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.

Pour is very dark with a small creamy head. Nose is of sweet malts. Taste is bitter malts with a sweet backing and a slight bitter aftertaste. Overall not too bad but not my pick of the day.

This was the best of the Yukon beers we tried this evening. Dark and malty. Vanilla and dried fruit. Very tasty.

jercraigs (7878) - 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).

Boutip (4738) - 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.

Thanks for the bottle JoeMcphee. 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.

JoeZasada (289) - Beaumont, Alberta, CANADA - APR 20, 2009
An excellent strong ale. Kind of a chocholate colour, with a light brown head... tastes of caramel and malt... very smooth falvour... Yukon’s best one yet!

Bottle thanks to Joe - Dark pour, nice dark and chocolately. Some grassy grainy and smooth malts, not much bitter. Touch of coffee, bubbly mouthfeel hint of bitterness. Not bad at all.

reebtogi (4214) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 5, 2012
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.
