COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The dark chocolate appearance is reminiscent of a porter, and the slightly darkened creamy head tops the look. But the first sip lets you know that this beer can be drank, in quantity if desired (or required?), without leading to an overly full gullet. Intricate malt flavors predominate, with a medium mouth-feel and a very light bitter.

Cheers duffman for this and a host of other Canadian goodies you sent to minutemat. 341 ml bottle shared with Mat on 4th Aug 2016. Brown pour, with a ruby red hue: wispy beige head. Malts rule the roost here with semi-sweet caramel flavours coming through loud and clear. Really enjoyed this, one of the best beers on our little tasting session: my sweet tooth loving the brew straight away.

341ml bottle, shared with blackhaddock in his man cave. Many thanks to Duffman for this. Pours deep mahogany, tan head. Aroma is caramel malt. Taste is smooth deep caramel flavours, some dark fruit shading, a hint of leather. Lovely warming moreish character.

From a 12 oz bottle purchased at the brewery. Pours a clear cola brown with an ecru head. Aroma of dusty leather. Flavors of raisins. Boozy finish.

ljthiessen (1126) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - NOV 10, 2015
Bottle. Dark brown pour with a ruby hue and a thick off-white head. Aroma is chocolate, dark fruit and coffee; some dark cherry and plum notes, raisin, roasty cocoa and coffee. Flavour is sweet dark fruit with some roasty bitterness. A little too sweet perhaps, but very flavourful and a really nice malty English ale.

cmacklin (852) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 2, 2015
341ml bottle. Pours a dark brown with a ruby hue and a medium to large, creamy, long lasting, tan head that laces. Sweet aroma of roasted malt, dark chocolate, caramel and dried fruit. Sweet flavour of roasted malt, dark chocolate, coffee, dried fruit and light spices with a mildly bitter, warming alcohol finish. Medium body with a smooth, oily texture and soft carbonation. Quite porter like. Pretty good.

DeanF (2348) - Alberta, CANADA - AUG 9, 2015
Bottle at the Explorer hotel in Yellowknife. Has a nice soft malt aroma. Appearance is small head with dark velvet-brown body. Flavour is nice heavy barley-coffee with a hint of syrupy sweetness. Has a nice oily mouthfeel which makes it quite heavy on the palette. It’s a pretty good darker ale and paired well with the elk steak I had that evening.

Nice one from Yukon! Not normally a fan of Porters but this one was different enough to be enjoyable. Had a nice roasted malt flavour with a smooth drinkability.

manuelMTL (240) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 1, 2015
Pours a dark brown with almost no head. Nose is malty with hints of chocolate. Great malty taste with some roastiness and coffee notes. Medium bitter finish. A bit metallic. Good balance.

Couleur du caramel très foncer avec un petit col tan très stable. L’arôme du malt et caramel. En bouche c’est presque onctueux avec du malt, pain et caramel, avec une finition très bien équilibré. Très bien fait.
