martin21 (155) - Quebec city, Quebec, - 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!

Koelschtrinker (9995) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAR 30, 2014
Vollmundig malziger Antrunk mit weichen Schokoladennoten, die eine milde Süße aufweisen. Der Alkohol scheint dabei etwas durch, süß röstig, schokoladiger werdend. Kaffee, reife Banane. Vollmundiger Nachgeschmack mit leichter Vanille und kurzzeitig brennendem Alkohol. 9/11/9/10/9/9

It pours almost opaque dark brown with ruby highlights; the head is tan and mousse-like. The aroma has notes of: hot chocolate, milk-powder, and malty-notes. The taste is medium sweet that finishes lightly bitter; there are notes of: coffee, liquorice, and chocolate. The palate is medium bodied, slick and sticky (almost milk-fatty in consistency), has little carbonation, and a long cloying finish. Overall, decent, and aptly named.

Botella de 50cl en el lúpulo 18-03-2014 en el momento. Sabores lactosos bien combinados con tostados y un ligero amargo final. Cuerpo medio, fácil de beber y con 9 vol. Para repetir sin problema.

Deep dark black pour with a foamy and frothy mocha cap. Leaves nice spotty lace. Nose is quite lactic, milk chocolate, some roasty components, coffee beans, and fresh hops. Tastes of coffee, milk chocolate, lactic, roasty malts with some young hops. Creamy with good drinkability.

dandeman (451) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 1, 2014
En olfactif, on y remarque au départ quelques fruits (raisins secs et prunes) , bien accompagnés de chocolat au lait, se changeant en chocolat noir et en café au fur et à mesure de son évolution. On y décèle également du caramel brulé ainsi que de la mélasse. Des arômes agréables et complexes. Le visuel est noir, opaque, la mousse épaisse dense et crémeuse, avec une longue persistance. Elle colle bien au verre et y laisse quelques traces. L’attaque est douce et chaleureuse, avec des notes de chocolat au lait, de raisins secs, de mélasse, de café au lait et de cassonnade. L’alcool est bien dosé, chaleureux, enveloppant et offre un soutient constant aux saveurs lacto-sucrées. En finale, un houblonnage modéré lui confère une légère amertume résineuse, contrebalançant et équilibrant l’aspect lactique. En bouche, elle présente une texture ronde et corpulente, une effervescence moyenne et un équilibre è point. Une bière très agréable à boire.

On draught at the underground. Nice head - but a little lacking in the lactose taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.
