In this beer blog, we are going to get into another brew from New Glarus Brewing Company. The beer is called Coffee Stout. If you read my earlier beer blog, you know the history of this brewery. If you have not, please, read that earlier beer blog. Let us get into this beer.
This coffee stout has a black color with a tan color head on the brew. The smell is chocolate with a little coffee notes. The taste of the full body beer has a chocolate with a little coffee notes. The aftertaste is a dry coco to the beer. It is kind of drinkable beer.
Here is a description from the beer bottle and website (www.newglarusbrewing.com):
Hearty and satisfying, out Coffee Stout is the ultimate full-bodied brew. Wisconsin water, roasted malts and American hops are the natural ingredients we use to brew this bier. Then cold pressed organic coffee from Just Coffee co-op is infused into the brew.
Expect this bier to pour a deep creamy head over an ebony rich body. Notice the powerful malt bouquet balanced by a spectrum of extravagant flavor. Served at room temperature this Wisconsin Coffee Stout is guaranteed to warm even the coldest heart.
Here is their website and twitter addresses:
In the end, this is a pretty nice coffee stout. I love how the coffee is not too heavy in this stout. Most coffee stouts have a heavy coffee and it is not very well balance. Now that might be how the beer is design which is fine. I am not knocking it but it nice to get one like this one from New Glarus. The problem I have with this brewery. I do not know if it is the water they are using or the same yeast in their beers. I just feel the base of the beers are the same and kind of taste the same. I realize coffee stout to a cream ale or a lager. I know that and they are different. There is something the same in all their beers. This was pointed out by a few of my friends and there a few breweries like this. I enjoy most of the beers I had from this brewery. This brewery makes some great beers and I wish they were in the Chicago or Michigan market, when I go back to my home state, I could drink some of their beers. Let me know what you think. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
