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.

jercraigs (8334) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 6, 2004
Dark brown witha moderate tan head. Aroma is dark roasty malt, and the flavour has delicious chocolatey notes and sweet malt. Slightly roasty bitterness in the finish. A very pleasant way to start things off. Mondiale 3T (Me).

DuffMan (7620) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 20, 2006
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.

j12601 (7456) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - OCT 10, 2010
Bottle at Andy’s courtesy of Joe. Pours brown with a thin white head. Nice nutty malt, sweet light roast. Flavors of sweet caramel, and nice nuttiness in the malt. Long sweet roast and malt on the finish. Tasty stuff.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUN 15, 2004
In bottle at the Mondial de la Bière 2004: Dark copper brown color with a dense light tan head. Sweet bready caramel aroma has a touch of hoppy bitterness. Full, thick malty body has a nice hopped balance, sweet toffee and lightly roasted malt flavor, and a smooth finish. A very nice beer and from the Yukon of all places!

Ferris (7011) - 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.

Radek Kliber (6600) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - JUN 7, 2004
Creamy head, thick. Dark brown chocolate malt is dominant, woody feel. This ale was full bodied, clean with nice good depth. Alcohol was well blended, supported well coffee like finish. Very pleasant dark ale.

blankboy (6444) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 22, 2008
<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.

HogTownHarry (6199) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - DEC 1, 2008
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.

egajdzis (5515) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 26, 2007
Poured a red amber color with a medium sized, light tan head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of oxidation, nuts, molasses, honey, and light smoke. Taste of citrus fruits, DMS, cocoa, light caramel, cardboard, with a bit of toffee in the finish.

Boutip (5060) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 12, 2004
Bottle: Poured a clear dark copper beer with a huge head with good retention. Aroma is quite malty with some noticeable roastiness. Taste is very interesting with some notes of roastiness coming in at first and ending with a balanced bitterness. No too complex beer overall, but a good example of the style.
