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

Chipalsa (1310) - Florida, USA - FEB 3, 2012
UPDATED: AUG 12, 2012 This stout was big and unbalanced - which can be a good thing. If you like the coffee/roasted notes in stouts, then this brew is perfect for you. The aroma was thick and almost smoky with cocoa and coffee notes. The taste was again, very roasted but with a rather light malt undertone. Finished robust, bitter and with a distinct texture that was dry and light.

Draft at CCB. Pour is, of course, black with a tan head. Nose is light chocolate and copious amounts of roast and coffee. The taste is straight up roasted coffee beans. LOTS of roast. If you like coffee stouts, then this one should fit the bill quite nicely. Unfortunately there isnít much else going on in the flavor but itís still a nice brew.

On tap at WOB Port Orange. Super dark color with a thin brown head. Very dry flavor with hints of roasted malts. Aroma had hints of dark chocolate and nuts. Not too bad but perhaps just a little too dry.

burg326 (3884) - Florida, USA - NOV 5, 2011
On draft poured a dark black color with bitter chocolate aroma, and coffee. Flavors match the aroma, with more focus on the coffee flavor rather than it being balanced like the smell.

Brown/black with frothy tan head and clinging lace. Roasted malt, coffee, and a good malt bitter. Very roasty dry finish. A tad thin and watery but a nice beer.

Aurelius (4376) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 5, 2011
On tap, 5th Avenue Tap Room, wifeís 30th class reunion. Inky. Lots of roast and coffee, dark cocoa, lightly bittered otherwise. Some spiciness in the finish. This had a medium mouth. I was well into the evening and without a notepad when I picked this one up. Will do a more in-depth rating someday.

PorterPounder (5709) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUL 20, 2011
Tallahassee, Fl - on tap - Fermentation Lounge. Pitch black pour, sticky, mocha colored head that leaves a bit of lacing. Aroma has some nice chocolate accents and a touch of bitter chocolate. Rich flavor that matches the aroma with the coffee and chocolate notes. Hints of marshmallows and licorice in the back end. Sours a bit near the end with some vanilla funkiness. Thick enough mouthfeel.
