look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

So this is Canada's top-rated beer, eh? Let's give it a try. Poured out of a 341ml bottle into a tulip.

Appearance: pitch black body with a thin layer of cinnamon brown film. Silky lacing briefly permeates the glass with each sip. Appetizing.

Smell: chocolate and roasted malts, barley, and coffee beans. Notes of black licorice and alcohol. Very toasty and malty. Lots of chocolate. Nice floral hop aromas. Slightly sweet.

Taste: chewy black coffee beans, roasted malt, and almonds. Espresso, licorice, and vanilla. Dry bitter hops round out the aftertaste with warming alcohol. The taste intensifies and becomes more diverse as the beer warms.

Mouthfeel: smooth, creamy, and full-bodied with tingly carbonation. A rich and velvety mouthfeel (almost leathery). Very dry in the finish. Soothing.

Drinkability: I had high expectations and this did not disappoint. An excellent imperial stout. The alcohol is subtle and, thankfully, there's no caffeine kick. A chewy, complex, and satisfying brew. Well done.

Serving type: bottle
