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!

Dark brown pour with small beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, espresso, chocolate and faint hops. Taste of roasted malts, faint chocolate, espresso coffee, slight caramel and faint hops. Medium bodied, medium carbonation, perfectly balanced.

Pours black with thin beige head that dissipates quickly. Aroma of slight coffee and dark malts. Strong taste of roasty coffee followed by dark malts. Coffee is slightly over powering and the body is not very thick for a stout but overall a pretty good stout.

The perfect stout. Dark, fine brown head (not too much), nice coffee flavor (not too strong)

Bouteille 1L. Nez de malt rôti, de café noir, léger de chocolat noir et de mélasse et avec des traces de vanille et fruitées (de cerises). Rondeur moyenne en bouche et moyennement pétillante avec une texture assez crémeuse. Léger goût de vanille lors de l’entrée en bouche suivi rapidement d’un goût amer de malt rôti et de café noir amer intense et léger de mélasse puis viennent ensuite un léger goût du chocolat noir. Arrière-goût assez long, moyennement amer de rôti et de café noir avec des traces de chocolat et des petites notes de caramel. [notes 2005]

DeanF (2342) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 26, 2016
Poured cold from the bottle into a tall glass, modest beige head and good black copper body. Really good layered aromas of coffee, chocolate, burnt oak. Okay espresso flavours with roasted barley notes. Not enough oomph on the mouthfeel but just okay. Really good and up there for sure.

When it is good, it is very good. But as I have lived up there where it is brewed, I have found it inconsistantly carbonated, and sometimes lacking the rich Midnight Sun Coffee aroma when it is a really good batch. When it is good, it is amazing, but I cannot depend on it after 5 plus years, so I do not buy it to share with friends. What a shame.

ljthiessen (1079) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - NOV 6, 2015
Bottle. Dark, nearly black pour with a tan head. Aroma is milk chocolate and roasty coffee, like a creamy mocha. Flavour is pretty roasty, plenty of chocolate with a nice bitter coffee. One of the better coffee stouts I've tried, especially for the ABV. Nice surprise!

Bottle from brewery. Aroma of coffee and malt is mild but the flavour is more pronounced when drinking.
