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!

Ungstrup (29207) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 4, 2006
A black beer with a brown shine when held against a light soiurce, underneath a nice brown head. The aroma is strong with notes of cappuchino, but notes of black coffee and vanilla mixes in. The flavor is primarily of black coffee and cappuchino, with a light roasted note, over a thin body. Somewhat boring - had expected more.

Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 3, 2006
(Bottle 100 cl) Completely black and opaque with a creamy, beige head leaving some laces. The aroma is of pure ash. Rather soft mouthfeel. Medium body with lightly sweet malt and very burned notes - this is very ashy, a feature I don’t really appreciate in my beer. Discreet, bitter finish. Thanks to presario for this. 020606

Very dark brown beer. Mild malt and mild coffee on the nose. Light palate, fairly dry. Dark malt but very mild, almost apologetic. Very light coffee, barely there. Mild minerals. Wishy washy stout.

Oakes (12352) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 17, 2004
Very dark brown colour. Quite coffeeish aroma, with slight maltiness. Very coffeeish flavour. Walks the line between balanced and unbalanced, but ultimately retains its civility despite fairly heavy hand on the espresso machine. Despite this, it’s still not something I’d recommend to non-coffee fans.

thewolf (11149) - Kolding, DENMARK - AUG 2, 2010
Bottle.[thanks, cfrancis]
All black with a big, staying, creamy, cappucino head. Aroma has lots of cold coffee, cocoa powder, dark chocolate, fairly grainy with some sweetness at the back. Medium, rather prickly carbonation, fine, elegant and fairly dry mouthfeel. Flavour is relatively sweet, lots of dry, bitter coffee, quite roasted. Dark chocolate and cocoa powder as well. The coffee almost seems grainy in the finish. Lovely coffee stout.
