This ’dark pale ale’ is brewed with Midnight Wheat, a dark kilned wheat malt that gives the brew a lot of color and distinct maltiness without the burnt-roasty notes found in many stouts and porters. Hopped and dry hopped with 55 pounds of Centennial and Cascade in 12 barrels of beer, this brew has amazing aromas and complexity to help get you through the first chilly days of Winter.

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Tap at Haymarket in Chicago. Dark pour with reddish highlights. Off white frothy head. Musky earthy aroma and taste going on here. Just okay for me.

Draft at Haymarket. Pours a deep, dark brown, near black, with a tan head. Nose is somewhat generic. Faint caramel and toast behind a generic hop aromatic. Some citrus, some resin. Bland overall, though fresh. On tasting, moderate bitterness and drying finish. Faint caramel notes come through. Reasonably balanced and well made but the hops lack character and soul. Generic citrus notes.

On cask at Jerry’s. Delicate, lightly sour, nose of cut pine, citrus, and chocolate / Cask soft, medium body, dry with some astringency, good malt balance and bitter finish / Earthy flavors of burnt coffee, bittersweet chocolate and dry pine, with lemon, grapefruit, and caramel notes / Very nice in a light, dry, not-very-fruity style.

Draft pour on tap at the ICBG FoBAB 2012 Brewers/Sponsors Dinner (Chicago, IL). Pours a roasty black hue, body is darker with a glowing brownish copper bottom and edges, richer with cakey light brown head atop. Stays as a mellow layer, laces well. Aromas are richer citrusy grapefruit hops, gentle tropical fruit, richer florals with a touch of roasty toast. Gentle bready and biscuity malts are overrun by resiny and citrusy hops. Initial is lighter end of the fold preaching bigger bitterness up front, big florals and grapefruit, dense citrus, dryness. Touches of toast, mellow bready malts and wheat. Kiss of toastiness, the middle shows more hops, dry and resinous, gentle darker malts are overrun. Rich dry hop flavors as the backend gets a touch toasty, bigger fruit and citrus, florals, grass, and pine. A one trick pony but right up my alley, allaying dark malt and roast, with big hops instead. Good flavors, rich grapefruit juice and rind. Finish is dry, a gentle darker carmelized malt bent, with big lingering dry hops. Nice beer, staying away from body and roast, and getting to the issue of hops and exactly what I want. Tasty.
