3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
~Rich malty aroma of chocolate bread, caramel, toffee, pecan pie.
~Pours a dark brown with reddish tent, small lasting creamy light tan head.
~Roast in flavor with, bread and caramel, light cocoa, earthy, woody hop character.
~Medium full bodied, medium low CO2, slight astringency, lingering roast bitter finish.
~The aroma is great! Some of the great of aroma is lost in the flavor though. The woody flavor lasts too long and kind of ruins some of the malty nuances that I like. Probably go great with food. Smoked ribs, pulled pork.

on tap @ Humpy’s / Anchorage AK --- Clear dark amber color, beige head cover, solid curtain of lace. Taste is full-bodied semi-sweet malt that moves through the swallow, gathering fizz and light hops along the way to a smooth lingering finish. Not at all overpowering, but still recommended.

A decent, if unexceptional, brown ale. Smooth with caramel and nutty flavors. Hint of raisin. A little sweet for my taste, though true to style with assertive flavors. Not the best from Midnight Sun, but not bad.
