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!

1 liter flip top bottle acquired in trade with boutip (thanks for this great beer and letting me get another hard to get Canadian Province!). Poured a dark black with brown edges and an averaged sized tan head. Aromas of vanilla, coffee, and roast. Tastes of vanilla, cocoa, coffee, and roast. Reminded me of a cup of coffee with creamer added (both the aromas and tastes). Smooth and creamy body. I enjoyed drinking the whole liter at Christmas dinner!

Ughsmash (7279) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 31, 2006
1L bottle. Poured a clear, very deep brown with a tall, well-retained toffee/beige head and some nice lacing... just beautiful! Nose carried an immense roasted malt character... full of freshly-ground espresso beans and dark chocolate... woodiness and earth round it out. Flavor was of deep and rich roasted espresso and dark chocolate... coffee and earth bitterness rode around the tongue and through the long espresso finish. Full, rich, and roasty on the palate with well-placed bitterness. Excellent brew!

Aubrey (3482) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - AUG 22, 2006
Deep and dark with a nice and frothy, tan head. Great mouthfeel; smooth and rich and creamy. Big dark chocolate and coffee, with sprightly nips of molasses. Healthy amount of bitterness balanced things out well. Muscular, yet suave. Good stuff.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - JUL 4, 2006
Poured a very dark brown color with a ruby tint and minimal head. The aroma smelled like spent coffee grains, roasted malt, and a fair amount of ash. The flavor was a little on the small side. Raosty with some tartness.
