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.

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.
