    Aroma: 9 | Appearance: 7 | Mouthfeel: 8 | Flavor: 8 | Overall: 8

    Deep dark brown body with a huge, I say a huge tan coloured head. Settles but lasts till the end leaving lacing all the way. Faint smell of chocolate milk and wood. Flavour is a little on the sweet side but full and tasty. Milk chocolate, coffee, vanilla and caramel. Also has a touch of spice. Full body is silky smooth and creamy. Very drinkable and surprisingly goes well with a bacon butty.

    Poured a froathy, chocolat milk coloured head with great head, great retenttion and would leave a great lacing too. Some fine bubbles rest overtop. Aroma very weak, this aspect seemingly overlooked completely by the brewer....Body a little overcarbonated maybe but very creamy. A murky, chocolat milk like flavour. Not the chocolat flavour you find in most stouts nowadays, but more towards the chocolat milk taste. I detected a slight smokey character that sorta muddy up and mixed into the mouthfeel. While faint, I personally could have done without. Not bold smoke, more like drinking while breathing in campfire smoke. There was an absence of coffee or burnt malt aswell. Only a half-roasted flavour. This left the beer with very little flavour to rely on, and any taste at all needed some hard searching to find.

    Well, that was different. Pours a dark black with a creamy tan head that has OK retention, weak for a stout though. Aromas of milk chocolate and malt are the most noticeable but not very strong. Mouthfeel is X-tremely smooth with very slight carbonation. Flavors of chocolate but mostly milk and chocolate are the most apparent. I'll get this again, when I can find it again.

    Is it weird that I tend to enjoy Stouts more during the Summer, when it's hot and nasty? Or am I the weird one...? ;^) Either way, Stouts like this tend to find a welcome mat out at my place during the Summer -- yes, even rather frilly/fluffy Sweet Stouts such as this one from Quebec.

    Popped this open while making a yeast starter (for brewing an American Pale Ale Sunday). Came out quite foamy.... I had to break this sampling into two, since the 500mL + foam wouldn't fit into one glass....

    Once the foam subsided a bit, I was able to get a good read on this beer. And what is their to say about this? Well... let's cover the highlights, shall we?

    Quite sweet and chocolately -- more like a chocolate shake that you let melt on your way home from the ice cream shop than anything else. Some roastiness here and there, but not nearly enough to really take notice.

    Would have liked to have seen the hops step up a bit, too. Yes, I know this isn't meant to be all that bitter anyway. But some balancing nuetral hops in the background would be a nice touch.

    Soft and fluffy in the mouthfeel -- kinda dull in that regard, I have to say. Maybe I'm just not cut out for such frilly Sweet Stouts, eh?

    Not repulsive, but just not my thing. I want a Stout to remind me of my first morning coffee, not my ice cream desert.

    Bottle: Poured a clear dark stout with a huge bubbly off white head with better then standard retention. Aroma of light chocolate is kind of weak. Taste has a very creamy texture with some chocolate also detectable. No hops are discernable which result in low mouthfeel points. Overall, this is quite enjoyable but not overpowering in any way which seems to be the fashion for stout these days.

    My friend bought this one in Quebec city. Looks almost like soda... dark and clean. The aroma is spicy with some ginger, mixed with caramel. The taste cuts fast, not being to long with no aftertaste. Mouthfeel is light... no character. Lacks creaminess overall.

    This milk stout pours a dark brown with red highlights. The aroma is awesome with full chocolat and hints of caramel. The taste is mostly coffee, especially in the finish and aftertaste. There is slight molasse and some bitterness. Very smooth mouthfeel and quite creamy. I would say that the aroma is this brews best thing, but overall, a real pleasant creamy stout.

    Half liter "subbie" bottle: Poured a black viscous ale in the glass...modest carbonation...small mocha head....smells delicious..sweet, chocolaty. some coffe..light grass tones. Mouth feel is viscous..syrupy....good malt backbone and all the cocoa/coffee toasty stout tastes but toned back with a soft rounded taste profile from the lactose. Not a cloyingly sweet drink bit very sweetish, toasty chocolatey and mild....nice effort.
