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!

As expected, bold coffee aromas dominate this. when drinking it, you get a brilliant mix of roasted malt, caramel and, of course, strong coffee. The finish is disappointing, it left me feeling like I just drank cold coffee. Other than that, there isn’t too much wrong with this. A fine brew from Canada’s north.

Bière noire comme la nuit, aucune lumière ne peut la traverser, parfaite opacité, effervescence difficile à observer mais qui semble bonne, et surmontée d’un col couleur moka, pas tellement large, mais très dense et bien mousseux, persistant, et qui colle sur les parois du verre. Arômes de malt torréfié, beaucoup de chocolat noir avec du café (de l’espresso!), de la fumée, un peu de levure terreuse, et des traces de tourbe et de vanille. Le malt torréfié qui émane de ce breuvage est incroyablement intense et agréable, ça met grandement en appétit. Ce nez manque simplement un peu de complexité. En bouche, pétillement moyen-faible sur la langue, onctuosité intéressante au palais, c’est quelque peu soyeux et velouté, mais ce pourrait être mieux pour une stout. Au goût, malt torréfié, café et chocolat noir, aussi beaucoup de fumée, davantage que normalement pour le style. La finale apporte un houblon citronné qui apporte une légère acidité fort agréable au breuvage. L’amertume quant à elle est minimal voire inexistante. Davantage en arrière-plan, on retrouve la levure terreuse, la tourbe et une pointe de vanille. Très bon goût, mais un peu moins intense en bouche qu’au nez, et complexité plutôt moyenne. Très bonne bière!

Pitch black with a shy tanned head. Strong coffee, black chocolate, smoked nuts, candied dark fruit. Bitter taste with some nice sweetness. Medium body with a thin texture, nice carbonation.

HippyHop (109) - CANADA - AUG 22, 2014
This is a nice way to finish my Yukon Brewery tasting. Pours like coffee with a light tan head. Nose is almost pure coffee, a hint of cocoa and caramel. The bitter coffee really dominates, and it’s got a hint of staleness to it, like coffee grinds instead of coffee, but it’s somehow still pleasant. Taste is bang on though. Rich coffee and chocolate, caramel, treacle, roasted nuts, some spice. A tiny bit dry but it’s more bitter coffee than hops that linger.

bierkoning (10208) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - AUG 22, 2014
Bottle from JulienHuxley, thanks! Almost black, strong chocolate, malt and espresso aroma. Full bodied. Malty sweet flavor with fresh coffee and berries. Very nice beer, could be a bit more refined.

Lukaduke (2185) - Portland, Maine, USA - AUG 22, 2014
Bottle thanks to Nielsen ! Pours a rich burnt umber color with two fingers of khaki gaseous foam. Nose has a nice soft mix of roasted malt, bittersweet chocolate, fresh coffee and a hint of pumpernickel bread. Palate follows with nice layers of flavors but extreme balance/ Smooth creamy mouthfeel with perfect carbonation. Just a pleasurable beer to drink, was just gonna tick it before bed but I finished this with ease !

Good mix of coffee and barley malt, not all one or the other. Cola brown, thin tan head. Coffee and soil flavor. Light body and astringent. Good intensity of flavor and aroma.
