Had this on tap at the brewery then again on tap at the Wellington Gastropub in Ottawa. Chatting with a dude who works at the brewery, it sounded like this was a Péché Mortel-influenced beer. After trying it, it really does seem like they did their best to clone Canada's top-rated beer. And they did a damn good job. Amazing dark coffee aroma, full bodied smooth mouthfeel, and a pleasant roasty lingering taste. Great stuff!

Serving type: on-tap

3.64/5  rDev -6.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Jet black, one finger of tan head, lots of lace here as well, nice looking stout. Smell is of cold coffee and roast, liquorice, fairly heavy hop profile with a lot of dark chocolate. Taste is of coffee and chocolate, fairly bitter, roasty, quite hoppy, bruised dark fruits, a bit of liquorice, slightly astringent. Lightly carbonated, fairly full chewey body. Not bad but largely forgetable, everywhere else in the world this hoppy coffee stout would be classified as an "American Imperial Stout" but in Vankleek Hill, ON this is what a RIS is I guess but perhaps I'm splitting hairs here.

2.95/5  rDev -24.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

Bottle: Poured a clear dark black color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some minor lacing. Aroma of dry strong coffee notes with light floral touch. Taste is also dominated by strong coffee notes with an almost astringent finish with dry roasted malt also clearly identifiable. Body is a bit light for style with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Bitter roasted malt are just too astringent for me to really enjoyed this beer.

4.39/5  rDev +12.6%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: It has a nice jet black color to it. It has a nice thick creamy mocha head that dies down moderately slow and leaves some lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of coffee, chocolate, rich roasted malts, some molasses, caramel and faint dark fruit.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has a some rich coffee, dark chocolate, roasted malts, an espresso like bitterness, molasses and faint dark fruit.

Mouthfeel: It has a low carbonation with a very nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied by great flavors and aromas. Props to David Thompson for making this great Russian Imperial Stout.
