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. HmmÖwhat 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!

UPDATED: NOV 7, 2011 12 oz bottle. Pours dark brown with a small creamy light beige head. Aroma is wow, very intense fresh hoppiness. Like I opened some hops, prebrew and whiffed in the bag, plenty of centennial and cascade. In the back, some chocolate and light roast. Flavor is rich cocoa, heavy on the chocolate with a lot of piney residue hoppiness, a touch citric. Finishes smooth and malty with a slight lingering herbal hoppiness. Medium fairly creamy body and a soft carbonation. I actually kinda dig this, not overly aggressive bitterness

Pours dark brown with a thin off-white head. Smells like a Christmas tree lot with a hint of big, sweaty guy whoís been working at a Christmas tree lot all day. Some spicy smokiness in the flavor. Maybe the Christmas tree lot is on fire?

HonkeyBra (3728) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - NOV 5, 2011
12 oz. bottle. Dark brown, near black, pour which big thick tan head. Reminds me of the bubbles atop chocolate milk. Aroma is dusty chocolate, some toffee, some amber malt, mild piney hops. Flavor is bitter, lots of pine and citrus, with the chocolate malt. This feels like almost a hoppy hot chocolate. Comforting, but as a beer, not mind blowing. I drink your milkshake. I drink it up. But, what Iím drinking is not this beer.

Finhead (1351) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - NOV 5, 2011
A dark brown pour with a frothy, tan head. It has an aroma of pine and resin. The medium body has a oily texture with lively carbonation. The flavor is bitter with little bit of a metallic taste.

Bottle. Dark brown thin head. Smoky plus resiny. Hoppy with a funky taste. Dry but not a long finish.

Butters (3963) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - NOV 5, 2011
Sampled at the the Sweet Sixteen Richmond Gathering. Dark brown pour with offwhite head ring. Smells foresty hop and slightly roasty. Alsmost smells like weed. Pretty tasty like the same. Not the best bipa iíve had, but its pretty damn good.

thegreenrooster (3537) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - NOV 5, 2011
Pour is a black with a tan head. Aroma is a big pine hop nose. Flavor is at first caramel malts with some chocolate and again those hops show up. Finish leaves a lot of hop resin on the tounge. This was a very solid black IPA.

wlajwl (4621) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - NOV 5, 2011
Pine and a bit of musty maltiness in the aroma. The flavor is piney mixed with a splash of chocolate. Very well combo of malts and hops, among the few Black IPAs Iíve had that donít seem like an IPA with black food coloring.

adnielsen (10089) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 5, 2011
Bottle @ home. Deep brown appearance with a light brown head. Super roasty, light wheat, slightly burnt malty, moderately piney, earthy hoppy aroma. Very roasty, deep malty, slight wheat, toasty burnt flavor with a good amount of piney, earthy hops. Really an interesting choice for a winter seasonal- donít you guys know that you have to either make a barley wine or an English Strong Ale for this season?! Drinks nicely but not very special.
