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 a dark blackish brown, with a small tan head that dissipates leaving little lacing. Smells of coffee and dark chocolate, with a hint of alcohol. Taste is pretty much that as well, mostly of the malts, very little on the hops or much else. Very smooth for a coffee based stout, but you would it expect it to be a little heavier with a name like that.

Pours dark brown with a tan head and aroma of coffee. Taste is sweet, heavy on espresso and coffee as well as chocolate, oatmeal, and roasted malts with a dry finish. Nice coffee flavor throughout, solid stout.

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 isn’t much else going on in the flavor but it’s 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.

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.
