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?

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 (4652) - 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.

3fourths (8100) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 29, 2003
The aroma resembles wine in a way. Roasty, acidic, caramelly. A little thin, but with a nice burnt profile in the finish.

beermatrix (1497) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - JUN 25, 2003
Rich black color with some dark ruby highlights with a tannish small bubbly head that fizzes away quick. Smells of oats, roasted malt with some chocolate and burnt cookie caramel notes. The taste was a little on the light side for a stout that looked so dark, but is pretty good non the less. Lots of solid oats, slight caramel, roasted malts and some slightly burnt chocolate tones. Has a nice smooth feel with a sweet tang, caused by the chocolate and from a very small hop presence. This stuff ain't bad, I actually liked it alot and would drink it any old time.

Bottle. Pretty good. Aroma was encouraging with some coffee and chocolate, but the taste didn't live up to it. A moderate stout.

loweredsixth (946) - Clovis, California, USA - MAY 14, 2003
Sampled at 45 deg F
Thin brown/ruby color for a stout with a small diminishing head. The aroma was nice... chocolatey, with a slightly roasted coffee bean character. The flavor just didn't really deliver...mild chocolate, subtle coffee, a slight sour note with no oatmeal flavor. The feel was a little too thin, but very creamy.

AxeMaster221 (343) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 1, 2003
Well, it looked nice, but didnt live up to the promise. Too bland, too thin, to boring, maybe a beginners stout.

ElGaucho (2220) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - APR 27, 2003
Rich, malty, chocolatety aroma. Tan, average-sized head; mostly disapating. Mostly opaque body with good lace. A little thin; certainly not as rich as promised by the aroma. Chocalate notes are evident in the tongue. A good session beer.

Nice Stout. This was my first forray into the dark heavy beer arena. Not too bad, but I must compare it to some other stouts. Nice after flavor, leaves you wanting more.
