Formerly Black Magic.
Ghost River Midnight Magic (Seasonal) has a pronounced toasted malt flavor that creates a smooth roasted flavor without the bite found in a typical stout or porter. The end result is a dark beer with great flavor and drinkability.

On tap at Mellow Mushroom in Germantown. Pours a dark black with a small creamy head. Aroma of roasted coffee, malts, smoky. Taste follows: roasted malts, not very bitter but somewhat smokey. This is really a good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Had on tap while in memphis. Pours a nice dark brown color with a nice head. Very nice and balanced aromas of roasted malts, coffee beans, and some chocolate. This has a real nice feel, but lacking a little bit of body. Balanced with nice flavors of malts and chocolate. This was a real good beer. One of the better southern brews I had on my trip and very enjoyable.

DuffMan (9541) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 31, 2008
GABF 2008. To be honest, the volunteer pourer wasn’t sure if this was a porter or a stout, and in the end I wonder if it should just be called a brown ale. Dark brown colour, off-white head. Palate is on the thin side, with low roast losing out to caramel malt. Low bitterness. Not terrible, but a little lacking in character.
