COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
With three feet of powder closing the roads, a brewery is not a bad place to get snowed in. Given the unanticipated hall pass of a snow day, our brewers decided to experiment. Hmm…what about this dark caramel roasted Midnight Wheat braced with a serious load of Styrian Goldings, Centennial and Cascade hops? Shovel it in. What a deliciously unexpected way to spend a SNOW DAY!

Bottle. Found this lost in the backlog; enjoyed 2/16/13. Dark brown pour with a modest beige head. Roasty nose, cocoa, and piney. The citrus and floral hops come through as dominant in the flavor, but still a fair amount of roast/toasted malt. Light cocoa. Good stuff.

Found this in the cellar today - best by date was 12 Apr 2012! Poured from bottle to glass - thick 4 finger head that was light tan in color setting on top of a dark, with hints of red, liquid. Hops are apparent, especially the Goldings, and an undertone of wheat/bread. Tastes like a mix between a pale ale and a porter, but with hints of wheat underneath. Still very pleasant to drink, even though well past it’s best by date!

Best by: 23FEB12 A: black with a finger off toasted cream head which falls quickly to a sheet of the same. sheet lace. S: Spicy hops and toasted malts. Smells like an ABA. Some hints of burnt raisins. Me like. T: Sharply bitter with a spicy tone over a nice toasted, dark malt profile. Good stuff. M: medium bodied with slightly hi carb and a little to wet for my preference in this one. O: This is the first beer in quite some time I’ve purchased and consumed over and over. I like it. Serving type: bottle 11-16-2011

It’s like a brown ipa. Dark brown color with hints of red. Tall tan head that lingers and sticks to the glass. Aroma is sweet,cocoa and hops. A great mix of hops and malts that will not let you down.

UPDATED: NOV 11, 2013 Bottle: looks completely black upon pouring, but holding to the light reveals some deep ruby highlights. Beige-ish head with great retention, leaving a huge web of lacing all around. Aroma includes heavy cocoa & chocolate, a bit of roasted malt, & a wet, dripping dank note from the hops. Kind of herbal & maybe slightly citric, too. Taste starts off with some stale cocoa malt & a touch of ashiness with a floral, slightly dank & oily hop presence over top. Slight green, earthy, & onion-y notes hidden. Mildly bitter finish with a faint staleness about it. Citric bit grows with warmth but is still balanced by roasted, chocolate malts.

December 2011. From bottle. Pours dark brown with a tan head. Aromas of dark roasted malt, citrus, caramel. Good balance. Bitter hops on the finish. Not bad at all.

I'm not a fan of black ipa's but this is. Very drinkable beer. Pours a dark brown. Citrus on the nose. Good beer.

Taste is sort of earthy with caramel and a nice moderate amount of hop kick to it. Well rounded.
