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!

Bottle shared by Skyview - thanks!! Dark brown pour with a light tan head. Really nice coffee and malty nose. A little thin in the taste, slightly sweet and nice coffee bitterness in the finish.

Bière d’un noir profond, exhaussé d’une mousse beige correcte, peut-être un peu timide. Nez puissant de chocolat noir et de vanille, le tout mélangé aux grains de café. En bouche, c’est puissant, enrobant. Après une gorgée, on a littéralement l’impression d’avoir laissé fondre un carré de chocolat noir 72 % sur notre langue. Belle amertume de café torréfié. Je ne suis pas amateur de noires, mais je dois dire qu’à mon sens, celle-ci me semble parfaite. Cheers!

Bottle @ Exira Beer Summit IV, Day 2. Pours a brown appearance with a foamy brown head. Roasty coffee, rich dark milk chocolate, vanilla bean, a bit herbal aroma. Quite nice creamy dessert flavor with plenty of dark chocolate and coffee along with a bit of nuts and vanilla. Çhïłł beer and even more çhïłł Yukon Territory rake.

sudomorph (609) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 3, 2013
341ml bottle. Pours black with a 1/4 finger mocha head that thins out to a film quickly. Aroma has large notes of coffee, bitter chocolate, and hints of molasses, vanilla, bread, and caramel. Taste is bitter with a much the same notes as the aroma. Coffee, bitter chocolate, roasted malts. Medium body with a low-medium carbonation. A bit of a thin texture in the mouth but with a slight creamyness. Easily drinkable. Overall pretty good. It is just what you would expect from an espresso stout but I wouldn’t call it a Sweet Stout. Big coffee flavours that is very drinkable, Mind you this bottle was a touch past its date it was still very good. I would buy again.

bouteille de 341ml de noire. arome peu puissante de café avec notes d’anis et de cassonade. en bouche le café ressort avec son amertume mais c’est tres agréable avec des notes sucré qui équilibrent bien le tout

341ml bottle into a shaker. Pours jet black with a sparse head and light lacing. Big nose of espresso and malt. Less coffee flavour than expected on the nose, but some dark chocolate and maybe some currant? Smooth, rich, smoky, and mighty tasty.

Pour out of 12 oz bottle, thanks Aaron! Dark black pour with thin tan head, dissipates quickly. Aroma brings nice espresso, coffee, roast, nie green bean, slight chocolate, caramel, toffee, pretty nice. Taste is a nice mix of dark chocolate, roast going into big espresso, coffee bean, nice and not over roasted with good coffee, not folgers grounds. Nice earth, spice, hints of caramel, finishing roasted, slightly dry. Nice.
