Ughsmash (7361) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 24, 2009
Bottled. Poured thick, deep brown with a creamy, robust cap of tan head. The aroma picked up milk chocolate and lactic sweetness with some warmth from the alcohol presence.. deeper notes of rich, flourless cake.. decadent and desserty. The flavor was centered around moderately-roasted, slightly sour milk chocolates.. darker chocolates and coffee (malty sweetness and light bitterness) surrounded as well as earthy bitterness.. everything worked well together. Heavier-bodied with a slow, scratchy bitterness cutting through cake-like sweetness.. rolling carbonation.. got even better as it warmed up. Excellent!

Django (16) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 20, 2009
Janv 20, 2009 Bouteille brune de 500ml. Bière achetée 9 mois auparavant et conservée adéquatement. Nez doux évoquant le sucre en poudre ou le lait de poule (Eagle Brand) probablement dû à la présence de lactose dans la bière tel qu’indiqué sur l’étiquette. Col de mousse épais qui se dissipe un peu, mais qui persiste. Liquide noir opaque ne laissant pas passer la lumière. Au goût, c’est doux et sucré avec une légère amertume qui ne prend jamais le dessus. En arrière goût, c’est le sucre qui ressort. On remarque peu la présence de torréfaction dans cette bière. Selon moi, il est davantage question ici d’une sweet stout très alcoolisée que d’une impériale stout selon les caractéristiques gustatives observées. Produit très agréable et bien fait.

martin21 (155) - Quebec city, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 26, 2008
Chocolat avec une touche de cafe, plutot douce. Jamais on ne detecte le haut taux d alcool. Tres fruiter, l ester de banane se discerne le plus. Complexe et delicieuse! Chocolaty with coffee notes, sweet. Never noticed the 9% abv. Lots of fruitiness, with banana ester in proeminance. Very complex and very good!

Beautiful head. Nice balance of bitter and sweet. After a long run of Imperial Stouts, this is a pleasant change of pace. The milk adds a gentle sour note that adds to the complexity.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - OCT 6, 2008
Bottle from Glouglouburp - thanks, Dany! I have to say that this one was mighty impressive. Maybe I shouldn’t have shared it with those fuckers. Anyways, a huge pour with a lovely, dark head. Thick creamy body, with an invitingly fruity and (natch) heavily lactic aroma. Lots of carbonation for a milk stout, Jim! Roasted bitters in the finish complement rather than clash, and the alcohol is hidden quite well. I want more.

Flamojune (113) - Ville de Quebec, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 5, 2008
La meilleur stout que j’ ai bu jusqu’à présent. Chocolaté bitter a l’os. Le café se fait aussi remarquer tout comme l’alcool. Le meilleur est dans la finale: un bon petit gout crémeux qui saura plaire a tous...EXCELLENT!

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - OCT 5, 2008
Bottle shared with JCB (thanks!) and emacgee. Black pour with tan head. Big sweet lactose nose: roasty burnt sugar and roasted marshmallow. Some bitter chocolate and coffee notes. A bit heavily carbonated. This one took a bit to grow on me, but I eventually started to like it quite a bit.

emacgee (4376) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - OCT 3, 2008
Thanks JCB for sharing. Pours a gorgeous ink black brew with a one to two creamy tan head. The nose is very pungent, sweet, lactic, shows a lot of fruitiness as it warms, molasses, sugary. The flavor shows much more roast and bitterness than the nose lets own. Very prominent bittersweet chocolate and roasty bitter coffee flavor, lightly lactic, burnt. The palate has a strong coffee bitterness and some alcoholic warmth.

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - SEP 29, 2008
bottle by way of glouglouburp... opaque nearly black shade of brown with a fairly large sized frothy soft light brown head. it leaves behind some decent lacing trails and rings. big malty chocolate aroma with notes of cooked cream, lightly charred wood, aspirin astringency, dark fruit, a spicy twang, grass and fresh fennel. the palate is less sweet than most. especially considering the milk aspect... chocolate, cooked dry figs, molasses, a savory quality and a dry woody finish which seems a bit metallic. medium body with a slick mouth feel. there’s more carbonation here than need be (definitely more than most) but it keeps it quite drinkable...
