BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Midnight Sun Brewing Co.
Alaska, United States
midnightsunbrewing.com

Style: American Porter

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.00%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Inspired by local artist & roaster Michael Allen's eccentricly-named blend of coffee beans, Midnight Sun's brewers designed a beer recipe and flavor infusion process that perfectly captures the alluring aroma, satisfying flavor and curious legend of Allen's Arctic Rhino Coffee Blend.

Arctic Rhino Coffee Porter combines two quintessential Pacific Northwest favorites: coffee and ale. The result is wonderfully romantic and robust--a duel-fueled porter that melds charismatic dark malt with freshly roasted coffee beans.

bomber into a FW teku glass.

Pours an opaque black with an inch and a half thick beige head with amazing lacing. Smell is huge on malty coffee goodness. taste is of coffee at first followed by some good malty notes. Some smoke. Very good porter honestly. Extremely flavorful for just 5% ABV. really digging this one. Super smooth and creamy. Mild body, mild carbonation.

overall a superb coffee porter. glad i have another bottle!

Poured from the bottle into a pint glass....

Huge 3 finger mocha colored head... very pillowy... stuck aroud till damn near done...

Smell was actually the best part... good strong coffe smell... not like the most expensive coffee but solid coffee... very strong in the smell...

Taste was a little bit of a letdown... not as coffee foward as the smell... pretty bland hops are well balanced nice slight touch of bitter at the end but fades away perfectly.... balanced well but nothing to write home about...

The mouthfeel was the biggest letdown for me. Super light... watery... and slighlty over carbonated for my tastes...

Overall its not the worst everrr... but Im gonna try it again to make sure it wasnt old/bad bottle.. to me there's way better porters out there and this is at the bottom of what I tried and have available to me....

Pours dark brown, blackish in the very center, with a nice mocha head. Aroma is medium roasted coffee grind and some chocolate. I would have to say that the coffee does comes across a little on the stale side of things. Flavor followed suit with a slightly hoppy finish. A medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, I was really looking forward to trying this one but was definitely let down. Not a great representation of the style, IMO. Perhaps I got an old bottle that had been sitting for a while? The stale coffee definitely ruined this beer for me.
