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!

34cl Bottle, tfs JulienHuxley! Dark brown to black colour, beige head. Aroma of espresso, coffee, some chocolate brownie. Flavour is less coffee then expected, chocolate, malts, roast, some espresso, bitter finish. Light-bodied. Smooth and easy.

Bottle from kbudd19- thanks again, Kevin! Pours a deep, pretty much opaque midnight color with a small beige head that quickly settles into a lasting ring. Aroma of espresso, of course, with roasted malts, gritty earth, bark, and chalky chocolate. The flavor starts and finishes with espresso, with earth, roast, wet leaves- disappoints, but the finish is nice. Light-bodied, with no carbonation and a flat, thin, watered-down mouthfeel accented by roastiness. Maybe not a great bottle or maybe past its prime, because it seems like there’s something in there with potential. I guess I’ll just have to drive up to Whitehorse and try it fresh on tap.

Huge coffee aroma, and a nice bitterness with some sweetness. Not overly sweet, also not very smooth, missing the creamy aspect of it. For the rest, maybe a bit too much coffee...

Poured from bottle. Great aroma of coffee and chocolate. Pours black with minimal tan head. Medium bitter taste. Full bodied, creamy texture, with soft carbonation. Overall an excellent stout that does is just bitter enough, well balanced.
