The Tom Green Beer!Milk Stout • 5.0% • Beau's + Friends
This is The Tom Green Beer, it’s not the Green Tom Beer… Beau’s and Canadian actor and comedian Tom Green have collaborated to create The Tom Green Beer! A milk stout, The Tom Green Beer displays flavours of chocolate and coffee, while delivering a creamy, velvety texture, and finishing with a mild sweetness.
History & Style
Milk stouts were first patented in 1907. The use of milk sugar (lactose) helped with the popularity of the style due to its “nourishing” attributes. The Tom Green Beer is a slightly more robust interpretation of the style and showcases the appeal of a milk stout’s silky mouthfeel. The Tom Green Beer! (it’s not the Green Tom beer) is a reference to the opening song of Tom Green’s cable TV show from the 90s. Many of his antics back then involved cows and milk, which led to the idea of making this delicious milk stout with Tom.
The aroma is a complex array of roasted malt character featuring notes of espresso, and chocolate. Roasted elements also dominate the flavour, giving way to subtleties like slightly burnt caramel, and hints of nut(s). The strength of both the flavour and aroma is contrasted by an approachable mouthfeel. The initial dryness of the beer is subdued by a gentle flourish of increased body and sweetness in the finish. The end result is a sessionable, flavourful, and robust stout.
