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.

Clear dark brown with a minor red hue, poured a nice tan head that, after sitting for 10 minutes, had left a nice hilly and smooth cap that had excellent retention. Constant effervecence. Had a good warm burnt aroma with mild coffee notes, a touch of chocolate and solid hops. Good balance. Good burnt smell! I could taste the alcohol, but this was not a deterrent. I like this! It’s got lots of flavour with burnt coffee and possibly chocolate as well. I drank this at room temperature. Feels thick. Nice solid burnt and bitter aftertaste that remained after every sip. A lot better than I first thought.

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.

bulldogops (1028) - 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.

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.

12 oz. bottle brought back to AZ by my mother-in-law - Pours a brown color with a nice light tan head. Light lacing. Has a very light roasted malt aroma. Has a nice roasted chocolate flavor. Medium body. Seems more like a Porter than an English Strong. A good beer. Thanks Ma V.

Roasty aroma, pours blackish withs oem white head and lace drops in glass following drinking up. Mollasses, licorice and some coffee grounds so characteristics of a porter, a brown, an old ale. Above average carbonation.Very decent

manuchampions (1228) - 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.

341ml brown bottle. Dark brown in colour. Head is small but creamy, off white in colour. Decent lacing. Nose has some sweet chocolate malt, faint roasted malt. Flavour has some bold dark malts, pretty roasty, some dark chocolate. Late bitterness. Ends with some lingering roast malt. Medium body and carbonation. Smooth for 7%.

Lubiere (9438) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 27, 2013
A clear brown ale with a thin mocha head. In aroma, a smooth and powdery chocolate malt with nutty notes, and a touch of licorice. In mouth, a nice sweet nutty malt with chocolate notes, roasted notes, a bit peaty. Nice. Shared with GRM. Merci Sylvain.
