COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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?

Tap. Large head with somewhat large bubbles that subsided quickly with a bit of lace. The nose is very mildly of hops, but toasted malt, mustiness. The beer is a dark brown, almost opaque. Tastes malty, with a heavy, creamy mustiness in the mouth--oats, caramel, brunt grains. There's a subtle nutty flavor, like peanuts or cashews, and a smooth creamy mouthfeel.

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 9, 2003
Pours dark, with unforgiving edges of auburn. Big roast flavors full of caramel and chocolate. Not too much wrong with this one.

Ok bought in the 12 oz brown long neck. Rather amusing label a heifer with tied on antlers LOL. Beer actually looks pretty darn good when poured into my pint mug dark mahogany brown with a nice tan coloured head..the head shrinks fast but never quite dissapears. This one i can definatlly smell the oats..along with a semi=pleasant burnt aroma..its not bad though. Taste is good and creamt to start than a oaty flavour near the middle of my tongue..it loses its way in the final third..no after tatse to speak of. Mouthfeel is too thin for this style..too watery near the end. This beer started off good but limped home in the end..a bit of work and this could be a good brew.

Decent aroma greets the nose. Color is a dark reddish. Taste is mostly sweet, some vanilla. Not too great.

clear brown, small off whaite head. tootsie roll, nugat, cocoa and malty aroma. the flavour follows and is quite smoky for something that isn't smoked. earthy finish.

Oakes (12789) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 4, 2003
Dark reddish-brown. Nutty (almond, peanut butter), smokey and coffeish aroma. Somewhat thin, but with toasty notes. Only light nuttiness.

TipsyMcStager (1139) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 18, 2003
Molasses, coffee, and a pronounced smokiness in the aroma. Pours very dark, but not dark enough for a stout. Pours flat and has a weak head. Lots of things going on in the flavour but it doesn't seem to know what it want to be. Smokiness, alcohol, hops and sourness in the finish. Thin palate similar to a porter. Should this be a smoked porter instead of a stout?

presario (4709) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 18, 2003
Dark with burgundy highlights. Light but lasting head and lacing. Very light body and overall flavour for a stout. Very smokey though with a light finish. Not complex or strong in other flavours.

If there could be such a thing, this would be a great breakfast beer. I had this one first and very early in the day and found it quite enjoyable and subtle not overpowering with it different distinctions of flavor ranging from brown sugar and cinnamon to even a bit of a roasted, somewhat caramel aftertaste. Balanced and lightly complex, this would be a great session beer.
