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?

Smells of malt and chocolate. Could use more head and better lacing, but the beer itself is very dark (as it should be). Tastes alright, I’d much rather have a Samuel Smith Oatmeal Stout. Goes down slightly dry and bitter. Not too impressed with this beer.

UPDATED: FEB 1, 2003 Poured thin and watery, but real neat ruby hue to it though. Faint roasted nose with some sweeter oaty notes as well. Nice roasted finish, more coffeish as it goes. not great.

Tap. Black in color with a little brown at the edges. A sweet malty chocolate and coffee aroma. The flavor is more subtle than I expected with the oatmeal and malt flavors coming through. A fairly thin body for a stout.

I did not much care for this beer. Way too much coffee. Slightly salty as well. Not up my alley.

Gregory (357) - Pullman, Washington, USA - AUG 7, 2002
had on tap at the brewery, I thought this was really a great oatmeal stout. Dark brown, light head. coffee aroma. The flavor is dark and crisp. A little different from other oatmeal stouts. But this one is very enjoyablle.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 19, 2002
Orange brown in color. With a head like a weak american standard. Aromas of roasted barley, caramel, and chocolate. Very thin in mouthfeel with a bit of fizz. Flavors are OK, but way to thin.

VENOM (941) - Connecticut, USA - JUN 26, 2002
Clear chestnut? Fizzy and thin tan head. Steady carbonation. Aroma of black and chocolate malts, grain husks and light oats. Bland and dry tasting and weak with an exorbitant amount of black malt harshness. Thin bodied. Smooths a bit with a hint of caramel sweetness. Finishes with a grainy flavor and weak malt punch. Slightly fizzy as well. Lacking roasted malt flavor. ’This is one stout that even people who ’don’t like dark beers’ can love’? What about those of us who do love them? Pfthh.
