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!

I am not a big fan of the style, but have to rate it according to its style and its possibly the best of this style I have had. A good-looking 1 litre stout. Good session ale. Only criticism: not a lot of different tastes and a bit aggressive on carbonation. WOnderful milky capuccino expresso flavour like a top expresso. And nuts! Little beer taste. High caffeine overwhelms the alcohol.

Pitch-black with a dark-brown head. Huge espresso aroma, with some molasses and brown sugar obvious as well on top of a faint fruitiness that I canít quite pull out. Very full-bodied and creamy. Coffee and chocolate flavours dominate and itís topped off by a long roasty and bitter finish. I think this is the best that this brewery has to offer. Visiting this brewery was definitely one of the highlights of my trip to the Yukon and if in Whitehorse, people should check it out.

Deep black in colour with a coffee coloured head. Aroma was very roasty with lots of coffee, espresso and dark chocolate. Full out coffee flavour, lots of chocolate, cream and a deep roast. Finishes with a long coffee bitterness. I love coffee beers.

Coffee aroma, deep brown, toffee head. Full coffee flavour. Robust, full bodied and bitter. Well built! My first beer from the Yukon. Cool bottle. Thanks mr_kimchee!

Radek Kliber (6321) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - MAY 21, 2004
Interesting aroma, strong roasted nose with hints of spice. Dark, very dark brew with pleasant creamy head. Decent bitterness, nice mouthfeel, good rounded malt. Well balanced dark roasted stout.

IPFreely (1470) - Sanborn, New York, USA - MAY 19, 2004
Liter swingtop bottle. Very dark, firm tan head. Sweet aroma, also pretty roasty, had some coffee as well. Slightly dry roasted flavor, followed by some sweetness, balanced. Fairly dry mouthfeel, medium to full body. A nice stout.

MrManning (1982) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 17, 2004
Produces a dark black body with a thin caramel coloured head. Aroma is spicy coffee with some roasted malt. Coffee taste is not as strong as other beers of the style, but still apparent. Finish is a bitter and oddly spicy finish. Also a hint of sourness dominates after a few minutes. Iíd like to try it again when not with so many other beers.

GregClow (2812) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 17, 2004
Dark brown colour. Aroma of spiced coffee. Body is a touch thin for the style. Flavour is coffee, coffee and more coffee - plus a bit of chocolate and nuts.

Oakes (11770) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 17, 2004
Very dark brown colour. Quite coffeeish aroma, with slight maltiness. Very coffeeish flavour. Walks the line between balanced and unbalanced, but ultimately retains its civility despite fairly heavy hand on the espresso machine. Despite this, itís still not something Iíd recommend to non-coffee fans.
