COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hearty northern people love a hearty stout beer. We’ve teamed up wtih Yukon’s famous Midnight Sun Coffee Roaster to create this special blend. Originally developed for "Bean Queen" Zola Dore in a small batch kettle system by Yukoner Mitt Stehelin, we’ve retained the artisan qualities of this unique, unfiltered brew. The robust taste of this hearty stout starts with the smooth glide of real espresso and finishes with a dry chocolatey malt flavour. Why the big bottle? You’ll love it so much, you’ll want to share it with a friend, or not!

Aroma is roasty malts, caramel, vanilla and some espresso. Taste is similar to aroma but it finishes somewhat flat and very light on mouthfeel . Appearance is black with a thin pearl head that retains fairly poorly.

Hammy78 (841) - Dundas, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 24, 2015
Bottle shared with my brother in-law. Pours an opaque colour, light tan head that dies to a ring, some minor flecks of lace. Nose is strong coffee flavour, a little sweet malt, coffee is really dominant. Tastes sweet, coffee bitter, quite rich coffee flavour.

Beardbeerman (237) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 4, 2015
Pours an opaque black robe topped by a finger or so of moka head. The nose delivers tons of roasted coffee beans and burnt toasts paired with strong dark chocolate, challenging an imperial russian stout. The taste is bold and coarse with strong coffee, bitter dark chocolate and nutty features in the back. This is a hearty stout with the flavour profile of an imperial russian stout. The bitterness is not overwhelming, but be warned it is pretty powerful.

Keir (180) - Saint Louis, Missouri, USA - DEC 22, 2014
Bottle from kbudd. Thanks Kevin. Black with no head. Heavy coffee nose. A bit of chocolate and roasted malt. Tastes of coffee, sweet chocolate, roasted malt, a hint of bitterness on the back end. Oily mouthfeel. This has been in the fridge since RBSG and has held up nicely. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

341 ml bottle. Pours a very dark brown with moderate tan head that dissipates quickly. Aromas of dark chocolate, coconut, and heavily roasted malts. Flavors of watery black coffee, bitter acidic nuts, and roasted barley. A little metallic.
