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.

Bulk_Carrier (2571) - Temporarily, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 19, 2014
From my haul down from Whitehorse earlier this month. This one was poured into a snifter. The appearance was a black color with a slim glazing of an off white foamy and bubbly head that dissipated rather quickly. Light speckled lacing ran all around my glass. The smell was a bit roasty, a little bit of rich caramel coated nuts and a light running bitter coffee all combine to enliven my nose, definitely English by nature. The taste was roasty and sweet through the nuts and caramel backed up by the bitter coffee to balance. Light chocolate came in as well. On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body as I found myself sipping this. The carbonation was there but nothing overbearing. A nice bitter invasiveness rolls over my tongue. Overall, I really liked this beer and am glad to have another one going into winter.

presario (4828) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 2, 2006
Frothy head on a dark ruby beer. Porter-like malt nose. Complex malt. Stout-like. Swear there is a light cherry taste in the finish. Hints of chocolate. Is this the stout without the Espresso? Toasty and tasty. A nice winter warmer.

grimreeser (797) - Minnesota, USA - NOV 14, 2006
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.

DuffMan (7616) - 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.

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!

Lady_Bastet (113) - Burlington, Ontario, CANADA - APR 22, 2010
Poured from the bottle in Whitehorse, YT. Creamy, tan head and deep, chocolate appearance, reminiscent of a porter perhaps. Subtle aroma of malt and chocolate with a medium body and heavier malt notes throughout. Lively carbonation with a smooth finish make this an easy drinking beer, probably my favourite of Yukon Brewery’s offerings thus far.

BeerandBlues2 (10606) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 4, 2013
Bottle @ Calgary Beer Fest. Pours clear brown with a medium, fizzy tan head, medium retention with light lacing. Aroma is caramel, nutty and toast malt, dates and figs with earthy hops. Flavor is malt dominant, light hops and bitterness with dark fruits and a sweet finish. Full body and medium carbonation.

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
