On tap at Barley Brothers. Pours a clear deep amber brown with a tan head head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has notes of dark bread and grains with some roasted malts and a hint of chocolate. Flavor has notes of sweet dark grain and sweet chocolate with a hint of roasted malts.

Pitch black with a tiny brown ring of foam. A little roasted, some hot chocolate and milk, alcohol. Balanced. Medium to full body, slick with a soft carbonation.

Silky smooth. Just the right amount of bitter. Had it with steak and fries and salad..perfect

HippyHop (433) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 28, 2015
500ml bottle, aged 18 months. Pour is black with a small cap the colour of espresso crema. Nose is chocolate, molasses, roasted grain, coffee, faint booze. This stuff is sweet and creamy, but it’s also weirdly thin, given the style and 9% ABV. Tastes and aromas are all on par, but it lacks some oomph and body. I’m also kind of disappointed with how this has aged. Still decent.

Pours a dark brown colour, almost black, with a beige head and some good lacing. Grainy aromas with roasted malts, notes of chocolate, coffee, molasses, grass and caramel. Because of the high alcohol content (being imperial) the milk part does not show anymore. Sweet taste with the roasted malts in the finish. Butterscotch hints and grain. I really hope they did not really discontinue the none-imperial version as that one was awesome.

venom666 (544) - Elche, SPAIN - FEB 16, 2015
UPDATED: APR 2, 2015 Jet black color with generous beige head. Aroma is chocolaty, with espresso, caramel and roasted malts. Very silky. Taste is roasty, with cocoa, coffee and caramel, very balanced with the lactose and a slightly bitter finish.

Excellente Stout impériale. Tout ce qu’on peut demandé dans le style. Café, chocolat, crème, légère amertume des houblons. Sucré. Tout est agréable est bien dosé.

BrewGoblin (544) - Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - DEC 28, 2014
Dang good, but not my MOOOOOooost favourite Sweet Stout. It smells like a more bitter, boozed and coffee’d up chocolate milk. That’s a good thing I reckon. Pours bliggity black with a foamy tan head that hits the hay quick but leaves a dreamy lacing. The taste is bittersweet, hints of booze creep through but are overwhelmed by tasty and rich chocolate and light coffee. The milkiness is definitely present in both sweetness and texture; a silky smooth and low carbonated onyx potion pervades the mouth. A fun brew to moo moo moo munch on.

This is one heavy hitting brew. Pours jet black with a large creamy tan head. Aromas of sweetened dark chocolate, coffee, caramel, and a wee bit of booze. Theres a medium-full body with average carbonation and a slightly oily mouthfeel. Tastes pleasantly sweet, but not overly so. There is a slight booze flavor, just enough to know its there. Really solid beer.
