BEER INFO

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

Style: Belgian Strong Dark Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.50%

Availability: Limited (brewed once)

Notes / Commercial Description:
Conspiracy Belgian-style Black Beer is the result of a collaboration between Midnight Sun brewers Gabe Fletcher and Ben Johnson and Pelican Pub (Pacific City, OR) brewer Ben Love. These brewers conspired during barley wine fest week to brew up a deviously delicious dark Belgian-style beer.

Conspiracy is opaque black with a creamy beige head. Black malt shrouds it in mystery; the Belgian yeast imparts intriguing flavor; the alcohol adds danger. If you're up for this mission, watch your back.

As the style on the bottle would imply; this beer is black. A tan mocha colored head is full and tight but fades quickly and leaves little lace.

Spicey lending toward a soapy quality aroma with dark caramel malts. Not a lot going on aromas wise however it is not bad smelling. Dark fruit of black currant, burnt blackberry, roasted plums, and some dark chocolate. Would be higher but everything is really laid back.

As much as I love the other Midnight Sun beers I've tried this one just doesn't seem to meet the standards. Now it is good but I expected more. Roasty bitter dark chocolate flavors with belgian spice qualities. Again dark fruits of black currant, black licorice, burnt caramel and some vanilla. Medium mouthfeel to full. Finish is long. I will have to see how my next bottle compares. As it warms more flavors come about and bring things together. Getting very nice.

A pretty nice Belgian Strong Dark. A bit of a roastiness in the taste, as well as a touch of coffee. More prominently, flavors of Belgian candy sugar, chocolate, caramel and fruit. Medium bodied, prickly carbonation in the mouthfeel, very little alcohol observable. Very easy to quaff. Midnight Sun/Pelican collaborate well. How about another new beer??
