Powertrip (1000) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 23, 2010
Sticking true to its guns, this one smells like milk....mixed with dark chocolate, rubber and sea foam. Unbalanced and not noseworthy. Poured ridiculously dark with fizzy dark tall head. Wow....tonnes of dark cocoa immediately smash into the tastes buds like waves. It is the most overpowering experience Iíve had in beer drinking! Funny though, not once does it seem to be too bitter or too much. Rich caramel asserts itself by mid-palate and dances around with roasted malts. A hops aftershow with icing sugar closes the show, now what will we have for a finish? Letís see.....more thunderous chocolate and a sticky mouth (thanks Mr.Milk). 9% they say? I didnít taste the alcohol once!

"Half liter "subbie" bottle: Poured a black viscous ale in the glass...modest carbonation...small mocha head....smells delicious..sweet, chocolaty, roasty, some coffee...light grass tones. Mouth feel is viscous. oily....good malt backbone and all the cocoa/coffee toasty stout tastes but toned back with a soft rounded taste profile from the lactose. Not a cloyingly sweet drink but sweetish, toasty chocolatey and mild....nice effort. "

[2655-20091211] 500mL bottle. Chocolate milk roasted wood grain aroma. Black body with a medium-lasting creamy light tan head. Thick roasted malt grain flavour has a lont sweet roast finish. Full body is a little bitter. Really tasty, solid bitter hints and roast throughout.

Sask89 (508) - Regina, Saskatchewan, CANADA - FEB 28, 2010
UPDATED: MAR 20, 2010 Pours a beautiful black colour with a big frothy mocca head. Aroma is a little sweet and filled with roasted malts, chocolate and some coffee. The taste is somewhat sweet, malty with a nice light bitterness present throughout. Full-bodied, soft carbonation, fairly thick on the palate. Overall this is one of my favourite beers, just excellent.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - FEB 24, 2010
Bottle thanks to daknole sampled on 12/13/09: Pours a mostly opaque with dark mahogany edges and a spotty-lacing dark tan head. Aroma of sweet dark caramel with some light fruity notes and lactose sweetness. Starts with pretty good fullness and rich dark caramel sweetness with a good dark fruity plum complexity and milk chocolate before a smooth semi-sweet finish. An enjoyable and well-balanced brew.

Crel (37) - Regina, Saskatchewan, CANADA - FEB 10, 2010
Has a nice sweet aroma with obvious fruit notes, and the distinct smell of alcohol. Very dark with a long lasting head that is light to medium brown in color. It has a wonderfully sweet flavor with caramel, butterscotch, licorice, and chocolate flavors. Nice big body, feels the way a stout should. In my opinion one of the best stouts out there.

Aroma has bold notes of cocoa and coffee, dark brown, tiny tan head. Flavour is a full on roast coffee, dark chocolate and fine malt. Full bodied, really well balanced, loads of bitterness. Terrific! Thank You Mabel and Jerc.
