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.

HogTownHarry (6380) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - DEC 1, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 18, 2009 Bottle (341ml). Shared by GregClow with me, blankboy and garthicus. Clear ruby-amber pour with a quick-diminishing frothy off-white head. Aroma or maple syrup and dried out herbal hops. The taste is much more bitter than sweet, dry, almost like fall leaves. Average bodied, slick, weakly syrupy, leaving a burnt aftertaste. Too sweet - weird.

egajdzis (6232) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 26, 2007
Poured a red amber color with a medium sized, light tan head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of oxidation, nuts, molasses, honey, and light smoke. Taste of citrus fruits, DMS, cocoa, light caramel, cardboard, with a bit of toffee in the finish.

Boutip (6087) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 12, 2004
Bottle: Poured a clear dark copper beer with a huge head with good retention. Aroma is quite malty with some noticeable roastiness. Taste is very interesting with some notes of roastiness coming in at first and ending with a balanced bitterness. No too complex beer overall, but a good example of the style.

reebtogi (5940) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 5, 2012
341ml bottle pours dark brown in color with a creamy off-white head that leaves some thin lacing on the glass. Aroma is dominated by roasted malts. Taste is roasted malty bitterness with some malty sweetness as well finishing with a light hoppy bitterness. Medium body and nice carbonation leave a pleasing mouthfeel. This is my favorite from this brewery.

TimE (5373) - Tokyo, JAPAN - AUG 11, 2007
This rich dark brew offers up notes of toffee, dark fruit, dark chocolate and butterscotch. It is perhaps a bit hoppier than what one might expect for the style . For 7% it also drinks bigger with a warming finish. I could see this being an excellent beer for those cold Artic nights.

presario (4903) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 2, 2006
Frothy head on a dark ruby beer. Porter-like malt nose. Complex malt. Stout-like. Swear there is a light cherry taste in the finish. Hints of chocolate. Is this the stout without the Espresso? Toasty and tasty. A nice winter warmer.

minutemat (4790) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2016
341ml bottle, shared with blackhaddock in his man cave. Many thanks to Duffman for this. Pours deep mahogany, tan head. Aroma is caramel malt. Taste is smooth deep caramel flavours, some dark fruit shading, a hint of leather. Lovely warming moreish character.

RichardGretton (4696) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2012
[email protected] River, Jasper, Canada. Reddish brownish black beer with a strong light brown head. The aroma is lightly malty, and the flavour is malty with some molasses and vinous notes. Overall a pretty average ale, but I've had a beer from the Yukon. Well pleased with that. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Thanks to zzbrrt. Pours a lightly hazy ruby amber with a small bubbly off white head. Aroma of sweet malts, iced tea, leathery, caramel, tobacco, nuts and some cardboard. Flavor of tea, tobacco, caramel, nuts, dark fruits, some toffee and toasted malts.

tiggmtl (4544) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 3, 2004
Malty, fruity caramel aroma with notes of chocolate and roasty dark malts. Clear dark amber-brown with decent tan head that recedes to cover. Bittersweet chocolate malt flavours with a decent balancing bitterness. Some alcohol noticeable in the finish. Body perhaps a touch on the thin side for a winter warmer but very enjoyable. Bottle. Thanks, JoeMcPhee.
