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

brokensail (15444) - Dublin, California, USA - DEC 30, 2015
On tap @ Swamp Head. Black in color with a thin khaki head. Really nice coffee aroma. Kind of nutty, somewhat toasty, and a good bit of roasted malts. There’s plenty of licorice and dark cocoa, too. Flavor is more just roast forward and the carbonation is really lacking. It’s kind of chocolatey, I suppose. Some coffee grounds and a little bit of a green pepper note.

On tap at Gnarly Barley, Orlando. Sweet, butterscotchy coffee and molasses aroma with horehound candy and fudge accents. Opaque black under a lacy, tan collar and patch. Flavour is cappuccino and vanilla sauce, over a fudge brownie. Medium black malt bitterness. Medium body, smooth but not sweet with the medium carbonation.

World class oatmeal coffee stout, by far the best of the (excellent) beers I’ve had today. Perfectly clear but obviously dark, aroma predominantly French roast coffee, Java from the west of the Island, Really nice balance, dry finish, I could drink this all day.

AirForceHops (5859) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 14, 2015
Draft on a guest tap at Six Ten Brewing, Tampa. Pitch black color with head that died slowly to nothing. Aroma is real nice. Coffee is bold upfront with a light amount of oats and chocolate.

Flavor is just has nice as the aroma, big coffee profile right at the forefront with the oats giving a nice fuller body that seems bigger then 5% ABV. Flavor is strong at that gravity. Nicely crafted with plenty of lingering coffee after the sip. Sessionable and I could indeed drink a lot of this brew.
