Midnight Sun is a black porter style beer, created from a blend of malted barley, oats, roasted barley and chocolate malt, balanced with a generous handful of hops and a wee bit of fresh root ginger. We really like it and hope you do too!

stravale (2543) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - JAN 18, 2015
Bottle from Beers Of Europe [170115]
Black, large frothy tan head, good lacing
Aroma of roasted malts, some roast coffee, soft spicy, slight savoury notes, slight hint of smoke, dab of dark bitter chocolate
Taste of dark malts, plain chocolate, getting a touch of ginger, touch of dark fruit, really tasty dark malts, fairly complex flavour
Palate - soft carb, medium body, soft sweet, smooth, good body. Finish of smooth dark malts, some dark bitter chocolate
Overall - On cask this is better. Always liked this, surprised I haven’t rated this. The spicy ginger works well here as it is subtle. One of their best beers.

Some yeast aroma. A tint of blood in a dark stout robe. Its black and white label suggesting mountainous adventure lead me to expect a tough stout experience. It’s rather a brokeback mountain expedition with a ladylike stout. Don’t get me wrong. It’s worth drinking and enjoyable. Its roots tasting roasted malt will accompany all the way through your journey.

Pretty good, especially for being relatively low alcohol. Only drawback was that I could taste it despite not being high alcohol content. Otherwise a good malty aroma. Good thick smooth creamy malty body with hints of chocolate. No real coffee notes in this which is refreshing!

BOTTLE. shared RW.Black pour with light tan head. Dark berries & spices on the nose. Real silky texture to start with dark malts, which carried through to the backend with the dark berries. Better the warmer it got Sourced Cape Cellars

Very decent porter, lovely Matt black colour, with liquorice and chocolate notes, and a decent abv giving it a good mouthfeel.

Piękny aromat mlecznej czekolady, gorzkiego kakao i zbożowej kawy. Świetna piana i nieprzejrzysta czerń. W smaku lekko kwaskowate od słodów, z mocno czekoladową bazą, aksamitne, lekko mleczne. Na finiszu fajna, lekka goryczka. Bardzo dobre, nieprzesadzone w żadną stronę piwo.

Bottle. Black colour, small brown head, very good lacing. Nose is very intensive dark chocolate and coffee. Mouth is quite gentle, not too roasty, dominated by intensive liquorice. Light sweetness, light bitterness. Light carbonation, medium body. Not bad, but not the kind of porter I like.
