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

Sample at Mile Marker Brewery in St Augustine, FL. Black color with tan head. Aroma of coffee. Did these guys just serve me cold coffee?? Nope, taste reveals carbonation and notes of chocolate, bitter roasted malt and light earthy hops. Light body, medium carbonation, somewhat acidic with lingering roasty/coffee-like finish. A coffee smelling beer that actually had no coffee in it! Great stuff.

Pours black with a medium tan head. Aroma is espresso! Taste is black coffee up front with a roasted malt finish. Not super complex, but a very agreeable coffee flavor. Interesting and easy.

Not my favorite. Coffee ground flavor, thin for a stout, chalky, then a bland aftertaste. Boring.

Draft at Fermentation. Black pour with a big creamy brown head. Rich roasted and chocolatey aroma with coffee, vanilla and earthiness. Flavor follows pretty closely with more dry bitterness throughout the body and finish. Pretty tasty Stout.

On tap. Big black pour with a small khaki head. Fair amount of lacing. Heavy coffee aroma with some chocolate and malts. Flavor follows - much less sweet than a lot of oatmeals, just nicely bitter black coffee and a little hint of molasses in the back. Only complaint is that it’s pretty thin for a stout with "oil" in the title. Very good though.

Tap. Heavy malt notes of toasted cereal and strong coffee, light resin and dough for the hops and yeast, with a big dose of charcoal on the back end. Head is small, wispy, light brown with good lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is very murky dark brown. Flavor starts lightly to moderately acidic and moderately bitter, then finishes moderately acidic and moderately to heavily bitter. Palate is light to medium, watery with a lively carbonation and a pretty dry finish This Stout smell pretty nice, there’s just not a lot of complexity in the flavor.
