Served in a snifter glass.
Aoppearance: Opaque black body with a heavy dark tan head in the beginning settling quick. It was originally over a finger's length. Looks stunning.
Smell: Strong coffee and dose of vanilla bean. Very strong...the kind of stick aroma that stays with you for a while. /
Taste: Coffee beans that feel more like a full effect hit of espresso. A sweet bitterness to it...you can taste molasses and a pinch of a unique sourness to it that becomes pretty addicting. Complex?, yes it is!
Mouth: Medium body with mocha finish. Sticky and hard to judge but the minimum rating is at least four and a quarter.
Overall: Raw quality beer, Midnight Sun Brewing has established itself in it's own class with the last couple of brews I have had from them. This brew is at the top of the food chain when compared to others, if I see it again I would definitely grab another bottle. Salud!

Reviewed from notes taken over Memorial Day weekend. Last unique bottle from my November 2013 CA trip.
A- Deep midnight black, thick bodied pour from the bomber to a snifter. Creamy dark mocha tan head rises to a finger with good retention. Frothy ring remains to leave spotty lace
S- Deep dark roast grains and plummy fruits with dark cocoa powder. Toasted nutty feel.
T- Rich melted chocolate and deeply roasted burnt grains. Cherry plummy fruits give the beer a fudge truffle aspect. Toasted grain and rye spice opens up here.
Mf- Thick, creamy body with a chewy, silky texture which is also somewhat oily. Carbonation is medium low and smooth. Roast bitter lingers with no warming from the alcohol. ABV is very well hidden.
Fudgey RIS with a fruit feel that doesn't distract from the main stout elements while also having a bit of a rye flavor.
