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 pitch black color, ruby notes. earthy brown soil colored head. robust malts, rich and roasted. hints of toffee and very light faint chocolate. lots of coffee notes . carbonation is a little off but could be bar error.

Ok, this is a sweeter stout thatís got a decent roastiness, some slight semblance of coffee I suppose. Itís decent, but not really all that coffee-like.

From the Jug at the GABF, Colorado Convention Center Denver 18/09/2010 Fruit and roast aromas. Black a little rich and sweet on the palate with a hint of dryness in a coffee roast finish.

Draft. Pours black with a tan head. Aroma is great: chocolate, lots of coffee, roasted malts. Flavor is coffee and light hop bitterness; somewhat watery and closer to drip coffee than coffee stout.

On tap at Proof, pours a nice dark black, great coffee aroma, first taste is extremely underwhelming, very watery, little flavor, disappointing after how great it smelled.

What a wonderful new romantic flavor, complex aroma, with a hint of chocolate perhaps, but more of a coffee malt. Medium size brown head, thin, not too frothy. My first pint was enjoyed at The WAREHOUSE of Gainesville, Florida... as was my second, third, and fourth. This Stout was delicious, glass after glass, and it didnít make me feel full or bloated. I was pleased with itís rich dark color, itís full body and flavor. Great drinkability. Went down very smooth, as I was a bit nervous when I saw the word oil in itís name. I highly recommend this beer to all of the Stout lovers out there. Currently available in kegs, soon to be bottled in a new bottling plant in the Gainesville, Florida area, as I was informed by the owner of The WAREHOUSE RESTUARANT.

9/12/10. Black pour, not much brown head. Aroma is definite coffee and chocolate - promising. Very disappointing flavor... sour, plain, and burnt. Not distinctly coffee, and barely any chocolate or anything going on in it. Meh.

First off, if you been paying attention to my ratings (and I hope you have, there is a test), you have probably deduced that I love coffee stouts. Some might even call me a sucker for íem. So this was right in my wheelhouse. Great coffee aroma and flavor, maybe a hint of chocolate in the background. Thinner bodied, so itís easy to drink. Really tasty brew.

Had this at Tippleís in Gainesville, FL. Very strong coffee flavor overpowers any other layers to the beer. If you like this, you will like this beer. I expected a little more oil like texture to it, but it had none, and really did not sit very heavy on me. I would play $1.50 for a draft, and drink it all night long.
