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.

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.

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.

Hazelnut brown colour. Nutty, chocolatey aroma. The flavour is moderate for a strong ale, and certainly I’d hope for bigger if I wanted to survive a Yukon winter. It’s a little chocolatey, with hints of nuts and light coffee notes.

Malty aroma. Strong caramel malt flavour. Heavy palate. Mild sweetness. Pours a very nice copper brown.

Bottle. Translucent cola colored ale with minimal ring around glass. Fruity (raisin, plum) aroma. Medium body. Taste is slightly fruity, with trace of roast malt. Carbonation is mellow but persistent. Alcohol taste is well masked.

RichardGretton (4770) - 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

Chocolate malt with lots of coffee well balanced by hops. The english would be proud!

Bottle from Darby’s Liquor Store
Brown color with medium sized head. Immediate aroma of caramel, dark bread, some spices, dust. Good body strength; the mouthfeel is rather dry; the flavor focuses on the dark caramel, followed by a light spicy touch, rye bread, dust; ending with moderate to strong bitterness and light astringency.
Nothing special, but could be ok with food.

Another nice offering from these guys. Nose is too dominated by grain, makes it kind of hard to pick out other aromas (faint caramel and spice, a bit of toasted bread) Taste is really nice though. Caramel, toasted grain, hazelnuts, a bit of chocolate and treacle. Sweet overall, with a bit of alcohol warmth, but there’s a subtle lingering dryness on the finish too. Wish these guys were bigger hop fans but their malt profiles are solid.

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.
