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!

The perfect stout. Dark, fine brown head (not too much), nice coffee flavor (not too strong)

Deep black ale with coffee, caramel and molasse aroma. High torrefied taste. A great desert beer.

Pours an opaque black robe topped by a finger or so of moka head. The nose delivers tons of roasted coffee beans and burnt toasts paired with strong dark chocolate, challenging an imperial russian stout. The taste is bold and coarse with strong coffee, bitter dark chocolate and nutty features in the back. This is a hearty stout with the flavour profile of an imperial russian stout. The bitterness is not overwhelming, but be warned it is pretty powerful.

Purchased in the 1 liter bottle with ceramic stopper/wire bail. Poured an impressive deep dark opaque cola color that defies light to pass through the glass. Rich tan cap that lasts. Aromas of sweet malts, cocoa, fresh cappuccino and spices. Starts a bit thin and sweet then builds to an oily mouth feel where the hop bitters and chunky cocoa-coffee tastes overpower the sweet malts. The finish is glorious....dry with lingering coffee/chocolate-dry after taste...then the warming feel of the 6.2%ABV...a wonderful stout...and I like stouts. I want to get this one and keep it cellared for cold winter nights.

I am not a big fan of the style, but have to rate it according to its style and its possibly the best of this style I have had. A good-looking 1 litre stout. Good session ale. Only criticism: not a lot of different tastes and a bit aggressive on carbonation. WOnderful milky capuccino expresso flavour like a top expresso. And nuts! Little beer taste. High caffeine overwhelms the alcohol.
