Thanks for bringing this one out treyrab, this is one of those beers that you hear about but think you'll never see. My first offering from Midnight Sun..
Pour produces a really beautifully solid and soft hazelnut brown head that sticks around for the majority of the glass. Very dark body, with a little bit of light brown around the top edges. Very elegant looking for a porter.
An impeccable Smokey pumpkin, great balanced use of nutmeg, cinnamon, brown sugar. Slight chocolate, good caramel. Burnt malts are there but not harsh on the nose and the pumpkin prevails over all. A little bit too subdued but not overly so and that's my only complaint about this beer.
Lighter but not unusual for this style. Incredibly milky, all flavors mentioned above and crafted smoothly to put together an amazingly smooth and one of a kind porter. The pumpkin flavors are pleasing and dance nicely amongst the great and not overdone use of spices. The burnt malts stand nicely in the back, and don't take over the show but make their presence known in the best way possible. The chocolate malts here seem a little reserved, but play nicely with the other flavors. BRAVO Midnight Sun, I wasn't sure if this was going to be an overhyped offering, I couldn't have been more wrong.

Yum! I loved this beer. Just as advertisd- pumpkin, spice, and cocoa nibs. You get a nuttiness from the cocoa nibs as well as a bit of chocolate, some nice creaminess and almost a meatiness from the pumpkin, and it's all complemented by some nice pie spices. This a seamlessly integrated beer. Each component playing beautifully off of the next. Great beer.
