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.

<i>Bottle (341ml) shared with GregClow, HogTownHarry & garthicus -- courtesy of GregClow.</i> Pours a very deep ruby-orange with a spare diminishing off-white head. Aroma of caramel malt, dark fruit, alcohol and maybe a hint of chocolate. Flavour follows the aroma but is slightly milder and more subtle. Average bodied. A good, enjoyable Ale.

UPDATED: JAN 18, 2009 Bottle (341ml). Shared by GregClow with me, blankboy and garthicus. Clear ruby-amber pour with a quick-diminishing frothy off-white head. Aroma or maple syrup and dried out herbal hops. The taste is much more bitter than sweet, dry, almost like fall leaves. Average bodied, slick, weakly syrupy, leaving a burnt aftertaste. Too sweet - weird.

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.
