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!

smells like coffee, taste like chocolate bread--is there such a thing?? A little thin for a stout, but great to share "with a friend"

Taster de 4 onz Festival Bière et Saveurs Chambly 03/09/05. Belle surprise, goût de moka, belle mousse présente, l’alcool bien que présent se cache bien. Plus chocolat-café qu’autre chose une bonne stout pour convertir les buveurs de bière blonde/café au bières noires.

BBB63 (5741) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - SEP 5, 2005
Bottle provided by JSquire at the Labor Day gathering 2005:

Deep brown hue with a small beige head and good lacing. The aroma has notes of espresso, mocha, grassy and citric hops, bready and a bit earthy esters also. The taste is pure milk chocolate at the start but quickly the espresso bitterness finds it’s way to the palate. I also get some light blackberry and currant, spice, and smoke to add complexity to this sweet breakfast stout. Could use some more body (aka oatmeal). A good brew and solid across the board.

There’s something to be said about being in the mood - and I was in the mood for this. Coffee, coffee, coffee, dark chocolate, coffee, a tad more chocolate and some hops at the finish with a hint of sweetness to round it all out. Well melded together to help it veer from the unidimensional. Nice. Thanks to presario

UPDATED: JUL 17, 2005 I don’t normally rate by consensus, but there are four of us sharing this one liter bottle. I think that we all had really high expectations for this, but we were dissapointed. The overwelming taste is coffee. My brother thinks that it tastes like day old gas station coffee. I am willing to give it just the taste of a strong coffee bean; it doesn’t help that we all have super fond memories of the Jasper Brewing Company’s Espresso Stout. In comparision, this beer isn’t nearly as smooth, the flavors are not well balanced, and a rather mediocre malted barley was clearly used. The head had rather large bubbles, rather than a creamy head that the best espresso stouts have. Other tastes are peanuts and honey....why are all the beers from this brewery too sweet?!?!?!?!? "Dry?", you’re kidding, right? Disapointing, but maybe because of all of the previous high ratings.

UPDATED: JUN 12, 2005 2004 bottle at the Mondial, 6/4/05. Like mds said, this wasnt cheap and wasnt particularly worth the $6 CAD for a small sample, IMHO. Opaque brown-ruby color. A tan head is very bubbly and recedes rapidly to nothing, making me wonder how thick this stuff is. There is great lacing on the glass though. Coffee, honey, graham crackers, mocha in the nose, quite complex and inviting, though not particularly overwhelming with strength. Flavor starts out with bitter roast, vanilla, peanuts and dark chocolate. Light barley grains on the texture, a bit like sticky honey as well. Lightens up in body a good deal on the end, though I wouldnt call it watery, exactly. A mocha finish and light oily roast notes linger. Very drinkable for a medium strength coffee stout.

bottle. They’re crazing wanting six dollars for a 4 oz sample at Mondial :(
Pitch black with a rocky mocha head. beautiful roasty nose with huge notes of bittersweet chocolate along with hints of smokiness. sweet start with light smoke notes and heaves of roasted malt, coffee, and chocolate. Sweet throughout and finish is chocolatey. It’s a tasty stout and cool to know that there is something interesting being brewed out in the vast north of Canada but I wonder how much this costs there as $6 for a small sample is pretty steep.

Eructoblaster (2852) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 6, 2005
Opaque black body topped with a lasting light brown frothy head. Nice malty aroma with notes of roasted coffee and dark chocolate. Taste is a bit more robust than the aroma lets us expect. It ends with a long roasty finish. Pretty good stuff.
