Brew Review 21 // Tom Green Milk Stout by Beaus


It's got to be beer o'clock time somewhere! So with that in mind let's get on with a beer review. With Craft Beers or Independent Brewery Beers gaining such popularity, it should come as no surprise that bands and celebrities want to embrace the movement. Sometimes it can produce great results like this beer I'm about review, whilst other times it's a a bit meh... Looking at you Iron Maiden (FOR SHAME!). Though that beer is a topic for another time. For today's review we explore a collaboration beer between a local Ontario brewery and a local Ottawa celebrity: The Tom Green Milk Stout.

For those who may not of heard him Tom Green is a Canadian actor, rapper (hahaha), writer, comedian, producer, director, talk show host, and media personality. He was once married to Drew Barrymore and has starred in a lot of comedy films. He is local here in Ottawa and is big fan of the local craft scene and has helped Beaus on numerous occasions with festivals and shows.

As you can see from the label it's all about Tom Green. With his face dominating the label and it definitely helps the bottle to stand out on the shelf.

Details

Name: Tom Green Beer
Style: Milk Stout
Brewery: Beaus All Natural Brewing Co.
Country: Ontario, Canada.
Price: $5.25 CAD 600ml Bottle
ABV: 5%

Commercial Fluff:
"Milk Stout collaboration with actor Tom Green.
This is The Tom Green Beer It's not Tom The Green Beer This is my favorite beer Because it is my beer.
Opaque, dark brown colour with thick foam; intense aromas of roasted malt, espresso bean and chocolate; full bodied, good carbonation and resonating roasted flavours from the nose that linger on to the long finish."

Own Opinion

Sight: Pours a rich deep chocolate colour, with a thin tan head. Looks delicious, the sort of beer I would drink all day.
Aroma: Exactly what you would expect from a Milk Stout. Roasty aromas with some sweet milk chocolate notes. Smells sweet but the roasted aromas really help balance it.
Taste: Creamy milk chocolate mouth-feel, coats the tongue nicely like whole milk. It has a slight hint of coffee and a solid finishing taste of roasted malts.
Would I buy it again? Yes.

Overview

Once again Beaus have produced a solid beer (have let to have a bad one). It looks great and standout on the shelf, pours beautifully and has a great taste and aroma. I would like it to have a bit more body though. Would also be interesting to see what it would taste like if barreled aged. Maybe I should shoot an email off to Beaus about it.

So what are thoughts on this beer, get in contact and let me know.
