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!

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.

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.

Bitter coffee aroma, with cherry, vanilla. Flavor is slightly sweet, with a bit of coffee, with a moderately bitter finish.

blankboy (7058) - 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 (6372) - 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????

DuffMan (8822) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 4, 2006
UPDATED: MAY 16, 2012 Original rating from 2006 below. This now fairly widely available in six packs. Complexity and richness seem to have waned a bit, but still a solid beer. Massive 1L bottle. This beer is black, with a suggestion of being brown at the edges. No real head. BIG coffee aroma, but vegemite and toast as well. Interesting palate dominated by coffee, but also with some peppery (capsicum) vegetable notes, chocolate, and molasses. Creamy mouthfeel, low carbonation, bitter finish. Big, bold, and fantastic-- luxurious even!

hobgoblin (163) - St-Épiphane, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 11, 2006
Bottle. Deep blac color with tan head. Coffee, coffee, coffee and malt aroma. Taste is mostly coffee and malt but like Siroy said, after one liter it comes alittle boring but i drank it all myself and it was pleasant. Bière de couleur noire opaque avec un collet beige. Odeur de café torréfié et de malt. Au goût, c’est le café et le malt (principalement, c’est cela) et comme fait remarquer Siroy, après un litre, ca devient un peu monotone (a cause du manque de diversité dans le goût) mais j’ai bu toute la bouteille et j’ai quand même apprécié, au moin elle ne tombe pas sur le coeur, à esayé si vous aimer le genre.

Bottle sampled at Seattle gathering courtesy of Pitonka? Deep brown colored with a nice tan head. Good lacing. Rich mocha aroma. Medium bodied and smooth. Flavors run the same as aroma. Nicely done.

From 1 liter bottle at the Montreal YeHa! 2005. Black with little head, deep and opaque....burnt coffee grounds in the assertive nose, sharp bitter and dry, this a sweet stout?....but in the body, the burnt characteristics are lovingly balance by sweet molasses and maple, and the coffee is smooth and enervating rather than harsh...gorgeous and delectable.
