Black pour, frothy tan head. Aroma of liquorice, dark chocolate, coffee, molasses, a hint of black cherry. A little syrupy. Sweet throughout, although not overly so. ABV is there, but not overpowering. Slight bitterness on the finish. Nicely balanced and complex milk stout.

Bière noire présentant à peine quelques reflets rougeâtres à la lumière, l’effervescence semble moyenne, et le col est brun, plutôt mince mais dense et mousseux, et il colle sur les parois du verre. Arômes intenses de torréfaction, beaucoup de chocolat noir, du café, avec un peu de malt grillé, de caramel, de mélasse, quelques effluves plus fruité (raisins, prunes…), un léger boisé, et des pointes de levure et de houblon floral. Pas nécessairement très complexe comme nez, mais certainement intense et agréable. En bouche, c’est un peu pétillant sur la langue, un peu mousseux, et la rondeur et l’onctuosité au palais sont très bien, mais je m’attendais à un peu mieux sur ce point de cette bière brassée avec du lactose. Au goût, c’est à la fois doux et intense, la torréfaction domine moins qu’au nez, mais ça reste très chocolat noir, un peu café-dessert, et le malt caramélisé est bien présent, le tout sans que la bière ne soit exagérément sucrée. On retrouve le léger fruité (de la prune surtout), et un faible houblon floral en finale amenant une amertume tout aussi faible. Bref, la bouche rejoint pas mal le nez, moyennement complexe, intense et agréable, un excellent produit!

Pours a motor oil black with a thin foamy off white cap. The aroma is roasted malts, mocha, cream, cherry. The flavour is a smooth blend of everything the nose promises, with a lingering mix of anise, and millk chocolate on the finish. Not mind blowing, but delicious.

plaugher (243) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - NOV 22, 2013
12oz in a snifter glass on tap at Stillwell. Pours a deep black with a light tan head. Light roasty and caramel nose. A roasty flavour with a bit of caramel and some milk chocolate. A delightul creamy milky mouthfeel on the palate. Not boozy at all. Delightful beer.

My first ever milk stout pours jet black with a substantial rocky cap. Wow. What a slender & silky sipper this is. I get thick cocoa, double-double coffee & the slight reverb of caramel. Fantastic brew. Mouthfeel is velvet. Alcohol is on stealth here. The PRO here is the silken texture & flavourful balance. The CON here is the lack of imperial stout ’boom’ that I love about the style.

Couleur Noire intense avec un col assez épais beige résistant. Nez e café mais avec un arômes bizarre que je ne suis pas capable de déterminer. Pas vraiment agréable. En bouche café,chocolat, malt grillé. Légère amertume. Bière juste correct je m’attendais a plus vu les commentaires.

Milk chocolate, sweetness, roasted malt, not overly complex but smells nice. Dark black with a long lasting brown head, looks quite nice. Tastes quite delicious, with some sweetness and leafy hop character upfront while finishing with nice roasted malt notes and a caramelized sugar sweetness. Medium/light bodied and average carbonation. Hides it’s alcohol content very well, would never know this is an imperial without looking at the ABV. Good stuff.

bottle. Pours dark black, thick tan head with good lacing. Coffee, roast, sweet caramel. Well balanced and creamy. Quite good.
