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

Got this one from Hopsolutely this past summer. Thanks again guys!

From a 600ml bottle into a snifter. Pretty bottles.
Batch no. 5625
Bottled 22 May 2014

APPEARANCE: A clear dark brown pour yields a three finger, medium looking, creamy, light tan head with very good retention. Transparent black body with very high levels of carbonation for the style. Head slowly fades to a thick foamy cap. A half wisp remains leaving some dots of lacing down the glass.

SMELL: Roasted notes, coffee and cocoa powder on the nose. Sweet cream and light milk sugar aromas as well. Well balanced and medium strength.

TASTE: Light roasted flavors with caramel up front, then flavors of sweet cream and milk sugars at the swallow. Medium but lingering finish of lactose, some cocoa powder and lightly roasted flavors. Not quite as flavorful as hoped, but well balanced and enjoyable.

PALATE: Medium body and medium levels of carbonation. Creamy smooth on the palate, goes down smooth and finishes slightly dry. Pretty nice here.

OVERALL: Not bad. Could use a touch more lactose sugar in this one, as the milk quality is slightly too modest here. It’s there, but it’s a touch too faint. Better this than a lactose bomb though, and as it is, it’s a perfectly solid beer overall. Worth checking out if you get the chance, and I’m glad I did. Thanks again Hopsolutely!

600ml bottle into snifter. packaged april 17, 2014. consumed on may 21, 2014

a: pitch black with one and a half fingers of slightly off-white head. impressive

s: very smoky up front, almost like smelling salty smoked meat. no thanks. hints of coffee, chocolate and dark fruits

t: salty and smoky up front, which lingers for quite a while. slight chocolate and dark fruit notes emerge mid-to-late palate. the chocolate flavour becomes stronger as it warms up. finishes salty and dry with coffee, slight roasted malt and smoky flavours

m: medium mouthfeel, medium carbonation

o: oddly salty all throughout the tasting? even if these off-flavours were taken out, i don't think the beer would be that great to begin with. glad i tried this but i most likely won't have this ever again

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.

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.

I never cared much for Tom Green's humour; like most people I found him a little too bizarre and immature. The beer that bares his name, however, definitely looks like the kind of thing that's up my alley: opaque except directly into the light, this Milk Stout is the colour of ruddy cocoa powder and has a head that inflates off the pour like a hot air balloon.

The aroma is part roast, chocolate, french vanilla, and coffee and cream. People at the brewery take note: an added pinch of cinnamon and/or nutmeg would make for a great spiced Christmas offering. This is also the kind of smoky, malty profile that could stand up to a few hot peppers to create a mole- or Mexican hot chocolate-like beer (see: Channel Ocho).

Each sip mixes in the mouth marshmallow, nuts, coffee, and milk chocolate. Its mocha and rocky-road flavour profile is not hard to enjoy, especially if you're in the mood for dessert. That being said, while the lactic tang may help emulate ice cream, there's nowhere the degree of sweetness (a good thing) or malty depth to compete with the likes of Häagen-Dazs (a bad thing).

The caramel and milk chocolatey notes come up against an astringent smoky element in the mouthfeel; it's like the tongue's been used to clean the barbecue grills. Semblances to french vanilla ice cream notwithstanding, the aftertaste is ashy. And despite a latte-like sweetness this 'charred' quality leaves a taste a little too close to stale coffee breath for my liking.

Mediocre Canadian breweries teaming up with washed-up Canadian performers has turned out a couple good stouts, though this one doesn't come close to comparing with Flying Monkeys' Barenaked Ladies collaboration. Also, let's be honest, this isn't anything Beau's couldn't have come up with on their own (what exactly did Tom Green do?). It's on exactly the same 'good - not great' level as most of their other offerings and likewise doesn't warrant any special attention.
