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!

yngwie (14774) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 29, 2010
Bottle, at Cardinal. It’s 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

DanielBrown (4040) - 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.

TaxiDriver (1487) - Stadland, GERMANY - JAN 13, 2010

The taste is nice bitter, coffee and malt, also some liquorice. The body is very creamy, medium strong with a soft carbonation. A good Porter.

pivnizub (9163) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - DEC 27, 2009
Bottle: Literally black, small beige layer; solid dry bitter-sweet flavour, light to medium bodied; distinctive - quite dry - roast-malty and fruity (blackcurrant) nose; dry roast-malty and fruity-spicy (label says: ginger) finish, followed by a lingering bitter (malty and hoppy) aftertaste. Good, spicy Porter, but the ginger-root is not really necessary......
