Share This Review

Midnight Marauder is an American Black Ale brewed by Due South Brewing Co., and for the purposes of this craft beer review, the ale was served in a tulip pint glass from a can.

Appearance

The ale pours black with a thick head of tan foam that reduces slowly and leaves behind gobs of sticky lace.

Aroma

The aroma is faint and mixes scents of floral hops and roast.

Flavor

The palate follows the nose and begins a taste of roasted barley that’s followed quickly by bitter floral hops. Sweet caramel malt rounds out the finish.

Mouthfeel

Mouthfeel has moderate carbonation and a medium body that doesn’t seem quite adequate enough to support the flavors.

Overall

The aroma is pleasant and the flavor is superb. The feel could have a bit more heft but doesn’t detract from what is otherwise a tasty brew.

Tribal Affiliation

Due South was inspired to name this brew after the classic hip-hop album Midnight Marauders by A Tribe Called Quest, a favorite among the brewery staff.
