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!

Bottle from kbudd19- thanks again, Kevin! Pours a deep, pretty much opaque midnight color with a small beige head that quickly settles into a lasting ring. Aroma of espresso, of course, with roasted malts, gritty earth, bark, and chalky chocolate. The flavor starts and finishes with espresso, with earth, roast, wet leaves- disappoints, but the finish is nice. Light-bodied, with no carbonation and a flat, thin, watered-down mouthfeel accented by roastiness. Maybe not a great bottle or maybe past its prime, because it seems like there’s something in there with potential. I guess I’ll just have to drive up to Whitehorse and try it fresh on tap.

Huge coffee aroma, and a nice bitterness with some sweetness. Not overly sweet, also not very smooth, missing the creamy aspect of it. For the rest, maybe a bit too much coffee...

Poured from bottle. Great aroma of coffee and chocolate. Pours black with minimal tan head. Medium bitter taste. Full bodied, creamy texture, with soft carbonation. Overall an excellent stout that does is just bitter enough, well balanced.

Homer321 (1809) - Rock Ridge, Florida, USA - JUN 23, 2014
Sampled along the RBSG 2014 bus tour, as in, on the actual bus. Some coffee in the aroma. Pitch black pour. Taste is slightly tart with an off-putting green coffee, almost vegetal thing going on.

Frank (2783) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 22, 2014
This is brown with a fiant brown, fine-bubbled head. It has a sort of vinous cardboard thing going on. It is slightly tart but still kind of flabby and wattery. There’s some decent malt character and coffee but this is just not really good at all.
