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?

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

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.

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.

Serving type: bottle

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

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.

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.
