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.

bulldogops (2490) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 6, 2010
Bottle from a little liquor store in Lendrum Place (by Sunterra and Jack’s). 7%. Dark brown pour with a minimal tan head that fades quickly to a ring. Aroma is toffee, chocolate, vanilla, hint of coffee. Strong malty notes with a hint of light hoppy bitterness in the finish. 7% abv is well disguised as this feel medium-light bodied. A great brew from Whitehorse.

DeanF (2456) - Alberta, CANADA - AUG 9, 2015
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.

VertBaconStrips (2389) - Blerkablerka, VENEZUELA - JUN 8, 2009
Clear dark brown with a minor red hue, poured a nice tan head that, after sitting for 10 minutes, had left a nice hilly and smooth cap that had excellent retention. Constant effervecence. Had a good warm burnt aroma with mild coffee notes, a touch of chocolate and solid hops. Good balance. Good burnt smell! I could taste the alcohol, but this was not a deterrent. I like this! It’s got lots of flavour with burnt coffee and possibly chocolate as well. I drank this at room temperature. Feels thick. Nice solid burnt and bitter aftertaste that remained after every sip. A lot better than I first thought.

Bottle thanks to Joe - Dark pour, nice dark and chocolately. Some grassy grainy and smooth malts, not much bitter. Touch of coffee, bubbly mouthfeel hint of bitterness. Not bad at all.

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.

Savvy1982 (1706) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 23, 2009
Bottle. Pours medium brown with a reddish flash. Thick off-white/pale tan head with spotty/ropey lacing. Nose is fruit, malt, caramel, toffee, cinnamon, ginger. Palate is smooth and soft, nice sweetness. Rich and mildly spicy, plenty of stewed fruit, caramel, and nuts. Very tasty, a surprise from Yukon!

3.2
gramity (1668) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 31, 2011
Poured a very dark brown with a thin tan head. The aroma is very roasty. The flavour is initially roasted malt followed by a nice sweetness and just a hint of bitterness on the finish. Very enjoyable.

3.7
ljthiessen (1348) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - NOV 10, 2015
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.

2.3
WheatKing (1338) - Phnom Penh, CAMBODIA - SEP 8, 2012
Sampled at the GCBF. 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.
