Midnight Sun Brewing Company Panty Peeler (365 Day 356)

Midnight Sun Panty Peeler

Panty Peeler. Can I say that in the work place? Unfortunately there isn’t much you can say in the work place that will you get in you trouble. I am sure that “panty” by itself is bad enough but adding peeler to form the combo “panty peeler”, just makes it a bit worse. Good thing this isn’t the work place but a place to chat about American craft beer.

Midnight Sun Brewing Company brews up Panty Peeler which is a Belgian Tripel. Phenols, fruity, yeast, and caramel all top the list of characteristics of this beer. There is a nice balance but a bit of sweet finish that isn’t well balanced. The high alcohol is well hidden.

My second beer from Midnight Sun and I have been satisfied by both. Time to dig another out of the cellar. Enjoy!+

Aroma: 9 (25%), Taste: 7 (25%), Look: 9 (15%), Drinkability: 8 (35%), Overall: 8.2

Midnight Sun Brewing Company Artic Rhino Coffee Porter (365 Day 348)

Midnight Sun Artic Rhino Coffee Porter

During this year long trek of 365 American craft beers I have had beers from about a handful of states that I hadn’t before I started. With American craft beer number 348 I can no mark Alaska off my list. I believe I have had some beers from Alaska in the past but not one that I officially put up on the site and reviewed. I also believe that I have at least one other beer in the cellar that originates from Alaska so I can increase my review count for the state by 100%.

Artic Rhino Coffee Porter by Midnight Sun Brewing Company is an American Porter with, you guessed it, coffee. The coffee plays a fairly hefty roll in the profile of the beer which I think detracts from the subtleties of the underlying porter.

The beer was a bit above average and I believe I wouldn’t change my mind without the coffee. I am looking forward to trying the other beer(s) from Midnight Sun in the cellar. Enjoy!

Aroma: 8 (25%), Taste: 7 (25%), Look: 9 (15%), Drinkability: 7 (35%), Overall: 7.6
