3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
22oz bottle -
Aroma - dark fruit, rummy raisins, spices, brown sugar and nougat.
Appearance - dark brown/cherry wood like body with a huge 2" creamy head, nice retention.
Taste - lots of dark fruit/raisins in the flavor, brown sugar, a bit of woody bitterness, vanilla, toffee...nice.
Palate - medium/full bodied, slightly sticky, sweet finish with a bit of a zing from the alcohol
Overall - glad to see the Bay Area now stocking Midnight Sun products. Most of their line-up is solid, and this provides another beer to back up that claim. Very solid and quite enjoyable.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle shared by Kan! Poured a near clear brown with a yellow brown head that dissipated to the edge. Aroma was full of sweet grains with some dark fruits and a bit of oak. Flavor had more dark fruit with caramel and sweet dark grains coming on towards the finish with a hint of oak. A bit off from me.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
22oz bottle from... Pours a dark caramel cola brown with lighter reddish brown edges and a thin white to off-white head... Aroma of dark fruit raisins and plums with very minimal oak ... Flavors are very much centralized on dark fruits and caramel malt with a mild
degree of oak which adds a tangy semi-tart finish. Doesn’t do too much for
