanilla to me. The taste is less than expected compared to the aroma. Coffee taste is good in this one but it seems a bit one-dimensional. Carbonation is good, the mouthfeel is a bit lacking, but I would rate it slightly above average. I think that without the coffee flavor this stout would be pretty bland.

A surprisingly simple bottle from New Glarus. No unusual style, like the Apple Ale. Not a twist on a style. Just a simple stout brewed with coffee. They must be crazy...

Color is expected. Black, no light getting through. Smell is a bit muted, but you can definitely pick out the usual stout smells and a decent hint of the coffee. Taste is even better than the smell, and I am not a coffee fan either. Slight bitterness from both the coffee and the hops at the start. Then the roasted grains and malts flavors. Finishes with a very very slight sweet/sour taste that vanishes quickly. Feel is good. Slightly thin, but enough to stick around a little while.

Overall, another good bottle from New Glarus. As expected. The coffee doesn't stand out so much that it masks everything else. Yet it's there plenty.
