Poured into a Fremont small snifter. Pours a very dark mahogany brown, appearing opaque black in the glass with a thin light brown head that dissipates to patches with light lacing. Aroma of semi-sweet dark toasted malt, chocolate, hints of coffee and vanilla. Flavor follows aroma with dark toasted malt, coffee, dark chocolate and a hint of vanilla. Medium bodied with a nice mouth feel. A quite nicely made coffee stout that is well balanced, almost to the point of making it difficult to isolate the different flavors. The finish reveals a good coffee flavor and light bitterness. Somewhat mellow but well integrated, an enjoyable stout with good light coffee flavor. My second beer from Yukon and another good one.

Free beer from a beer buddy who went to Yukon Brewing company.
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a dark brown close to black color with a thin white to off white foamy head that dissipated and left some light lacing sticking and then sliding down into the beer.
The smell had a huge amount of espresso over some nice cocoa flavors.
The taste was balanced nicely between the espresso and the cocoa, roasty and sweet.
The mouthfeel was slightly sharp but not intruding. There's a nice bittersweet roastiness strolling over my palate.
Overall, wow, this was a really nice espresso stout that I could definitely do again.

Poured from bottle. Great aroma of coffee and chocolate. Pours black with minimal tan head. Medium bitter taste. Full bodied, creamy texture, with soft carbonation. Overall an excellent stout that is just bitter enough, well balanced.

From a bottle, pours a charcoal dark black, looks a little thin and watery. It looks literally like a shot of cold espresso.

Nose is roasty, espresso beans, bitter cocoa. The flavor is how you would expect after the nose. It is dominated by the espresso, bitter coffee, some vanilla, roasted caramel with some bitter hops balancing in. Overall, this is good, I like it, but not a top tier in the style.

I've always been a big fan of Yukon brewing's products, and this one has been sitting in my fridge for a while, so I ought to finally get it over with.

It has that great black colour of any stout, albeit with not much head. Very smooth sipping with extremely mild carbonation, but quite big on aroma. You know that smell when you fill a coffee filter with fresh coffee? That's what this smells like, although obviously a little colder.

The espresso really comes out in the taste along with a sweet malty backing. The body is nice and creamy like most other stouts, but lacking a little something. My favourite stouts have a deeper flavour than what is present here, and have a bit of a heavier body. Nevertheless, this is a good specimen.
