EnSiFeRuM (501) - Quebec, - APR 26, 2009
Bouteille de 500 ml vieillie 1 an et demie. Nos yeux observent une bière de couleur noire opaque ainsi qu’un col de mousse cappucino imposant, crémeux et durable. Au nez on respire des arômes de grain grillé, d’alcool et de fumé. En bouche le corps est lourd avec une effervescence faible-moyenne. On goûte des saveurs de grain torréfié, de guimauve grillé, de cendre, de sucre avec une légère présence de vieux caramel et pour finir une amertume prononçée ainsi qu’une bonne présence d’alcool.

Metalchopz (2501) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 22, 2015
Pours a dark brown colour, almost black, with a beige head and some good lacing. Grainy aromas with roasted malts, notes of chocolate, coffee, molasses, grass and caramel. Because of the high alcohol content (being imperial) the milk part does not show anymore. Sweet taste with the roasted malts in the finish. Butterscotch hints and grain. I really hope they did not really discontinue the none-imperial version as that one was awesome.

Jet black color with generous beige head. Aroma is chocolaty, with espresso, caramel and roasted malts. Very silky. Taste is roasty, with cocoa, coffee and caramel, very balanced with the lactose and a slightly bitter finish.

Excellente Stout impériale. Tout ce qu’on peut demandé dans le style. Café, chocolat, crème, légère amertume des houblons. Sucré. Tout est agréable est bien dosé.

BrewGoblin (527) - Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - DEC 28, 2014
Dang good, but not my MOOOOOooost favourite Sweet Stout. It smells like a more bitter, boozed and coffee’d up chocolate milk. That’s a good thing I reckon. Pours bliggity black with a foamy tan head that hits the hay quick but leaves a dreamy lacing. The taste is bittersweet, hints of booze creep through but are overwhelmed by tasty and rich chocolate and light coffee. The milkiness is definitely present in both sweetness and texture; a silky smooth and low carbonated onyx potion pervades the mouth. A fun brew to moo moo moo munch on.

shdougan (48) - Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - DEC 26, 2014
This is one heavy hitting brew. Pours jet black with a large creamy tan head. Aromas of sweetened dark chocolate, coffee, caramel, and a wee bit of booze. Theres a medium-full body with average carbonation and a slightly oily mouthfeel. Tastes pleasantly sweet, but not overly so. There is a slight booze flavor, just enough to know its there. Really solid beer.

500 ml bottle. Pours a near opaque brown with a large mocha coloured head. Aromas are chocolate, coffee (subtle), a little bit of black liquorice. Tastes are definite black liquorice, bitter coffee, a little bit of alcohol. Full body, medium carbonation, long bitter coffee finish. Interesting.

Pours nearly complete black with just a hint of ruby around the margins, two fingers of fine beige head diminishing gradually to a thick cap, excellent lacing (5/5). Nose is dark roasty malt, coffee, dark fruit (8/10). Taste is moderate to strong sweet malt, moderate bitter, vinous tang (8/10). Medium body, slightly oily yet sticky texture, soft carbonation, with a lingering bitter finish and gentle alcohol warming (4/5). Not quite what I was expecting and certainly slightly different from other milk stouts I’ve had. That being said, it grows on you after the initial shock. I think it’s the bitterness - despite the lactose sweetness and smoothness, there’s still very strong bitterness present here, manifesting as a coffee astringency, but also a vinous tartness. Tastes much more bitter than the 30IBU rate beer claims, making me wonder if it might benefit from some cellaring time - I’m putting one away for a year or two to see whether that’s the case. Not my favourite example of the style, but certainly not without its charms. (15/20)
