4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap, Imbibe, early December 2012. Strong chocolate aroma, sweet. Pitch black, good sized head. Taste is terrific and unique - thick creamy imperial stout with a chocolate and with a real lactose-milk taste - I love the creativeness to throw that in here and I love the skill that pulled it off and achieved such a great balance - this . Complex stuff. A winner.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
[Draught at Mugshot Tavern] Pours a dark deep amber-brown with an average size semi-lasting frothy light-brown head. Aroma is roasty, chocolaty and lactic along with coffee and some light hops. Nice malty, chocolaty flavour along with lactic notes, coffee and a moderately big finish. Some hops in the finish. Average bodied. A solid take on the style, well done.

Deep black pour. Tight light brown head. The nose is quite chocolatey and a little bit earthy. Bittersweet chocolate and a rich malt base backing it up. Moderate sweetness and a nice fresh maltiness. A touch of roast on the finish. Really nice stout.

2012-12-22. Black body with a small brown head that fades. 4+ Flavour is pleasant, sweet dark malt, mild roast. Sweet chocolate undertones. Interesting sweetness that I assume is lactose but I wouldn’t know it if not for the hint in the name. 7++ Mild aroma, light roast and muted chocolate. 7 Average plus to medium palate has interesting carbonation. Pretty nice. On tap at Volo, Toronto

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On Tap at Imbibe: puts a deep dark brown - black opaque ale in the tumbler with a thick creamy mocha colored cap. Modest carbonation. On first sight this is an impressive looking brew but the aroma is intoxicating - wonderful lactose-cocoa sweetness with roasty malt and grassy hop undertones. Luxurious rich mouth feel - silken texture. Flavour has a big rush of chocolaty roasty semi sweet flavour in front that gets well balanced with Golding hops midway then a long rich silken chocolate finish that goes lightly dry and bitter in the finish. Extremely flavourful and rich but also very drinkable. One of the most pleasing milk stouts I have tasted.
