New Glarus Road Slush Stout

This stout is made with oatmeal from Chilton, Wisconsin. It is from the New Glarus Brewing Company  in New Glarus, Wisconsin. Their beers are only distributed in Wisconsin. Their beers are tasty, yet very accessible. I tried this the other night when a sudden early April snowstorm was rapidly dumping thick, heavy, wet, slushy snow. So, it seemed the perfect time for this beer.

The beer pours black in appearance, ruby and dark brown when held to the light. There is a relatively short head of tan foam. The aroma is smokey, char, mineral tang, chocolate. The taste follows the aromas, lots of nice char and chocolate. The finish is mostly dry and moderately bitter. The beer drinks smooth, but also with a tingle of carbonation. This is a very pleasant drinking stout.
