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.

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.

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!

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.

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...

500mL Bottle. Noses crisply in slight chocolate, brown sugar and alcohol. A leaf of hop. Pours pitch black with nice finger of tan riding. Flavor is simple. Gentle, yet not-overbearing sweetness, creamy qualities, a light dry roast, and a great fresh gummy leaf hop that gives balance and dries the beer nicely. Not cloying. Hides the alcohol deftly. Really an unfortunate mis-classification due to alcohol content. This is really a rather nice milk stout, but can’t hold par with most Imperial Stouts due to recipe simplicity. Really one of the better milk stouts I’ve had for balance, lactose without too much sweetness, and all around good integration. Thanks Dany!

UPDATED: AUG 3, 2009 Bouteille brune de 500ml, bière noire comme du charbon mousse brune, nez discret, bouche très sucré, ronde, agréable, l’alcool se fait sentir,

500mL bottle purchased about 4 months ago at Jovi in Gatineau for $4. Pours black with a nice velvety creamy brown head. Nice roasted malt aroma. Flavour is initially roasty and toasty, perhaps a bit spicy (or perhaps I shouldn’t have eaten that pepperoni stick before reviewing a beer). There’s a nice tang to the flavour, but when cold, it drops out after that and the aftertaste is a bit thin. Initially, it certainly doesn’t feel like a 9% beer. As it warms, the flavour starts out richer, almost a bit syrupy, and the alcohol seems more noticeable. Definitely let this one warm up. But still, not one of my favourite big stouts.

500mL bottle. Pours your typical beautious Imperial Stout viscous black with a medium sized brown head. Aroma is big on the chocomalt, some sweet lactate, perhaps some piney hops, and anise. Flavour is nice and roasty, less intense than I was expecting, plenty of body what with the lactose. Quite sweet and malty, a bit of ash but without the unpleasant tar and excessive anise I get sometimes from Imperial Stout’s. Quite nice, and thankfully the weather has calmed down enough that a 9% Imperial Stout isn’t totally out of the question. Really nice sweet aftertaste from the lactose, which also gives it very good drinkability for 9% abv. Top notch stuff. Gets an extra appearance point for the syrupy look of the remaining residue at the bottom of the bottle, which is something that to me just SCREAMS true Imperial Stout!
