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.

Leighton (18525) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 7, 2016
Draft at Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2014 - Session 2. Pours deep brown with a creamy, tan head. The nose holds dark bread and milk chocolate. Medium sweet flavour with notes of toasted brown bread, light earth, roasted malts, burnt caramel. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Sweet on the finish, with basic and mild roast character, some sugary chocolate. OK stuff overall, just a bit one-dimensional.

StueyD (1566) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - DEC 15, 2014
A pitch black beer with a deep mocha coloured head. A rich roasted malt aroma, loads of espresso coffee, dark chocolate, dried fruit and nutty. Dry mouthfeel. The taste starts off dry, with flavours of nut, espresso coffee, dark chocolate, then a smooth sweeter flavour comes through, with raisiny dried fruit and a dark caramel, bordering on toffee taste that balances the dryness. The finish is long and smooth. Tasted at BierCaB, Barcelona. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
