4.58/5 rDev +12%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75
A: Very dark black and quiet opaque. Some very dark reddish brown hints when really pressed against light. Nice one finger head that retains itself very well and leaves some good looking lacing up the side of the glass.
S: Roasted malts, very dark coffee and some milk chocolate almost. Maybe a little bit of butter in the smell as odd as that sounds too.
T: Quite bold tasting. Rich lush tasting roasted malts that give off some delicious coffee flavors. Dark chocolate is also present. Bitterness is not overpowering and the beer balances well.
M: Good carbonation. Thick bodied and rather filling (Perhaps because of the oats). Hits the tongue sweet and finishes bitter and dry leaving you lusting for another sip.
Overall: Very good beer. First time I tried it was with oysters and it paired very well. I have bought this beer since and it will probably hold a space in my fridge from now on. Pretty cheap in my neck of the woods (I live close to montreal). In fact cheaper than some hyped up macros like Stella and Newcastle. This beer helped me get into stout and it made me stay. Highly recommend it.

3.66/5 rDev -10.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
poured into a tulip glass
(Side note: The production date on the bottle says it was made over 4 years ago)
a - Black body with dark orange tint. Two finger fluffy head. Head color is caramel. Head deflates slowly in the center and then later on the edges to form a half finger, dark latté colored head.
s - Creamy and smokey-cigar smell. Bourbon notes.
t - cream and oats start. Middle is nutty/coffee bean. Finish is milk, coffee, and toffee.
m - Full and smooth. Linger feels like milk or cream lines the mouth
o - Head wasn't as rich and full as I usually like in a stout. The flavor was simple, but tasty. Mouthfeel of the body was very nice, and the best part of this beer.
