Midnight Sun

500 mL bottle thanks to lackenhauser as part of Veterans BIF.
Pour is a very solid, jet black body with any initially large, light coffee colored head. Some lace is left along with a thin film on the surface of the beer.
The first few sips seem a touch on the bitter side, BUT after a few minutes of warmth and a few more sips the beer starts to take on the flavor profile that a beer of this style demands.
Some light licorice amongst the slightly sour cream like notes. Some more sweetness comes through with a few medicinal, bitter and herbal flavors. The herbal nature builds and becomes quite a prominent feature. Alcohol is well hidden and the finish is neutral (in a good way).
Pretty interesting beer that stays true to a low-hopped, relatively creamy based beer that does a nice job.
