Established in 1989, The Whistler Brewing Company quickly built a reputation for producing some of British Columbias finest craft beers. From the original recipe, this re-release of Whistler Black Tusk Ale is brewed exclusively with Whistler Glacier Water and a special blend of imported chocolate and roasted malts. Brewmasters Notes Appearance: Obsidian black with a creamy, tan coloured head. Aroma: Subtle, malty aroma Palate: A dark, bold English-style mild ale. Expect a mild bitterness with notes of chocolate and a roasted coffee finish. Finish: Delightfully subtle with a refreshing, lingering finish.

Pleasant if undistinguished Dunkel substitute. Very slight roast and caramel flavours with moderate bitter finish. Not bad.

Poured from 650mL bottle. Medium-dark chestnut brown colour with off-white beige head. Light nutty roast malt with very subtle hints of milk chocolate and caramel. Mild and simple.

Ferris (8967) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 28, 2015
Draft - Dark fruit, raisin and chocolate. Deep maroon with a decent light brown head. Taste of raisin and cocoa with a nice sweetness. Not bad for a mild, although a touch on the rich side and abv is a bit high.

Listigovers (573) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 6, 2014
Very dark brown with a creamy head. Not completely opaque. Nice chocolatey smell with roasted grain. Not as heavy as it looks or smells. Tastes a bit old, might just be the tap. Refreshing, slightly stout-like flavour. An okay beer, needs more body to round out the taste, coats the mouth a bit.

CacheManyHose (447) - HONG KONG - JUN 29, 2014
Bottle. Smells of crisp nutty malt, bit of grassy hop. Tastes of malt/corn, thin but crisp body, not as black as I expected.

I get that mild are called milds for a reason but this one is simply too mild, though the intense black of the pour would be fun to spring on people who think all dark beers are intensely roasty malty beasts.
