Inspired by local artist & roaster Michael Allen’s eccentricly-named blend of coffee beans, Midnight Sun’s brewers designed a beer recipe and flavor infusion process that perfectly captures the alluring aroma, satisfying flavor and curious legend of Allen’s Arctic Rhino Coffee Blend.

Arctic Rhino Coffee Porter combines two quintessential Pacific Northwest favorites: coffee and ale. The result is wonderfully romantic and robust--a duel-fueled porter that melds charismatic dark malt with freshly roasted coffee beans.

The (un)rest is up to you.

RRistow12 (411) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - AUG 4, 2014
Tasted from draft. Pours a very dark brown almost black with beige head. Good lacing. Strong coffee aroma. Taste is also big time coffee flavor much more than most porters, more stout like. Some mild dark chocolate flavors and a hint of dark fruits. Moderately bitter. Finishes with a very dry mouthfeel. Overall a great porter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

JorisPPattyn (8387) - Ursel, BELGIUM - JUL 13, 2014
Thick dark brown head; black beer, shards of lace. Roasted, coffee, USA hops, rosewater, dates. Coffee flavour - and precious little else. Some chocolate in the finish if I search well. Well-carbonated, quite slick, maybe medium bodied. Not very heartlfting, really. Halfway decent porter.

65 cl. bottle sampled @ "Er Klopt Iemand Op De Deur" Samson & Gert Bierproeving I. Thanks to tderoeck! Spare creamy mocha bubbles on the size, oil black. Very bitter roasted coffee, chocolate, molasses, leather, harsh roast, cocoa, vanilla, charcoal, very harsh coffee roast, brutal, too much for me. Surprisingly thick & syrupy for ABV, seems almost double of what it is. Too brutal roast for my liking but not a bad beer.
