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.

Absolutely pitch black. Some dark chocolate, strawberries and tangerines going on in the nose. The mouth starts very bitter, very hoppy, dark chocolate smooth mouth with a touch of whisky. Dry bitter finish with a touch of dark chocolate.

Thanks to daijokey for bringing this to JoeMcphee’s place for CaptainCougar come to NY gathering. Completely black color. Aroma is strong roast with choclate hints. A very espresso feel all around. Taste is a bit watery with roast. Otherwise very average stout. This really isn’t a "foreign" stout, more like a regular stout.

omhper (18954) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 22, 2009
Draught at Baird Naka-Meguro Taproom. Very dark brown, small head. Soy sauce and chocolate strikes first. Salty with solid ful packed body. Lots of hop bitterness that sets in early and lasts long. Plenty of oil and licorive to go with it. Fairly drinkable despite immense bitterness.

KyotoLefty (5895) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAY 22, 2009
Draught at the Nakameguro Taproom. Black with a milkshake-like head. Sweetish aroma, creamy, chocolate and a bit of coffee. Very sweet flavor. Chocolate and some café au lait. Nice, slightly woody, but the body is thin and the carbonation too strong.
