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!

Black with no head. Almost no aroma. Sadly lacking the ginger flavor or heat. Oily mouthfeel.

Pours dark brown. Medium brown head. Mild ginger and cocoa aromas. Strong ginger flavor right at the start. Texture is "fluffy".

JackMandarin (466) - Aberdour, SCOTLAND - NOV 9, 2016
Bottle from Tesco. Pours a dark chocolatey brown. Very light tan head. Aroma has some burnt chocolate notes. A light note of balsamic. Quite meaty. Dark brown malted loaf. The ginger is there but providing some solid support. Taste is creamy with a cheap chocolate ice cream note. Ginger snaps. Bitter coffee notes. Cola. Medium length bittersweet finish. Slightly spicy on the palate in the finish. Medium to light carbonation and a medium to light mouthfeel. Potent porter with a twist that sets it apart....

I prefer March Of The Penguins but this is a common sight and usually a cheap, dark option in most Scottish pubs.
Pours a decent dark, clearish cola-brown with a soft fizzing brown ringed head. Nose is soft soily leather, pepper and light roast with some drinking choc notes later on. Taste is much the same - fairly clean with a roasy and spice edge on the finish. Carbonation from the bottle solid throughout, nice sweet kiss to the rounded mouthfeel on the linger.

mice (1043) - FINLAND - AUG 8, 2016
Musta olut beigellä, kohtalaisella ja runsaasti pitsiä jättävällä vaahdolla. Tuoksussa paahteista maltaisuutta, suklaata ja kahvia. Myös maku paahteisen maltainen ja kahvinen sekä jälkipuoleltaan suolaisen salmiakkinen. Keskitäyteläinen suutuntuma. Jälkimaku säilyy suussa kohtalaisen pitkään. Ihan hyvä tuotos, mutta hieman enemmän tässä saisi olla syvyyttä.

Scrumpy369 (950) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUL 20, 2016
Bottle in scotland. Dark brown, almost black colour, medium white head disappears fast. Nose is roasted malts, faint smoke. Taste is low coffee low chocholate. Definitve ginger in he aftertaste. Watery mouthfeel. Surprisingly good.

Calisky (3057) - ALSACE, FRANCE - MAY 9, 2016
Courtesy of Jaghana. Couleur noire, légère mousse beige. Nez gingembre confit avec note malt grillé. Gout malt grillé, café, note fumé avec gingembre prenant le dessus. Fin sur le café grillé et gingembre. A force le gingembre et autres piment et épices fortes dans des bières qui n’ont pas vocation a ca, c’est pas mon truc. Definitely not!! Pas mauvaise mais "gachée" a mon gout

Patersoi (168) - AUSTRALIA - MAY 8, 2016
Hints of molasses in aroma. Black pour with dissipating cream head. Bitter burnt malt upfront. Not much mid palate and slight home brew teste on the finish.

arkanu (52) - Iasi, ROMANIA - APR 20, 2016
This is a good beer, but a bit too watery. The carbonation is almost absent, making it a rather strange experience, yet not unpleasant. Hints of smoke, roasted nuts and plums add towards the taste. It’s smooth and a pleasure to drink overall.
