Picked this up in a great trade with Mike! Pitch black pour with an initial three finger caramel-colored foamy head with good retention and crazy lacing. Big malty, nutty, subtly sweet nose with hints of coffee, dark chocolate, caramel, brown sugar, and cocoa. The taste is dominated by the roasty malt along with hints of dark chocolate, espresso, vanilla, cinnamon, soy sauce, toffee, and some subtle licorice and smoke. As it warms, a fair amount of hoppiness emerges as well. The mouthfeel starts off a bit thin and fizzy, but as it comes to temperature it thickens up a bit and was somewhat creamy with a nice bitter hop finish. Overall, this is another solid offering from Midnight Sun. I'll definitely be checking out more beers from these guys!

22 ounce bottle into snifter, no bottle dating. Pours pitch black color with a 1 finger dense tan head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of big dark chocolate, roasted malt, cocoa, coffee, caramel, toast, char, floral, pine, and roasted earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of roasted malt notes with moderate hops. Taste of big dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, roasted malt, caramel, toast, char, floral, light pine, and roasted earthiness. Moderate floral bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark chocolate, coffee, cocoa, roasted malt, toast, char, floral, pine, and roasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Fantastic balance and complexity of roasted malt flavors; with nice hop bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation medium-full body; with a creamy, chalky, and moderately sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a fantastic Export stout! All around great balance and complexity of roasted malt flavors with moderate hops; and very smooth to sip on. A highly enjoyable offering.

Another one to try from a great brewery that I wish I could get a lot more of. Thanks to gockets (Reddit).

Pours a darker colored fizzy smaller head that fades at a slower pace, nice lacing almost everywhere, pretty much pitch black beer.

Nose brings plenty of dark malts, black patent, some roast, a bit of smoked malt as well, faint dusty cocoa and even light creamy choc, dry clean toasty stout,

Taste starts with more dark malts, thick rich bitter roasty malts, some black malt, little roast, light smoked malt, dusting of cocoa, but also a light creamy cocoa. Quite dry overall, with an earthy dusty char that also brings some bitterness. Then hops too, quite bitter spicy chewy briney spicy hops and light acrid bitter roast combine to a very bitter taste. The dark malts bring a light char acrid taste, as well as faint bready biscuit malted milk ball flavor. Finish is super dry, very bitter with acrid charred malt bitterness as well as earthy spicy bitter hops, light cocoa and acrid char with roasted coffee too.

Mouth is fuller bodied, very dry almost gritty, decent carb, touch of warming booze.

Overall ok, just too much acrid roast char bitterness and combined with the spicy earthy chewy hops just gets overbearing, and it's very hard to actually enjoy this beer because of that.
