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!

JohnRMurdoch (3790) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - APR 14, 2010
Bottle from Tesco. Dark chocolate toffee aroma. Almost black colour with big frothy brown head. Very smooth texture with chocolate caramel flavour and malty aftertaste. I donít normally like dark ales but this is a really good one.

DanielBrown (4112) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 27, 2010
Bottle from Global Wines, Bearwood. Cocoa powder aroma. Slippery mouthfeel, which compliments the light, burnt-toast flavouring, which retreats to leave only a momentary afterflavour. Well balanced in the gob, with sweet and roast intermingling nicely. Not big, but very pleasant.

yngwie (15382) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 29, 2010
Bottle, at Cardinal. Itís a dark brown beer with a reddish touch. A small beige head sits on top. The nose is tar-ish with something ginger-like, a little peat, and overall quite roasted. Dry, almost thin in the mouth, salty, tar-like flavor with roastyness and some peat and ginger. Roasted finish. A quite nice one, revealing itself one layer at the time. 091106

UPDATED: NOV 8, 2010 500 ml. Opaque black with a quarter inch of enduring foam above. Mild aroma of caramel, cream and ash. Flavor is bitterish coffee and charred wood, balanced by vanilla and light marshmallow. Finish has the lightest hint of ginger. Medium-heavy body is smoothly carbonated, roasty dry and lightly tingly.

nbutler11 (1267) - Rota, SPAIN - APR 22, 2010
Bottle hauled back from a shop in Berlin. Pours roasted black with a creamy tan head that leaves a fair amount of lacing. Smells of Danish stick and mud. Tastes of toasted barley, malts, cream, cocoa, and hops. Silky on the palate. Nice.

Suttree (5548) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 3, 2010
Easily the best of the new Williams Brothers stuff in town (so far) and the only one Iíd consider buying again (so far). Black, with a big, loose beige head. Very smooth and rich aroma and flavor, with really nice milky coffee flavors. Some subtle red wine as it warms. Finishes rather dry.
