275/1549) Home:  Behind the Wavy Wall Imperial Stout by Great Lakes Brewery of Ontario:  **1/2;  11.9%, 60 ibu;  from Great Lakes' Tank Ten series;  the nose features alcohol and dark coffee;  while there is no oak to speak of, there is a boozy sweetness with a long, bitter finish;  very complex and warming;  almost certainly a candidate for aging;

While we all go mad for Great Lakes' IPAs, this serves as a reminder that when they brew a stout or a porter you can count on it being terrific.
