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?

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.

Nuffield (3717) - 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.

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

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.

ElGaucho (2240) - 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.

Well, it looked nice, but didnt live up to the promise. Too bland, too thin, to boring, maybe a beginners stout.

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

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

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.

Deep brown with small tan head. Light chocolate malt nose. Light malt flavor with mild hopping. An entry level stout
