Notes/Commercial Description:
‟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.

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.

3.39/5  rDev -7.9%

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.

3.88/5  rDev +5.4%

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.

3.63/5  rDev -1.4%

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.

3.24/5  rDev -12%

600 ml bottle from LCBO for $4.85 CDN. Served well-chilled into glassware. Batch 3431 dated Dec 27, 2013.

Appearance - Opaque dark cola brown color with a nice 2 finger tan head, that unfortunately doesn't stick around long. A few bubbles are visible and there's some red hues in the beer, but it really is too dark to see much of anything.

Smell - Some coffee chocolate blend but also a good dose of roasted grains in there, more so than expect from a milk stout. Also a specific mineral characteristic in the aroma too especially while reasonably cold.

Taste - Roasted characteristics of some coffee but I'm not getting this as a milk stout as the chocolate sweetness and the richness that I've come to associate with milk stouts just isn't there. There is a thinness perhaps from the aforementioned mineral characteristics in the aroma that leak through into the taste. Does get better as it warms some, more coffee flavor and less mineral tastes.

Mouthfeel - Thin and watery without the desired sweetness and slickness of a milk stout. Medium-high carbonation, but very thin bodied.

Overall - I don't know if this was not a good bottle or what but it was pretty bland and just paled in comparison with the other milk stouts I've had. Definitely a lighter version of the style, I wouldn't repeat this again.

3.43/5  rDev -6.8%

From the 650 ml bottle to a pint glass.

This beer pours a deep brown almost black with a fair two finger head that breaks quickly leaving little behind. The nose is mild with roast some chocolate and a bit of coffee. Taste is a bit of a lot down, I expected the typical milk/sweet stout taste and it didn't deliver. I got roasts and coffee with some cocoa in the taste, but it lacked punch. Mouth feel was thin and the carbonation was fine.

I love milk/sweet stouts and Beau's told me that this is what I should expect... But I don't feel that this is what this beer is. It is okay, nothing more.
