2_shaynez (4) - St. Laurent, CANADA - SEP 24, 2014 does not count
Pours black with no light getting through, but a ruby brown shine at the base when tilting glass into light. 1.5 finger mocha head. Unproportional retention, but really beautiful lacing! Like picture worthy lacing! Nose: Fresh Skim Milk, Coffee, Chocolate. Taste: Something I cant put my finger on!!!! Its probably the first taste of the lactose, which I get right after..coffee & chocolate of course, at 9% ABV im getting a bit of alcohol which is expected, but tolerable. Say in comparison to St. Ambroise who do an imperial stout at 9.2% ABV and its a little hard to drink, but this is perfect. Mouth: Some good body from the lactose, which they do specify on the bottle. Low to low-medium carbonation. A tad of stickiness around the lips. Overall: "SOMETHING DIFFERENT", a good stout with a twist, i think brewing with lactose really sets it apart. Very very good honestly, and at 9% ABV these 500ml bottles will give you a buzz which makes this a nice after-dinner couch beer!

Speedy_Charly (37) - Plaisance, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 16, 2014
Bouteille 500 ml au Marché des Brasseurs - Chénéville, Qc. Noire opaque avec grosse mousse brune et jolie dentelle. L’arôme rappele le chocolat/caramel (Tootsie Roll, comme disait l’autre) avec une pointe de malt torréfié. Un peu trop sucrée en bouche pour une stout, mais le goût chocolaté cache bien l’alcool. Très peu d’amertume en arrière-bouche la finition est toute sucre brun et chocolat doux.

flip_soeperman (620) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 31, 2014
Sweet stout with surprising roasted aroma’s, which are very obvious and good. However, some metal in the taste... medium bodied. Quite good, too bad of the metal.

williamstome (892) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 29, 2014
Black pour, small brown head. Aroma is chocolate milk and cocoa. Flavor is milk chocolate, alcohol, cocoa, honey syrup. A little over sweet.

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 (81) - 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.

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