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.

Savvy1982 (1705) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 23, 2009
Bottle. Pours medium brown with a reddish flash. Thick off-white/pale tan head with spotty/ropey lacing. Nose is fruit, malt, caramel, toffee, cinnamon, ginger. Palate is smooth and soft, nice sweetness. Rich and mildly spicy, plenty of stewed fruit, caramel, and nuts. Very tasty, a surprise from Yukon!

Reimer96 (1642) - Alberta, CANADA - MAR 9, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 15, 2014 Pours a clear ruby brown color with a creamy brown head that dissipates quickly. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malts, nuts, slight caramel and some sweet dried fruits. Taste is roasted malts, chocolate, nuts and finishes off with a light bitterness. Excellent english Olde.

gramity (1582) - 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.

bulldogops (1373) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 6, 2010
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.

WheatKing (1328) - Phnom Penh, CAMBODIA - 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.

manuchampions (1243) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 15, 2010
12oz bottle from Firefly in Vancouver. Couldn’t find the word "Chilkoot" anywhere on the bottle label or the box...what is that about? Pours a porter-like cola brown with decent tan head that last well. Aroma is slightly sweet with strong malt notes of caramel, cocoa, some leather. Taste is fairly thick with malts, toffee (?), slight hit of alcohol, hops subdued but there in the finish. Sweeter than I like. Reminds me a lot of a porter. It’s decent but not outstanding.

HeistAlmighty (1156) - Saint John, New Brunswick, CANADA - JUL 20, 2013
Sample at Picaroon's Brewer's Bash. Milk chocolate brown colour. Odd duck this one. Very English tasting, malty and complex. One could probably taste whatever one wanted somewhere in there. Overall, it works reasonably well and is worth a try. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Couleur du caramel très foncer avec un petit col tan très stable. L’arôme du malt et caramel. En bouche c’est presque onctueux avec du malt, pain et caramel, avec une finition très bien équilibré. Très bien fait.
