22 poured into a half yard. Huge rocky mocha head, black beer. Smooth and creamy roast aroma. Deep and luscious, medium bodied, bitter malts. Lots o’ flavor in a small attractive package (i.e. low ABV.) The sun has just set and there’s very little surf here, so I’m going to go sit under the full moon and contemplate life, the universe and beer.
Poured from a 25 OZ bomber into a pint glass. The appearance is midnight black with a medium sized tan head. Rich malt aroma with a hint of coffee. The taste is pure malt goodness with a mild finish. Saeglopur (2241) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - OCT 3, 2016

Black body, with a quite small, fizzy, coffee-colored head.
Aroma of coffee, liquorice, toast, dried fruits, some cocoa powder.
Taste follows this, with quite a lot of sourish fruits and some caramel.
Medium, slick mouthfeel, with an average carbonation.
Finishes medium roasty, medium sour-fruity, with cocoa, some coffee, some liquorice.
Nice one, but not oustanding. A bit light bodied for the style and with some unusual sourish fruits, that aren’t bad though. Overall not among my favourite style examples, while still a nice one.
0,66l bottle at home from Ex-De Molen webshop. No BB date. As Port Brewing Midnight Sessions Lager 5% ABV. almost black color, small coffee-colored head. smells earthy, lightly acidic, light berry notes, hints of smoke, light vanilla, some bitter chocolate, light licorice. nice smell. medium body, rather bubbly carbonation, slick mouthfeel. tastes citric, earthy, lightly sour, light vanilla, some licorice, light green apples. finishes lightly sour with notes of green apples and some earthy notes. overall good, but dont like the sourness (especially on the taste) on this one. Might be that its too old, but its a bit distracting from the otherwise good beer. dfearnley (2247) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 4, 2015

Tap. Pours deep ruby black, medium creamy tan head, nice lacing. Aroma is roasty, smoky ashtray. Flavor is light sweet, light bitter, smoky, burned malt, almost a meatiness. Light acidity, lots of ashtray. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel. andrewje41 (4081) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - DEC 9, 2014
22 oz bottle poured. The bottle date on this is smudged, so I can’t really tell for sure, but I have reasons to believe this bottle isn’t brand spanking new. Pours a midnight color. Who would have guessed? Roasted malty aroma. Patchy tan head to it. A lot of toasty, roast malt flavor to this. Really flavorful. Typically when I rate lagers, I don’t usually have the ability to comment on the content and amount of flavor. Impressive though. This might be old, but it has held up. Good stuff.
