Bottled sample. Coffee nose with hints of toffee. Dark black hue with small and quickly dissipating head. Very malty flavour with coffee and notes of toffee and maybe nuts. Syrups texture with some sweetness in the finish. Superb.

Cheers duffman for this and a host of other Canadian goodies you sent to minutemat. 341 ml bottle shared with Mat on 4th Aug 2016. Brown pour, with a ruby red hue: wispy beige head. Malts rule the roost here with semi-sweet caramel flavours coming through loud and clear. Really enjoyed this, one of the best beers on our little tasting session: my sweet tooth loving the brew straight away.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Dark brown pour with a ruby hue and a thick off-white head. Aroma is chocolate, dark fruit and coffee; some dark cherry and plum notes, raisin, roasty cocoa and coffee. Flavour is sweet dark fruit with some roasty bitterness. A little too sweet perhaps, but very flavourful and a really nice malty English ale.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
341ml bottle. Pours a dark brown with a ruby hue and a medium to large, creamy, long lasting, tan head that laces. Sweet aroma of roasted malt, dark chocolate, caramel and dried fruit. Sweet flavour of roasted malt, dark chocolate, coffee, dried fruit and light spices with a mildly bitter, warming alcohol finish. Medium body with a smooth, oily texture and soft carbonation. Quite porter like. Pretty good.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at the Explorer hotel in Yellowknife. Has a nice soft malt aroma. Appearance is small head with dark velvet-brown body. Flavour is nice heavy barley-coffee with a hint of syrupy sweetness. Has a nice oily mouthfeel which makes it quite heavy on the palette. It’s a pretty good darker ale and paired well with the elk steak I had that evening.

Nice one from Yukon! Not normally a fan of Porters but this one was different enough to be enjoyable. Had a nice roasted malt flavour with a smooth drinkability.

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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
