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?

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.

P-tor44 (886) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - MAR 27, 2003
nose of coffee and roasted flavors. light color, too light for an oatmeal stout. lots of red and mahagony comes through the glass. very sweet oily oats throughout, mild stout flavors, bitter hops. not up to my standards

Zach Diesel (906) - Sisters, Oregon, USA - FEB 1, 2003
smells of mediocre stout, medium bodied creaminess but like baklava disgustingly sweet and overall simply doesn't fill my stout needs

Nuffield (3701) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JAN 17, 2003
Nice aroma--chocolate, raisins, brown sugar, and a bit of oatmeal. Good flavors, though a bit basic and lacking depth. Unfortunately, I think some of this was due to a decidedly watery palate. A lingering finish of coffe is a nice touch. Drinkable but inexpert.

Crit (3360) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 14, 2003
Deep brown with small tan head. Light chocolate malt nose. Light malt flavor with mild hopping. An entry level stout

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - DEC 23, 2002
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.

GermanBrews76 (679) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - DEC 7, 2002
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.

this one was a surprise thought it would be worse.nice dark body malty with a slight bite at the finish pretty good

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.
