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!

sunevdj (3949) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - JUN 4, 2006
UPDATED: JUN 6, 2006 (Blind rating at sk8viking’s.) Pours black with an off-white foamy head. Smells of ash. Slightly sou with aromas of burnt malts, coffee and ash, again. Light bodied. Sour ash-like finish. I think I accidentally glued the label from this bottle on to Rene’s table. I hope he gets it off... sorry.

Ungstrup (34362) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 4, 2006
A black beer with a brown shine when held against a light soiurce, underneath a nice brown head. The aroma is strong with notes of cappuchino, but notes of black coffee and vanilla mixes in. The flavor is primarily of black coffee and cappuchino, with a light roasted note, over a thin body. Somewhat boring - had expected more.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 3, 2006
(Bottle 100 cl) Completely black and opaque with a creamy, beige head leaving some laces. The aroma is of pure ash. Rather soft mouthfeel. Medium body with lightly sweet malt and very burned notes - this is very ashy, a feature I don’t really appreciate in my beer. Discreet, bitter finish. Thanks to presario for this. 020606

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 5, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 5, 2008 Typical stout black body but with a disappointingly small off-white head. As expected with “expresso” in the name the focus is on the roasted coffee beans & roasted malt flavours. Not a whole lot of chocolate in there. Although officially a Sweet Stout the beer didn’t feel very sweet. If anything I’d even say it was below-average sweet for a stout. Medium body with dominant roasted coffee beans flavours. Simple but very effective and I loved the big flip-top 1L bottle. Only in Yukon can a beer be named Midnight Sun without it being an oxymoron.

Quevillon (2897) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 23, 2006
But au salon du vin de Montréal 06. Noir comme minuit! Arome de café non moulût. J’imagine c’est comme boire une café froid sans sucré et sans crème.

JasonG (776) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - MAR 12, 2006
Bitter coffee aroma, with cherry, vanilla. Flavor is slightly sweet, with a bit of coffee, with a moderately bitter finish.

blankboy (7227) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 10, 2006
Bottle shared with HogTownHarry & Dave B. -- courtesy of Presario. Pours a murky dark brown, almost black, with a large lasting creamy tan head. Big earthy aroma of espresso and roasted malt -- very nice. Somewhat sweet flavour, predominently of espresso along with caramel malt, chocolate and a light hoppy finish -- perhaps a little watery. Thin to medium bodied with a creamy mouthfeel. A pretty good Stout in a cool bottle.

HogTownHarry (6375) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - MAR 7, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 11, 2006 Bottle (1000 ml). Shared with blankboy and Dave B, blankboy’s bottle via Presario. Poured deep opaque black, huge lasting foamy-creamy tan head. Hind-brain appealing aroma of deeply bitter espresso grounds, peat, dirt, mould, dry leafy hops, some pungent, acidic, with an almost sulfury cabbage-smell; hella-roasted! Flavour is almost disappointing - weak, watery roast coffee, chocolate, a bit of cream, bitter celery - nice, but needs more oomph. Mouthfeel is creamy, light bodied, acidic - okay; has a medium-long earthy, bitter finish: celery? beetroot? Dave said parsnips????
