3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from a little liquor store in Lendrum Place (by Sunterra and Jack’s). 7%. Dark brown pour with a minimal tan head that fades quickly to a ring. Aroma is toffee, chocolate, vanilla, hint of coffee. Strong malty notes with a hint of light hoppy bitterness in the finish. 7% abv is well disguised as this feel medium-light bodied. A great brew from Whitehorse.
