341 mL bottle, courtesy of DoubleJ, thanks Jon,
A: Pours a dark brown with a medium cap of literal brown head. Good lacing.
S: Smells like a strong cup of coffee, great smell, nothing more to say.
T: Has all the good flavours of coffee without being overly bitter. The coffee mixes well with the roasted malt, no burnt flavours. Dark chocolate and a light hop characteristic bitterness in the finish.
M: Does not have a huge, thick body, but is real smooth and creamy. The lighter mouthfeel gives it excellent drinkability for its size and style.
D: This is just straight up good beer out of Montreal, Canada. If you don't like it there's something wrong with you. Quite deserving of its top 100 status, a treat.

11.5oz bottle poured into a snifter. 6 and 1 notched on the label of this twist off bottle.
A: Pours a very dark brown appearing pitch black in the glass. A mild khaki tan head sits on top, dissipating in a couple minutes.
S: Initially there is a nice dose of coffee that blends very well with a roasted malt quality. Dark fruit qualities come out more as it warms along with a touch of smokiness.
T: A beer with flavor that builds on you. At first I get a slightly bitter coffee, then a blend of dark fruit comes through. The aftertaste lingers with a great roastiness for a solid 2 minutes after each sip.
M: Very smooth beer. Creamy mouthfeel that slides like velvet over your tongue. Doesn't even seem like an alcoholic beverage. Remarkable.
Overall I am stunned with the complexity yet harmony of this beer. Coffee is just enough to add without overwhelming, hops compliment the coffee and the roastiness just works period.
