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!

Black pour with a nice tan head. Aroma of coffee and roasted malts. Sweet caramel and milk chocolate. Subtle spiciness, too. The flavor is really heavy on the coffee. Caramel, milk chocolate, and roasted malt. Light earth and spice notes. Quite nice.

Lenusik (119) - Illinois, USA - JUN 24, 2013
This is a typical stout. It pours a dark brown, almost black with almost no head. The aroma is definitely coffee with some roasted malt backing it up. The flavour was very strong, again a coffee flavour up front with some licorice tones on the end

Albatross (13) - Saint-Jean-Chrysostome, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 15, 2013
A beautiful opaque black beer that pours a beige head of minuscule bubbles. The aroma of coffee creates a marvelous anticipation for the round, creamy body. The bitterness is very close to that of an espresso of medium intensity. Overall an glorious combination of my two favorite drinks, beer and coffee.

vadie (624) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 8, 2013
UPDATED: APR 16, 2013 Noir foncé avec une petite mousse marron. L’arôme de espresso, chocolat, et malt rôti. Peu de carbonation avec une palate cremeux. Le goût est d’abord du chocolat, ensuite un goût fort du café, et en fin une finale d’houblon légèrement amertume.

turboespresso (256) - Port Moody, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 10, 2013
Bottle. Darkest brown with just a ring of bubbles. You can sure taste the espresso in this one. In fact, it is the one remarkable quality of this brew. Without the espresso, this is a fairly straightforward and kind of flat stout.

9/II/13 - 12Fl. Oz. bottle @ home - BB: n/a (2013-151) Thanks to Alisa for the bottle(s)!

Clear dark brown beer, creamy to aery beige brown head, unstable, adhesive, leaving a nice lacing in the glass. Aroma: lots of coffee, some caramel, sour berries, cocoa powder, but mainly lots and lots of coffee. MF: soft carbon, medium to full body, creamy texture. Taste: cold coffee, cocoa powder, bit sour, bitter touch. Aftertaste: lots of dark chocolate, coffee, roasted flavours, pretty bitter. Too much coffee for my taste, but I guess most coffee stout lovers will go crazy for this one.

andrewturba (944) - Alberta, CANADA - FEB 12, 2013
Pours an opaque black colour with light brown head that fades to spots but laces the glass quite well. Aroma is espresso, dark chocolate, and roasted malt. Flavour is espresso upfront, dry throughout, roasted malt, dark chocolate, mildly bitter throughout from the dark malts and espresso then a bit more bitterness on the finish.

Bretteux (173) - Ste-Julie, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 10, 2013
Au nez des notes cerises noires, chocolat noir sur une fin café allongé.La bière est assez liquide pas trop dense.Sa mousse est légère et disparaît vite.Son effervescence est minime avec de fines bulles.Au gout, lalcool est bien camouflé par les grains de café torréfiés.Pour conclure, une bière facile a boire qui se prends bien.

Nearly black pour with tan head. Prevalent espresso aroma. Full body with lingering bitter finish. Black coffee and nice bitterness from the malt.

lesifflebiere (1188) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 23, 2013
Un onctueux stout au goût de café très puissant (bien entendu), mais aussi de chocolat noir et de vanille en fin de bouche. Plutôt épaisse et totalement opaque, elle possède un nez très sucré où se mèlent des effluves caféinées et boisées. Bien balancée, ce qui était son principal défi à relever. Très agréable.
