COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Midnight Ryder – a hat tip to Bischoff’s son, Elliott Ryder – is cloaked in mystery and full of surprises. A style of disputed origins and merit, American Black Ale puts a distinctly American twist on the India Pale Ale with five varieties of malt that give this dark beer a medium body and a complex array of flavors including caramel, chocolate and a smidgen of roast. Sealing the deal are six varieties of American-grownhops added throughout the 90-minute boil. This beer offers a resinous and piney character with just enough citrus to bring balance at the finish line.

Robust, rich, and hoppy taste with a nice crispness to it. Over all, very good.

It tastes very similar to a jazzed up Daytripper. Maybe a little more on the bitter side but I still like it.

This is pretty good stuff. Appearance’s an opaque Brown black with a large frothy head that lasts a long time. Aroma is hops and a little bit of roast. Flavors similar to know is fairly balanced and very easy drinking.
