Tom Green Summer StoutBlonde Milk Stout • 5.0% • The Tom Green Beer
Our Tom Green Beer Milk Stout is going blonde for the summer! Tom Green Summer Stout is a sun-kissed golden ale with roasty and rich stout-like flavour. It is brewed with cacao nibs, and infused with organic fairtrade Colombian coffee roasted locally at Ottawa’s Bridgehead Roastery. A hint of sweetness is contributed by the milk sugar (lactose) that makes a milk stout special.
History & Style
A blonde stout (also known as a golden stout) achieves an almost magical juxtaposition of appearance and experience, by infusing a brilliant, clear golden ale with stout-like aromas and flavours of coffee and cacao. Fun fact: the drawing of Tom Green on this label is exactly the same as The Tom Green Beer Milk Stout, except we’ve added a Hawaiian shirt and sunglasses. We sent Tom three options to choose from – this was the one he liked the best!
The coffee used in Tom Green Summer Stout is a medium-roast organic fairtrade coffee from the Colombian municipality of Piendamó. It was roasted by Ottawa’s Bridgehead Roastery and features flavours of chocolate, caramel, vanilla and roasted marshmallow.
Tom Green Summer Stout pours clear golden-blonde with white foam. Coffee and cacao provide their classic aromas to this beer. The mocha flavour notes are supplemented by subtle berry nuances. The finish is mildly sweet and lingering.
Strawberry, arugula and fennel salad with white balsamic & poppy seed dressing; grilled venison sausage on a crusty bun with red pepper marmalade; mascarpone cheese tiramisu.
