Bought a six-pack at Broue-Ha-Ha in Gatineau, Quebec. For whatever reason, I was not impressed with my first try at this, but subsequent bottles - on different nights ! - have been good. Dark colour, no light coming through, not much head. Sweet, boozy aroma. Flavourful stout with a nice booziness to it.

Opaque black color. Thick creamy brown 2 finger head lasting around 10 minutes. Average head and no visible activity.

Strong aromas and flavors of roasted nuts and coffee, cocoa, vanilla, slightly spicy and metallic. Rich earthy and sweet vinous smell but more of a sharp highly roasted taste.

Creamy milky body with perfect carbonation. Well balanced finish ending with a bitter smoky chocolate cappuccino like aftertaste.

Overall : Promising craft but a bit unbalanced with excessively bitter roasted taste (missing some sweetness) and slightly off with freshness being a little metallic.

Bottle poured into a tulip enjoyed at Beer Revolution in Calgary. A pitch black brew with a rich, dense, creamy mocha colored head, maybe three fingers worth. Billing makes it sound like a milk stout on performance enhancers. Does look the part.

Aroma is rich with milk chocolate, cappuccino, and tiramisu with hints of caramel and red licorice. Decadent. Taste largely reflects the spectacular nose, huge chocolate cake initially followed by a vibrant coffee bean element. Thick and rich milkshake-like body only adds to the dessert impression. Some caramel malts in the background. Maybe a whiff of burnt marshmallow. Finishes with more sweetness and just a little dark roast. Alcohol is detectable and makes one think of a coffee liqueur.

Where did this come from (yes, Quebec ... I know!)? Certainly a worthy find for a guy craving something sweet after a previous run of heavy hops. If I had to complain, the sweetness could be dialed down just a hair in favor of the coffee. I am a picky ass when it comes to coffee stouts, though. Usually they are too burnt. This is the way to err.

Black. A rich mocha colored head, very dense in construction. Coffee aroma backed rich roasted malt. Tastes very similar one of my homebrew stouts. Roasted barley, Coffee, ever so slight hints of coffee. Roast is dominant. That being said the coffee is more a kin to a roasted barley imitation of coffee and not the actual coffee bean itself, even though there is real coffee in this. Charred would be an accurate description. Lactose makes for a thicker richer feeling body. Overall a nice beer although the advertised non typical elements (Coffee, cocoa nibs, lactose) don't play as much of a role as i kind of feel they should.
