Malty and creamy, and very smooth. Very Drinkable and a quite well made. "Slow Elk" is the nickname for a cow, which are sometimes mistaken for Elk?

Darkmagus82 (2130) - - NOV 8, 2014
Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours a nearly pitch black color with a one finger head of a tan colored foam. The head fades very fast leaving only a light level of lace on the sides of the glass. Smell- The aroma of the brew is heaviest of a roasted malt with tons of oatmeal and caramel. Other big aromas of a cocoa nature are there as well mixed with some hints of a vanilla and an almost cola like smell to produce a very pleasant and inviting warming aroma overall. Taste – The taste starts with a moderately roasty and sweet flavor with tons of caramel and cola flavors upfront. There is a bit of an oatmeal flavor, which starts out light and remains so throughout to the end of the taste. All the while, as the taste moves forward, the roasted flavor seems to dwindle a bit with it taking on even more cola and a little bit of dark fruit of a more plum like nature. With a little bit of a cherry and some light vanilla coming at the very end, one is left with a moderately sweet and sorta lightly roasted flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is rather thin for a stout of 5.4 % with a carbonation level that is on the average to slightly higher side for a stout. Not really the right feel for the style as it too much accentuated the sweet over the roasted-darker flavor so the brew. Overall – Not really one I cared for all too much, it was too sweet without enough roast and didn’t really have a great body for the style. Ah… just OK.

Pretty average all the way around. Normal color and aroma, rather dull appearance. Taste is correct for the style, but not too exciting

Well rounded oatmeal stout but also rather boring. Big and malty, little tan head that fades quick.

HIGHB4LL (837) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 18, 2014
12 oz. bottle from Cash Wise in Watford. Appearance: finger light brown head, light lacing, dark brown-black. Aroma: milk chocolate, oatmeal, light roast, earthy, light coffee, molasses. Palate: full body, average carbonation, oily texture, bitter finish. Taste: subtle sweet milk chocolate into a rather intense molasses malty sweetness, and then into a moderate coffee bitterness. Overall, the beer is not super smooth, and the palate is a little rough for the style in my opinion.

"the only part of this beer that is lacking is the body, and not by much. it looks like your prototypical stout, has a rich flavor, but a slightly thin feel. Very nice roasted malt finish. A solid oatmeal stout and one of BSs best."

DiarmaidBHK (3951) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 6, 2014
bottle from Hazel’s beverage world. Pours dark brown with a thin white head. a bit of roasted malt on the nose. Can’t say I’m getting much lactose on the tongue. It’s just tastes like a regular ass stout to me and kind of boring

Bottle, deep, almost opaque brown/red, skiff of tan foam. Aroma roasty malt, coffee, raisin. Taste dark roast malt, cola, coffee, finish dry. Palate a little light, carbonation average. Mildly sweet in the middle, slightly dry finish.

Christpuncher (2403) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 30, 2014
HAve not had a bad oatmeal stout yet and this one is middle of the pack. Not too milk flavored and has little coffee or chocolate tones. Easy to drink and pours black in color with a tan head. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
