Midnight Sun Obliteration VII
From Midnight Sun Brewing – Obliteration VII offers an interesting iteration in the Obliteration series: American Imperial Stout. This beer’s aroma, flavor and finish all recite the same story—lush, velvety dark malts introduce layers of piney, citrusy hops which play out to a beautiful yet bittersweet finish. Completely genius.
Midnight Sun Brewing – Midnight Sun Obliteration VII – On tap poured into a flute. 8.5% abv.
Appearance: Pours a dark brown with a small tan right of brown atop. Leaves spotty lacing behind.
Aroma: Dust and cocoa powder.
Taste: Bitter and burnt roast, chocolate, dust and spicy hops.
Mouthfeel: Dry, fizzy, full bodied.
Overall: Too burnt and roasty and bitter for me. I know there are some who love a dry stout, and hate super sugary Imperial Stouts, so this beer is for you my friend.

I love this beer! I’m one of those guys that likes dry roasty stouts and this one is super hoppy, very black IPA like but it has the malts underneath to balance. 🙂
