The beer pours a nice foamy brown head that dissipates very quickly. The beer itself is a coffee black that looks very nice and is obviously opaque. It's a good look.

The smell is absolutely fantastic. It has a rich and sweet smell with a good chocolate note to it. The sweet nutella chocolate seems to be the centerpiece of the entire thing with a powerful cinnamon and sweet syrup mixing with one another. A present bitter coffee note that keeps it from being too sweet. The cocoa nibs come out a little bit from the chocolate and are fairly noticeable.

The taste is what Canadian Breakfast Stout should have been. The taste has the same notes but the cinnamon seems to come out more than the nutella and cocoa while the syrup is more in the finish than anything else. The coffee is slight but combines well with the syrup.

The feel is pretty good. It's a heavy bodied beer with a very slick feel with very light carbonation and a good syrup like thickness.

Overall, a fantastic beer and another home run for Aslin. It's sweet and sugary but with the right amount of bitternes to offset it.
