When midnight sun started showing up in NY there were two questions...are we getting berserker and are we getting TREAT? after berserker showed up earlier this year i waited with baited breath for this long time want...and BAM, came to town this week! enjoyed from my Midnight Sun glass.
a - brew poured a watery black that sported a thin bubbly beige head that fizzled away quickly. little bubbles showed themselves near the surface around the glass...looked nice and tasty. like a TREAT!
s - festive. subtle char with subtle pot pouri. chocolate covered pumpkins. everything seems to be in the right place...really well balanced pumpkin.
t - flavor is spot on. one of the better pumpkins to cross these lips. nice pumpkin with chocolate and some porter char. the chocolate compliments this one really nicely and brings the flavor into the next level. some roast. the blend is really spot on.
m - a bit on the thinner side in general, but this is a porter and as for a porter it is fairly full. nice robustness and the pumpkin element is not a turn off, but a compliment.
o - overall probably one of the better pumpkin beers of all time. it is so good that i probably would consider it a chocolate porter with a hint of pumpkin instead of a pumpkin beer. midnight sun continues to impress with this TREAT!

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.
