Notes/Commercial Description:
Don't be afraid of the dark.

We offer to the world our Midnight Star, a black cream ale that just has to be tried to be believed. The black malt disguises the rich caramel flavors that just burst through on every sip. Combine a hint of rye for spice and lactose for a silky smooth texture and you have an ale that is unbeatable. Don’t be afraid of the dark! Midnight Star will kiss your palate and leave you wanting for more.

This is Boatyard’s version of a sweet stout.* It certainly lives up to its name.

Pours a dark black-cola color. There’s a sweet estery aroma, reminiscent of a Belgo-ish/stout mashup. The flavor is malty sweet with some “holiday” spicing going on. Finishes overly sweet with just a hint of an “off” note.

*Note: at the brewery I was told this was a sweet stout. Further investigation shows it’s advertised as a “dark cream ale” on their website.

Serving type: on-tap
