Hearty northern people love a hearty stout beer. Weíve teamed up wtih Yukonís 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, weíve 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? Youíll love it so much, youíll want to share it with a friend, or not!

sudomorph (966) - Barrie, Ontario, - 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 wouldnít 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.

Bottle. Dark, nearly black pour with a tan head. Aroma is milk chocolate and roasty coffee, like a creamy mocha. Flavour is pretty roasty, plenty of chocolate with a nice bitter coffee. One of the better coffee stouts I've tried, especially for the ABV. Nice surprise!

Cunningham (6060) - Halden, NORWAY - SEP 20, 2015
Black stuff with a beige head that soon ends up in a thin layer. Rich cold coffee ale. Espresso and grassy. Medium + body and a pleasant carbonation. Tad sweet and an ok bitterness. Oily texture. Ok tasty stout. Maybe a bit to one dimensional.

Deep brown and clear. Aroma is coffee and roast malt. Caramel and bitter coffee, not really a dark espresso but a decent flavour. Iím sure Iíve had this but I donít remember.

yngwie (15764) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 16, 2015
Bottle. A dark brown beer with a small, dense, dark beige head. Mostly clear. The aroma has a lovely mocha scent at first, but after a while Iím not really sure how nice it is. Thereís some vegetal hints in the back, thereís roasted malts and dark chocolate, but itís mocha that dominates. Itís a bit thin on the palate, itís soft and smooth and semi-dry. Mocha, dark chocolate and a little roasted kind of bitterness in the flavor, all lasting for a good while. Overall, a fine brew, but itís a bit ordinary and it lacks body. Drinks easy though. 150613
