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!

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.

ogniskowicz (182) - POLAND - OCT 25, 2014
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.

kustie (211) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 23, 2014
Bottle@konttori. Opaque black color and small head. Aroma has coffee, roasted and caramel malt, hops and liquorices’. Malty taste with long a bit hoppy finish. Flavors of chocolate, ripe fruits, caramel and coffee.

Derbeth (367) - Kraków, POLAND - OCT 15, 2014
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.

HammerTroll (590) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - SEP 30, 2014
Completely dark color, no head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, cocoa, roasted malt and ginger! Some bitterness, medium spiciness. Medium long coffee and ginger finish. Very good porter with addition of ginger. Exciting!

After a long day this was a pleasant surprise. Not as powerful as I thought it should be based on the claim, but it was within range and otherwise a great experience ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
