Aroma - dark fruit, rummy raisins, spices, brown sugar and nougat.
Appearance - dark brown/cherry wood like body with a huge 2" creamy head, nice retention.
Taste - lots of dark fruit/raisins in the flavor, brown sugar, a bit of woody bitterness, vanilla, toffee...nice.
Palate - medium/full bodied, slightly sticky, sweet finish with a bit of a zing from the alcohol
Overall - glad to see the Bay Area now stocking Midnight Sun products. Most of their line-up is solid, and this provides another beer to back up that claim. Very solid and quite enjoyable.
nbutler brought this back from alaska and shared with the crew 6/6/10.
auburn brown pour with a small tannish head.
really yeasty aroma... very warming... along with raisins/cherries/vinous/pit fruit, brown sugar, peppery spice and floral hops.
lots of vanilla in the flavor and tannins on the finish... in between are notes of cherries, slight nuttiness, red wine, toffee, malt, flowers and yeast.
it is really dry and equally as tasty as the original. 8/4/8/3/16/3.9+
