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?

UPDATED: SEP 20, 2011 Perfect dark oatmeal stout appearance with a crisp, cream head. Tinny aroma and taste that seems canned as well--even thought this is a bottled product. The oatmeal flavors and malt are subdued, but detectable. This beer is just underdeveloped--the aroma and flavors warm to become more characteristic of a brown ale--with an offkey bitter-sourness. Re-rated: 9-20-11: So it’s been over 9 years since I’ve tried this last! Most of my early comments still ring true. It’s an interesting animal of an oatmeal stout with a distinct diacetyl presence that unsettles the taste buds a bit. Eh.

Re-Rate 06/06/02: Very deep garnet color, dark beige head and generous lace. Nose is malt, sweet, light chocolate, front is sweet, the top is light to medium, the finish is acidic, dry, nicely hopped and a nice ’Mild Beginners’ Stout.

This stuff looked great when it was poured, but when i took a swig it tasted like soy sauce. It is pretty rancid swill and i will never waste my money on it. If you want Big Sky brews, go with Moose Drool.

Has everything a stout should have, except a poor taste. If oatmeal stout is your thing, keep looking.

fraternie (814) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 11, 2002
Creamy mouthfeel, roasted coffee malt flavor. Fairly smooth but a little bit of a lingering aftertaste, low abv so there is no bite to cover. Not incredibly complex but nice flavor and body.

Has a great ’small-batch’ flavor to it. Not to toot my own horn, but it tasted VERY similar to a coffee stout I recently brewed. I still think their’s is better though.
