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

600ml bottle poured into a pint glass. ABV 5%.
A - Poured a nearly black dark brown with a very thin brown head. Head reduces to a few surface bubbles and a bit of lacing is produced.
S - Some sweetness, chocolate, coffee, some toast. The sweetness certainly has milk tones to it. Aroma is to style.
T - Milk sweetness, coffee, chocolate, roasted/toasted flavours, medium-mild bitter finish. Excellent balance. Probably the best stouts I've ever tasted. There's no off flavours of any kind to be found. A smidgen more coffee would make this perfect.
M - Medium carbonation, medium body, slight creaminess, some stickiness, crisp finish.
O - Awesome stout.

I have been trying out a few of Beau's beers lately and this one was definitely very enjoyable. A nice, smooth, easy to drink stout.
Appearance- Typical black stout look with a foggy light brown head.
Smell- Coffee and dark chocolate aroma
Taste- Very creamy at first with a smooth milk taste. Quickly reveals a strong coffee taste with the slight sweetness of dark chocolate.
Mouthfeel- Rather smooth and creamy. Mild carbonation that compliments the flavour and it made the beer smooth and very drinkable.
Overall- I don's have much experience drinking stouts but this one was very enjoyable. The creamy, milk taste made the beer smooth and very easy to drink. The perfect stout for someone who does not enjoy some of the heavier stouts out there. I would drink again and i hope this is not just a limited production. with Tom Green's name attached I am sure many Canadians will be willing to give this a try

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.

I think this is the second milk stout I've ever had. The first was insanely sweet and turned me off on the style. Anyways, saw this, figured I'd give it a try. Pours an ink black with a brown, coffee like head that quickly dissipates. Smells of roasted barley, oats, coffee, dark chocolate, vanilla and cream. Not quite a coffee creamer; something like an Irish cream. Tastes sweet with that Irish cream, dark chocolate and vanilla. Finishes bittersweet with dark chocolate and roasted coffee. Mouthfeel is a little overcarbonated. I'd like it a bit creamier. Overall, I like this beer. Worth checking out, maybe even getting a twelve pack of, but not a case; unless that case is cheap.

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.

This is the Tom Green beer. Not the Green Tom beer.
A- Pitch black pour with a creamy dark tan head standing a finger and a half high. Lacing is minimal.
S- Dark roasted coffee bittersweet chocolate and a touch of burnt toast. There is some lactose sugars that provide what seems to be the only source of sweetness in the smell of this beer.
T- Burnt coffee, dark bakers chocolate, nesquik with some vanilla. Sweeter than the nose with a touch of bitterness to cut through it well. Roasty, dark and very well balanced. Aftertaste is reminiscent of the aftertaste of eating a chocolate bar.
M- Light to medium body, decent carbonation, sticky on the lips.
O- I think Beau's has hit their stride with their more recent releases. They really knocked it out of the park with this one. The price is amazing and the beer is great. Will definitely go back and grab more.

Tom Green Milk Stout.
600mL bottle with freshness date. Leaves a nice rim of lacing around the glass, colour is a blackish brown with a bit of lightness to it.
S – coffee-lightly roasted, chocolate, sappy herbalness, also dark fruits, figs, tobacco, hot cocoa, with a hint of licorice and peppermint. Milk chocolatey sweetness with also a ton of earthy character and some hop bitterness. 4
T – sweet start, cocoa, light coffee notes, smooth creaminess, mocha, raspberry, a bit of an earthy leathery aspect, end is full and lightly drying, hot chocolate aftertaste. Some mild lemon notes, altogether well balanced but I was expecting a more interesting flavor combination.
M – light start leading to a moderate body, with a creamy feel, light carbonation, clean on the palate and refreshing, leaves a bit of a full dry linger which is good. A great session stout, with some hints of mocha and cocoa.
A well rounded milk stout, creamy but maintains enough bitterness to make it a sessionable and rather tasty stout. I would have preferred more follow through with some rich flavors and textures, but the smooth balanced sweetness of this has merits as well. Not a blockbuster, but would make a good introduction to this style. Enjoyable milk stout.
