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.

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.

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.

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 (11232) - 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.

manuelMTL (238) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 1, 2015
Pours a dark brown with almost no head. Nose is malty with hints of chocolate. Great malty taste with some roastiness and coffee notes. Medium bitter finish. A bit metallic. Good balance.

Oakes (13594) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 27, 2005
Hazelnut brown colour. Nutty, chocolatey aroma. The flavour is moderate for a strong ale, and certainly I’d hope for bigger if I wanted to survive a Yukon winter. It’s a little chocolatey, with hints of nuts and light coffee notes.

turboespresso (256) - Port Moody, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 3, 2010
Bottle. Translucent cola colored ale with minimal ring around glass. Fruity (raisin, plum) aroma. Medium body. Taste is slightly fruity, with trace of roast malt. Carbonation is mellow but persistent. Alcohol taste is well masked.

fiulijn (16462) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 6, 2014
Bottle from Darby’s Liquor Store
Brown color with medium sized head. Immediate aroma of caramel, dark bread, some spices, dust. Good body strength; the mouthfeel is rather dry; the flavor focuses on the dark caramel, followed by a light spicy touch, rye bread, dust; ending with moderate to strong bitterness and light astringency.
Nothing special, but could be ok with food.
