3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Malty, fruity caramel aroma with notes of chocolate and roasty dark malts, if you’re looking hard. Clear dark amber-brown with decent tan head that recedes to cover. Bittersweet chocolate malt flavours with a decent balancing bitterness. Some alcohol noticeable in the finish. Body perhaps a touch on the thin side for a winter warmer but not bad. I had it at Bottlescrew Bills in Calgary.

Amazing winter beer from Yukon Brewing company. Everything I have had from this brewery has been outstanding. This beer smells nutty and caramelly with hints of mollases and maybe coffee. Pours a light stout like beer with a small head. Tastes as amazing as it smells. Need to try this beer and others from Yukon brewing co.

A gift from Sammy. Black in the pour with excellent lacing. Looked more like a stout and tasted nutty. A very nice warming drink.

Roasty aroma, pours blackish withs oem white head and lace drops in glass following drinking up. Mollasses, licorice and some coffee grounds so characteristics of a porter, a brown, an old ale. Above average carbonation.Very decent

This rich dark brew offers up notes of toffee, dark fruit, dark chocolate and butterscotch. It is perhaps a bit hoppier than what one might expect for the style . For 7% it also drinks bigger with a warming finish. I could see this being an excellent beer for those cold Artic nights.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a very dark reddish brown with a light tan head. Has a sweet bready aroma, a little cherry, some caramel, surprisingly complex. Unfortunately the flavor seems a little bland, a light uninteresting sweetness. Palate seems slighty thin as well.

Copper red-brown, clear, with a moderate almond head. Rich malty aroma, a little whiskey mash too. Sweet toffe malt on the palate, again an underlying whiskey element and a mildly bitter finish. Not too heavy despite the alcohol. Very balanced, drinkable, and delicious. Much like an old-school porter.
