COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Export stouts generally are rich and roasty in flavor, moderately high in alcoholic strength, and sporting some noticeable hop character (normally registering in terms of bitterness and flavor). Baird Midnight Oil Export Stout enjoys a complexly layered roasted malt character (in addition to roasted barely we add three roasted malts to the grist -- chocolate, chocolate wheat and black) and a firm, straightforward hop flavor (bittering and flavor additions of Nugget and Fuggle, respectively). The color is midnight oil black, the mouthfeel is oily and unctuous. This stout will pick up your spirits amidst this dreary end to winter in Japan. In addition to the draught version, bottles (633 ml) also are available for purchase.
