12oz can from Justdoit1234 (thank you!). Canned 8/5/14. Served in a Terrapin goblet.

Pours dark chocolate brown with two and a half fingers tan head. The foam lingers before settling to a thin layer that laces fairly well.

Smells of pine, light citrus, roasty malts and cocoa.


Tastes like an American black ale should- coffee, roast, pine, citrus rind, cocoa and toast. Unlike many other black ales, all of the hoppy and roasty flavors mesh quite well.

Smooth, light body with supple carbonation. Pleasantly bitter roasted pine and orange peel finish.

Midnight Ryder is a very approachable take on the style and incredibly easy to drink.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours fudge brown with ruby highlights; a nice bubble show layers a tan head three inches thick; plenty of lacing action

Smell: Burnt toast, licorice and pine

Taste: Not nearly as burnt as the aroma, as the piney hops immediately temper the roasted elements; a bit of citrus and licorice fill out the profile in the mid-palate; the finish is nicely balanced among all of the elements

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: I find ABAs to be hit or miss; this one is a hit as the flavors complement rather than clash

Thanks, DaftPatrick, for the opportunity
