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

Useless Fact: President James Garfield could write Latin with one hand and Greek with the other—simultaneously! Leonardo da Vinci could draw with one hand and write with the other, also simultaneously.
