COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Midnight Oil is an Oatmeal Coffee Stout. "Quiet and sensual like a moonlit night, this complex blend of toasted oats, roasted barley, chocolate wheat malt, and dark roast organic coffee, imparts an intense aroma and complex flavor profile. Midnight Oil will wake up your senses. We brew a traditional English oatmeal stout with a rich malt profile, then add locally roasted organic fair trade coffee while this ale is cold conditioned. Cold extraction imparts an intense coffee aroma and flavor without the bitter oils using heat processing techniques

Pours thick dark unclear black in color with a big creamy beige cocoa head. Aroma is nice oatmeal and coffee, light smoke, maintained even after 2 years, nice in the nose. Flavor brings some coffee and roasted malts on smooth body with a toasty ending.
