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!

Deep brown ale with reddish hues, little head. Roasted strong coffee aroma, vanilla and a bit of ashtray. Sweet malts chocolate with a touch of licorice, and rapidly dissipating hops in mouth. Some honey notes. Rich and onctuous body, complex. Fall 2004. Thanks to Presario.

Black coloured body with a brown head. Aroma of coffee, chiles, roasted malt and a bit of sweetness. Medium-bodied; Sweet flavour with nice bitter coffee flavours. Overall, a great treak from the Yukon! Thanks very much to Jesse for bringing this one to the party! I sampled this 1 litre bottle on 15-May-2004 at the May RB Party in Toronto, Onatrio.

Well this one is unabashadly true to its name - coffee lovers will line up for this sweet stout. Black with a nice tan head like any good stout. Roasty aromas too - but a little thin and a lot more coffee than balance. Having said that there was some chocolate in there to and despite not being a coffee drinker I do like a good coffee beer....thanks to mr_kimchee for this solid offering.

Deep black, with good head. Roasted malt, coffee and notes of dark chocolate in the great aroma. The carbonation is a little too sharp, but otherwise a very nice stout.

UPDATED: JAN 9, 2006 Dry, roasted coffee beans juggle with ashes and fruity hops…Thin, fizzy carbonation lessens what could have been a near-decadent stout and offers but feeble, sometimes vegetal, coffee malt backbone…A good stout, but it needs a lot more work to reach excellence…

Deep black color with a thin than head. Great aroma of expresso and roasted malt. Amazing flavor of expresso and roasted malt, nice balance between those two. Bitter finish but not harsh. Light to medium body, good carbonation. Wow, what a great beer, assertive but well balanced, very enjoyable.

Dark beer with a big foamy brown head when poured out of the big flip top bottle. Huge espresso bean nose. This is a very nice coffee beer. Lots of sweetened coffee flavors with hints of chocolate and some green hops. The finish is long and is like eating roasted coffee beans. Very smooth beer and a relatively light body. I really liked this beer. Thanks to Presario for the chance to try this.

JCW (1274) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 2, 2004
Dark brown to black in color. Overwelming amount of coffee in the aroma and some chocolate. Flavor is a bit acidic. Medium bodied. Finish was acidic mostly with a touch of sweetness. I had good company while drinking it. Thanks MartinT, tiggmtl and Rastacouere.

Black. Thin off-white head swiftly becomes a ring. Coffeeish aroma is obvious, espresso reminiscent, chocolatey, roasty. Pretty appealing, but not too complex. Slight tart touch. Dry palate with loads of coffee and chocolate, but quite uni-dimensional. Light bitter finish. Lively carbonation, thin-medium body.

Burnt wood, coffee and roasted malt in the nose. Opaque black with thin tan head that recedes to lightly cover. Fairly acidic and extremely roasty, this beer is perhaps overly bitter, yet still very enjoyable. Lasting impression of sweetness. Dry and a bit thin but pleasant in the mouth. Bottle. Enjoyed with hopsrus, MartinT and Rastacouere. Thanks Presario.
