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!

Dark brown with a medium head. It has a very fruity aroma like it was a Belgian strong dark ale. A hybrid between a stout and a Dark Belgian. Why not. The taste is medium sweet and on the chocolate side. Dairy is well present. It’s a good one. Slightly different then a usual RIS or Milk Stout. Like I said ...why not.

On tap at Le Temps d’une Pinte, why did I order that?! Pours a dark brown with a small white head that leaves good lacing. Nose is of straight chocolate. Taste is fruity, almost like red fruits, roasted malt and lactose. Not too sweet and far from cloying, really. Body is medium-medium-full and carbonation moderate. OK, not as good as I remembered it being.

Bottle from the brewpub enjoyed two nights later in a beer wasteland.
Rich creamy smooth chocolate and roasty caramel with just a hint of sweetness. Nice beer!

Pitch black with a tiny brown ring of foam. A little roasted, some hot chocolate and milk, alcohol. Balanced. Medium to full body, slick with a soft carbonation.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle, aged 18 months. Pour is black with a small cap the colour of espresso crema. Nose is chocolate, molasses, roasted grain, coffee, faint booze. This stuff is sweet and creamy, but it’s also weirdly thin, given the style and 9% ABV. Tastes and aromas are all on par, but it lacks some oomph and body. I’m also kind of disappointed with how this has aged. Still decent.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

UPDATED: APR 2, 2015 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.
