New Glarus Coffee Stout

I kicked the weekend off with a home brew, Honey Pot Pale Ale, at work with the boss and a fellow IT colleague. I thought this would lead to a crazy a night of American craft beer but I found myself in the middle of a game of Titan Quest with the guys from work. I wanted something familiar, something not over bearing, something I didn’t have to physical review this time around.

Coffee Stout by New Glarus Brewing Company was exactly what I needed. New Glarus is a frequent stop, so it is something familiar. Coffee Stout is a mild stout so it wasn’t over bearing. I have had it plenty of times in the past so I didn’t have to do a review. Perfect.

Coffee Stout is a regular release from New Glarus, that has enough coffee flavor/aroma to know it was there but really allows the under lying stout to shine through, and that it does. Roasted and chocolate notes are aided by the coffee to form a nice drinking, solid stout. Enjoy!

Aroma: 9, Taste: 9, Look: 9, Drinkability: 9, Overall: 9.0

Useless Fact: The figure of Kong Kong seen in the original movie of the same name was actually a model 18 inches high.
