It's beer o'clock time somewhere! With Craft Beers gaining such popularity it is no surprise that bands and celebrities want to hop on the bandwagon. 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! But that's a topic for another time.
Today we explore a collaboration beer between a local ottawa celebrity and brewery. Enter the Beaus Tom Green Milk Stout.
Green is a Canadian actor, rapper, 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's face and it definitely helps the bottle to stand out on the shelf.

"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."
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.
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 or better let throw some spice into it like habanero chili. Would also be interesting to see what it would taste like if barrelled aged. Maybe I should an email off to Beaus about it.
So what are thoughts on this beer, get in contact and let me know.
