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. jercraigs (10374) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 6, 2004
Dark brown witha moderate tan head. Aroma is dark roasty malt, and the flavour has delicious chocolatey notes and sweet malt. Slightly roasty bitterness in the finish. A very pleasant way to start things off. Mondiale 3T (Me). MartinT (9880) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 21, 2002
This one is indeed their lead dog…Good dark chocolate bitterness from the malt and creamy body…Not an achievement, but a nice drink… JoeMcPhee (9426) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 25, 2004
Dark brown beer with a slightly ruby tint. Thick rocky dark tan coloured head. The head fades back leaving a thick lacing around the glass. Vanilla and chocolate aromas leap out of the glass along with some fruity esters that seem to be present in all of this brewery’s beers. Flavour features bitter chocolate, vanilla, some coffee and is followed by a hint of astringency and bitterness before you get hit by a warming alcoholic finish. Truly premium stuff. solidfunk (8949) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - DEC 23, 2016
Some roast and a lot of caramel like Snickers. Pours dark brown with decent head and lacing. Tangy finish. Bottle taste at Little Guys.

<i>Bottle (341ml) shared with GregClow, HogTownHarry & garthicus -- courtesy of GregClow.</i> Pours a very deep ruby-orange with a spare diminishing off-white head. Aroma of caramel malt, dark fruit, alcohol and maybe a hint of chocolate. Flavour follows the aroma but is slightly milder and more subtle. Average bodied. A good, enjoyable Ale.

Creamy head, thick. Dark brown chocolate malt is dominant, woody feel. This ale was full bodied, clean with nice good depth. Alcohol was well blended, supported well coffee like finish. Very pleasant dark ale. BlackHaddock (7329) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2016
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. CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUN 15, 2004
In bottle at the Mondial de la Bière 2004: Dark copper brown color with a dense light tan head. Sweet bready caramel aroma has a touch of hoppy bitterness. Full, thick malty body has a nice hopped balance, sweet toffee and lightly roasted malt flavor, and a smooth finish. A very nice beer and from the Yukon of all places!

From a 12 oz bottle purchased at the brewery. Pours a clear cola brown with an ecru head. Aroma of dusty leather. Flavors of raisins. Boozy finish.
