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.

RichardGretton (4229) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2012
Bottle@Fiddle River, Jasper, Canada. Reddish brownish black beer with a strong light brown head. The aroma is lightly malty, and the flavour is malty with some molasses and vinous notes. Overall a pretty average ale, but I've had a beer from the Yukon. Well pleased with that. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

WheatKing (1279) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 8, 2012
Sampled at the GCBF. Dark ruby-brown, mild spidering. Aroma is malt, bitter, and sour. Taste is round simple dark ale with a bitter background. The taste is actually quite good, but the sourness in the aroma turns me off. It might be dirty lines, it might be a slightly off batch, but it is what it is.

Ferris (3084) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 30, 2012
Bottle - Dark sweet earthy fruIt, figs and sourness. Rotated malts also on the nose. Dark brown, almost black, with minimal head. Sweetness coming from figs, raisins, cherries and a very mild bitterness. A bit syrupy, served warm would go great with a dessert. I couldnt drink more than one, if one at all. If you could compare a beer to a port this would be the one.

Pour is very dark with a small creamy head. Nose is of sweet malts. Taste is bitter malts with a sweet backing and a slight bitter aftertaste. Overall not too bad but not my pick of the day.

reebtogi (4109) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 5, 2012
341ml bottle pours dark brown in color with a creamy off-white head that leaves some thin lacing on the glass. Aroma is dominated by roasted malts. Taste is roasted malty bitterness with some malty sweetness as well finishing with a light hoppy bitterness. Medium body and nice carbonation leave a pleasing mouthfeel. This is my favorite from this brewery.

gramity (1307) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 31, 2011
Poured a very dark brown with a thin tan head. The aroma is very roasty. The flavour is initially roasted malt followed by a nice sweetness and just a hint of bitterness on the finish. Very enjoyable.

Bottle thanks to Joe - Dark pour, nice dark and chocolately. Some grassy grainy and smooth malts, not much bitter. Touch of coffee, bubbly mouthfeel hint of bitterness. Not bad at all.
