In a blind tasting by BJCP trained experts, this beer rated
12 West Brewing Midnight Run
"Big, dark, almost dank, fresh-roasted bag-o’-coffee-beans nose; a fruity apple note shows as it warms. Ample fresh-dark-coffee flavor throughout, green-pepper note; slight sweetness, with judicious roast bitterness kept in check. Dry and bitter but fairly light on the palate—austere. Some astringency and acidity lingering, but overall refreshing."
