3.5/5 rDev -4.9%
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.

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.

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

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.

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.
