‟This is The Tom Green Beer
It’s not The Green Tom Beer
This is my favourite beer
Because it is my beer.”
– Tom Green

Beau’s and Canadian actor and comedian Tom Green have collaborated to create The Tom Green Beer. A milk stout, The Tom Green Beer displays flavours of chocolate and coffee, while delivering a creamy, velvety texture, and finishing with a mild sweetness.

Truth be told, I've avoided this beer for a very long time for the very same reason I avoid anything to do with Tom Green (not that that has been hard of late). I can't stand Tom Green. Who can?

This looks very much like you would expect a stout to look. Deep dark chocolate black. A frothy tan head. A thin layer of foam retains to the bitter end.

The aroma is textbook stout: Roasty. Chocolatey. Some faint cherry/raisin in the background. Slightly chalky, with a hint of tobacco and coffee grinds.

And wouldn't you know it, it tastes like a stout. It's actually pretty good. Lots of nice dry roast and dark baker's chocolate backed up by a milk chocolate sweetness with some nuttiness and a bit of a minerally finish, with some of that cherry (or is it raspberry?) fruitiness that I noticed in the aroma.

It's strongly carbonated which cuts the chocolate sweetness but I wouldn't mind if that was dailed down a bit.

Overall more of a stout than a milk stout as it lacks the right amount of sweetness to offset the roasty character for me, but semantics aside it's quite an enjoyable beer. I wouldn't call it complex but really this beer was worth it just for the one line in the description on Beau's website:

"hints of nut(s)"

Ha! I see what you did there.

Anyway, I wonder what hack comedian who has faded into oblivion they will pull out for their next beer?

It scores high because this is the beer I have been looking for. From the pour to the bottom of the glass, its a beauty. Starts with that heavier stout pour but with the carbonation being a touch higher it develops a nice head that hangs around. Dark, roasty and smooth, but cleans nice. Leaves a taste long after that makes you want more. #notgreentom

Purchased at the LCBO 600ml bottle for $4.85. Served in a tulip at 8deg C.

A- Opened well with a nice 2" brown head. Very dark as expected

S- Roasted malt, molasses

T- Ok. Not very creamy at all. Falls short on most aspects a good milk stout

M- Ok. no creaminess at all. Very uninspired.

O- Not that good. Gave it a bit of a better rating than I think I should have. Will not buy again

Food Pairing

This not very inspired milk stout went with... pizza. Hey pizza can go with almost any beer depending on toppings.

Enjoy

Bottle: Poured a black color ale with a large foamy head with medium retention and light lacing. Aroma of light lactose and dry roasted malt is pleasant enough. Taste is also a good mix between some lactose notes with some light dry roasted malt with subtle black chocolate notes. Body is about average with good carbonation. Nothing to write home about but still better than your average offering from Beau’s.

A: The beer is black when view from afar but when held up a bright light the edges are dear reddish brown. It poured with a half finger high beige colored head that died down, leaving traces of bubbles on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light aromas of lactose are present in the nose. Notes of roasted malts become noticeable as the beer warms up.
T: The taste has flavors of dark, roasted malts along with notes of lactose and a slight amount of bitterness. No sweetness is perceptible.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a little thin on the palate with a low to moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer feels lighter and thinner compared to other beers in the style, but is easy to drink.

Bottle from the LCBO for $5 or so

Appearance - Dark brown colour with a small size frothy of white head. I can't make out the amount of carbonation showing and there is no lacing. The head lasted for around 3-4 minutes before it was gone.

Smell - Malts, chocolate, grains

Taste & Mouth - There is an above average amount of carbonation and I can taste malts, chocolate, and faint coffee. There is also a graininess and a touch of smoke.

Overall - More of just a regular stout than a milk stout feel wise. It has an okay taste but is pretty boring and unremarkable.

600ml bottle purchased as a single from the LCBO booth at the Toronto Royal Winter Fair.

Poured into an imperial pint glass, formed a 1/2" tan head over the clear root beer brown brew. Frothy head fizzes away slowly, with slow-falling coating lace. Aroma is moderate sweet coffee.

Taste is dark sweetness to start, a bit of lactic tart in the middle, and coasts to the close with lightly bitter/acrid coffee character. Mouthfeel is silky smooth, and drinkability is very good. Liking this one.

600 mL bottle from the LCBO; packaged on Dec 12 2013 and served slightly chilled. If someone were to travel backward through time and tell the naive, year 2000 equivalent of myself that I'd be drinking a Tom Green Beer about a decade later, I'm pretty sure I would herniate myself with laughter.

Pours an opaque black colour with some brownish tinges, topped with one finger of relatively short-lived, creamy light tan-coloured head. A modest cap and collar are retained, with a ring of lacing around the glass. I am loving this aroma, though - lots of roasted malts and lactose sweetness, milk chocolate and a touch of coffee. About what I expect from the style; it's enough to tempt me into a sip, anyway.

This is a pretty yummy stout. Roasted, nutty malts, lactose sweetness and treacle dominate initially, with more of a mocha coffee and baker's cocoa bitterness toward the finish. Light roasted coffee in the aftertaste. On the lighter side of medium-bodied, with relatively aggressive carbonation. Kind of watery, actually... my only serious objection, although it becomes less of a problem as the beer warms. Otherwise, this is a very drinkable stout - quite light and easy-drinking, and with enough flavour to arouse my tastebuds without tiring them out.

Final Grade: 3.88, a B+. As far as sessionable milk stouts go, The Tom Green Beer is a rather good one. It is nicely balanced - neither overly sweet nor overly bitter, with a straightforward roasted malt, chocolate and lactose flavour that makes this a great introduction to the milk stout style for anyone curious. It's not a world-beater, but it's a nice way to get a slow winter's night started.

A: Pours an opaque but clear very dark brown (approaching jet black) in color with moderate amounts of active visible carbonation rising along the edges of the glass and moderate amounts of cola brown highlights. The beer has a half finger tall foamy dark beige head that reduces to a large patch of wispy extremely thin film and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light amounts of lacing are observed.

S: There are light to moderate aromas of roasted malts with hints of coffee, chocolate, and just the faintest note of lactose sweetness.

T: Upfront there is a light to moderate flavor of roasted malts with light flavors of bittersweet chocolate and freshly brewed coffee. There is a very light note of lactose sweetness. Light amounts of dry bitterness in the finish which fades way slowly.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation.

O: Enjoyable but I wish the coffee and chocolate notes were stronger and there was a little more of the lactose sweetness. Lighter bodied than other examples in the style.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A - Typical stout appearance. Nice and dark with a short foamy head.

S - Roasted barely, nuts, and coffee bean.

T - Nice combination of coffee bean with a touch of vanilla sweetness. The flavours are not too strong nor overly complex but still well balanced with a semi-dry finish.

M - Creamy and milk-like mouth feel. Not very heavy compared to other Stouts which makes this beer drinkable but takes away from some of its richness.

O - My first Milk Stout so wasn't sure what to expect but I did enjoy it. This brew could use a thicker body but I enjoyed the combination of flavours that did not go overboard with the sweetness.
