look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

12 oz. brown bottle. Brewed & Bottled in Canada.

S: Pours a deep black with a foamy tan head, about one finger.
Nice retention until the end. Lacing is good, not great. Overall
this stout looks enticing.

S: Sharp sweetness with roasted coffee and other grains. Mild
hops. This could be better.

T/M: Smooth, creamy with a semi-crisp feel. Sweet, flavorful
malts. Hops are present, but small. They do bring in a nice
bitterness. Roasted/burnt flavors. Sweet to dry finish.

O: A pretty basic stout, with good taste and a great look. Better
than Guinness Drought. Easy to drink. lets just say I would never
turn one of these down.

Cheers!!
