River Brew Review: Ska Brewing Steel Toe Stout

Aimee CB
It’s almost Christmas, it’s cold and it’s been snowing so, no, we didn’t fish today, we got up in the backcountry. The weather was breezy with scattered clouds, but the skiing was pure awesomeness. Below is a pic of Aimee shredding the pow. Not bad, not bad at all.

After the ski we headed back to the house, I had some chores to do and the Patriots were on the radio, it was time to try a new beer. I had been feeling like a stout and had picked up Ska Brewing’s Steel Toe Stout: Working class Milk Stout earlier in the week and it was time to crack one open.

Steel Toe LabelSka Brewing is located in Durango, Colorado and they offer a full range of delicious beers. While perusing their website for history on the beer I found the following quote and had to include it!

It’s as though a cow stared into the face of God and as God told it the meaning of life we grabbed its udders and squeezed out a bucket.

Hilarious! And I have to agree, if you like Milk Stouts this beer is definitely for you.
Steel toe stout

Appearance: Very dark, almost black. Little to no head.

Smell: Starts with sweet chocolate, has a bit of coffee as well.

Taste/Mouthfeel: Malty and chocolaty, with a bit of a sweet coffee aftertaste. Smooth and slick, minimal carbonation.

Overall: I like it. I like milk stouts in general and this one is definitely tasty. The sweetness would keep me from drinking more than a couple at a time, but for a special winter treat it’s hard to beat.
