Midnight Hoppyness....I was surprised when I poured this from a bomber into a pint glass, and it came out black....hence the name. Duh.

Good looking beer. Dark black with a large muddy head.

Smells of sweet chocolate, with a crispness that hints of hops. That would be the only clue so far that this isn't a stout.

Tastes pretty strongly of alcohol, starts somewhat sweet, and finishes bitter. Kind of rough.

Pretty strongly carbonated..

Overall, this tastes a little unfinished. Like it should be aged, or tweaked a bit in the brewing process. A bit rough for me.

Has a hoppy, spicy nose – definite rye notes and a hint of roast but the hops dominate. It pours brilliant deep dark brown with a 1” lightly tanned lacy white foam cap that dissipates slowly. The palate starts with initial hints of caramel followed by light roast backed up and balanced by some hop bitterness with fresh grain especially in the finish. The beer has dark beer roastiness but it is dialed back just enough and the hops have just enough presence to pull the beer back from being a porter or a stout and to evoke an IPA. There are just hints of darker malt sweetness and light chocolate but again the level of hops keep it back from falling into porterdom while the dark malts mellow the hops. It a little oily, medium full body and medium carbonation.
