COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The last in our 2007 Deadly Sin Beer series evokes deadly desire in men (and, OK, women too) with its dark Belgian character. It was aged for ONE year in bourbon oak barrels and infused with sour cherries & brettanomyces.

Bottle. Colour... dark brown with amber edges and no head. Nose... vanilla, figs and dates. Palate... lightly frothy (surprised that there was any froth as there was no head) but a smidge thin with a surge of pressed dates, dark currants and Brooks prunes followed by Bourbon vanilla, faint wisps of cherry and almost no brett, but a delightfully long sweet finish. Not my fave of the "7 deadly beers" but nice nonetheless.

22oz bottle pours a watery, otherwise opaque black with one ring of white head. Nose is sweet, coffe liqeuer, vanilla beans, light spice, dried fruit. Flavor is sweet but a little artificial, processed chocolate, coffee liqeuer, brown sugar, wet Christmas bread, light spice. Medium bodied, sweet finish.

Thanks CaptainCougar! Garnet brown pour with a small off white head. Bourbon vanilla sweetness, huge cherry and chocolate- raisin lead to a fig filled finish. Thick, rich, and sweet.

Thanks to CaptainCougar!! Dark brown pour. Nose of vanilla wood, light oxidation, cherry and sherry, fig, and raisin. The flavor isn’t necessarily sour from the Brett, but tasty. Lactic, roasty bitterness, and nice dark fruit. Good stuff.

Bottle shared by CaptainCougar. Pours clear dark brown with a small, fizzy off-white head, short retention with light lacing. Aroma is light oxidation, dates, light milk chocolate, light sherry, earthy and faint burnt malt and coffee. Flavor is light roast, chocolate, dates, caramel, light Brettanomyces, dark fruits, light oxidation and a sweet finish. Full body, medium warmth and carbonation.

651mL thanks to CaptainCougar. The pour is near ink with a thick, tan, RIS style head. Dense and mocha frappy. Nose is big roast, heavy dark chocolate, cocoa. Taste is ultra rich dark chocolate. Absolutely zero Brett or cherry character. 100% imperial stout right here. Pretty much the opposite of what I was expected, but it is a style Midnight Sun is famous for and this one lives up to the name. Very dense, powerful roast and chocolate. Awesome body. Great mouthfeel overall and super dense. If you are looking for sour, funk, or wild character...prepare to be disappointed. This is just an easy 4.0 imperial stout from one of the masters.

EricE (1368) - Silver Spring, Maryland, USA - DEC 11, 2011
Hazy dark brown pour thin light tan head. Smells like an imperial stout - lots of chocolate and coffee and bourbon. Moderately sweet flavor. Just a touch of tartness. Flavor has lots of chocolate and cream. Light bourbon. Not bad.

Travlr (9999) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 11, 2011
Bottle courtesy of CaptainCougar, thank you sir! Pours very dark brown, small beige head that settles quickly. Aroma of pumpernickel bread and soda biscuits. Taste is sweet brown sugar, light spice, dark summer fruits. Nice stuff.

TheAlum (5205) - Lisle, Illinois, USA - JAN 11, 2011
Bottle shared at Derek’s Going Away Tasting. Pours a murky brownish dark brown, a moderate tannish head laces ok, dies to an ok film. Aromas are roasty and toasty, toffee and a touch of nuttiness, caramel. Some dry toast, sweeter biscuits. Initial is a bit dry, toasty and sweet, touches of biscuits, toffee, caramel. Some chocolate chip cookies lightly move in, dry with lingering roast and toast, some touches of wet oak and vanilla, lingering toastiness dries the beer out substantially. Some sticky caramel creeps in stronger, touch of brown sugar and light dark fruit, nice, lingering sweetness, dry toast, touches of oxidation. Tasty, I don’t get much in the way of brett.. Hmmm..

Bottle shared by Sean, thanks! Poured a near clear dark brown with a red hue and a brown head that dissipated slowly to the edges. Aroma had a bourbon note with sweet red fruits, dark grains and a good amount of mustiness. Flavor was similar with bourbon, red fruits, dark grains and must. The brett didn’t really come through.
