Well-rounded stout with rich milky chocolate flavors and controlled gentle sweetness. Quite smooth and creamy, can barely feel the alcohol.

Bean (73) - Saint-Eustache, Québec, - JUN 3, 2014
Silky chocolate taste. Nice light coffee nose. A bit sweet for an imperial stout but this helps the drinkability. A go-to beer for both first time black beer experience or a world class imperial stout tasting

manuelMTL (32) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 1, 2014
Dark black colour with a brown, frothy head. Nice lacings. Aroma is lots of chocolat, sweet, roasted malts. Alcohol in the background. On the tongue it’s sweet with chocolate notes. Sweet aftertaste. Medium mouthfeel. Alcohol is well hidden.

Aroma is dark chocolate, sweet malts, some creaminess and light coffee character. Appearance is very dark black with medium thick cream head that retains fairly well.

Smells like a tootsie roll. Great cream choclate and milk combo. Malty. Delicious. Had this from draft at vices versa in Montreal.

Wow, how many times can you name your beer "vache folle"? Like zeleriouslyeee... anyways this pours with a pure black body and a huge dark-beige head.... quite nice in my books! The aroma is slightly burned barley, not heavily burned, but still burned. A bit of barnhouse funk and burnt wood in there on the nose how’mever. The flavour is strong sweet barley milk with a hint of oak, with a sweet and solid finish. Still, it’s not all working together in the right dimensions. A decent and drinkable milk stout however it pains that I must say that it needs attention to detail to transcend the transcensions.

Koelschtrinker (9998) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAR 30, 2014
Vollmundig malziger Antrunk mit weichen Schokoladennoten, die eine milde Süße aufweisen. Der Alkohol scheint dabei etwas durch, süß röstig, schokoladiger werdend. Kaffee, reife Banane. Vollmundiger Nachgeschmack mit leichter Vanille und kurzzeitig brennendem Alkohol. 9/11/9/10/9/9

chris__hartley (274) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 28, 2014
It pours almost opaque dark brown with ruby highlights; the head is tan and mousse-like. The aroma has notes of: hot chocolate, milk-powder, and malty-notes. The taste is medium sweet that finishes lightly bitter; there are notes of: coffee, liquorice, and chocolate. The palate is medium bodied, slick and sticky (almost milk-fatty in consistency), has little carbonation, and a long cloying finish. Overall, decent, and aptly named.

angel77 (787) - oviedo, SPAIN - MAR 18, 2014
Botella de 50cl en el lúpulo 18-03-2014 en el momento. Sabores lactosos bien combinados con tostados y un ligero amargo final. Cuerpo medio, fácil de beber y con 9 vol. Para repetir sin problema.
