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.
