Tom Green Summer Stout

Blonde Stout 5% ABV

Tom Green Beer Milk Stout is going blonde for the summer! Tom Green Summer Stout is a sun-kissed golden ale with roasty and rich stout-like flavour. It is brewed with cacao nibs, and infused with organic fairtrade Colombian coff¬ee roasted locally at Ottawa’s Bridgehead Roastery. A hint of sweetness is contributed by the milk sugar (lactose) that makes a milk stout special.

History & Style

A blonde stout (also known as a golden stout) achieves an almost magical juxtaposition of appearance and experience, by infusing a brilliant, clear golden ale with stout-like aromas and flavours of coff¬ee and cacao. The coffee used in Tom Green Summer Stout is a medium-roast organic fairtrade coffee from the Colombian municipality of Piendamó. It was roasted by Ottawa’s Bridgehead Roastery and features flavours of chocolate, caramel, vanilla and roasted marshmallow.

Tasting Notes

Tom Green Summer Stout pours clear golden-blonde with white foam. Coff¬ee and cacao provide their classic aromas to this beer. The mocha flavour notes are supplemented by subtle berry nuances. The finish is mildly sweet and lingering.
