Pours a typical black color with a one-finger large head consisting of a bunch of small light brown bubbles. Quite a bit of lacing.

Smells of roasted malts, coffee beans, and general smokiness.

Taste consists of subtle chocolate, some coffee, and a large degree of licorice. The licorice provides quite a bit of bitterness. There is also a large degree of malts, and some subdued hops in the background. Mouthfeel is quite light, with medium-to-low carbonation.

I've often been disappointed by Indeed in the past, but this is a really solid beer. I consider this to be my second favorite Minnesotan attempt at the style, behind only Bent Paddle's Black Ale.

Purchased as a six-pack for $11.

Really nice Cascadian Dark Ale. Ever since trying this at the Ice House years ago it has been my go-to brew if drinking an American Black Ale. Had on tap, from a can, at beer fests, this is a nice beer.

Appearance - Dark appearance with nice lacing.

Aroma - Combo of dank/piney hops dominate with a hint of dark malts.

Taste - Combo of bitter chocolate, bitter dank hops and some roast.

Feel - lighter body as one would expect for an American Black Ale, this one finishes dry. I like that as well.

Overall - my go to for the style!

Midnight Ryder pours a black color with a small lacing head. There is a very burnt aroma, with smoke, and hints of hops. The taste is very burnt, a little smokey, some coffee flavors, and a nice hoppy bitterness to finish. Good body good flavors. Overall its a very big bold black ale.
