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.

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

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.

Lenusik (119) - Illinois, USA - JUN 24, 2013
Ive tried this as both Yukon Lead Dog Ale and Chilkoot Lead Dog Ale. Either way its not the worlds greatest ale. The beer appears to be brownish red, with a thin creamy head. The flavour is very disappointing. A weak watery flavour, with some sweet fruity tones.

BeerandBlues2 (12619) - Escondido, 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.

Pours a dark brown with white head. Nice dark fruit aromas. I get some spice notes too. Flavours of bubble gum, coffee, chocolate, dark fruit. Excellent.

Reimer96 (1743) - Alberta, CANADA - MAR 9, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 15, 2014 Pours a clear ruby brown color with a creamy brown head that dissipates quickly. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malts, nuts, slight caramel and some sweet dried fruits. Taste is roasted malts, chocolate, nuts and finishes off with a light bitterness. Excellent english Olde.
