Midnight Sun Brewing Company Arctic Rhino Coffee Porter
Hello beer lovers and welcome to another edition of the NorCal Beer Blog's brew review.
Tonight’s featured beer is Midnight Sun Brewing Company Arctic Rhino Coffee Porter - Ale with Coffee Beans.
From the Midnight Sun Brewing Company website: “Arctic Rhino Coffee Porter combines two perfectly 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.
From mug or glass, slowly savor the comforting flavors of Arctic Rhino Coffee Porter with rich and decadent desserts—like crème brulee, carrot cake or anything chocolate—or savory dishes that include roasted meats and root vegetables, caramelized onions, or sautéed mushrooms.”
Let’s get started!
Appearance: Pours dark brown, nearly black with a light tan head leaving good lacing.
Aroma: Coffee, roasted malts and a slight dark chocolate scent.
Taste: Coffee, roasted malts, dark chocolate and a slight coffee bitterness in the finish.
Overall: Medium to light bodied and easy to drink, Midnight Sun Brewing Company Arctic Rhino Coffee Porter is tasty. This 5% ABV offering may not be a go-to for me, but I would certainly drink it again.
