Road Slush Stout
brewed by the New Glarus Brewing Company - New Glarus, Wisconsin
stout 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 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.
Beer Review by Beer Advocate
Appearance - An opaque black color with a thin tan head that becomes
patchy. A little lacing is noticeable from place to place on the
Aroma - Heavy on the roasted grains with accompanying dark
chocolate. Almost seems like some coco puffs as well, so milk
chocolate in there as well.
Taste - The roasted grains are prominent again, but smooth and not
overpowering. The roasted flavor is accompanied by coffee as the
milk chocolate enters as well. The milk chocolate turns to more of a
dark chocolate towards the end with a slight bitterness in the
Mouthfeel- Full bodied and smooth on the tongue. Moderate
carbonation to go along with it.
Overall - A really great beer. The roasted mat presence creates a
really strong back bone for this beer to thrive. The silky mouthfeel
adds to the taste and makes this beer disappear a lot quicker than
you would like.
