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

A deep dark stout with a thin brown head. In aroma, a nice smooth chocolate with light burned wood, some fusel alcohol, really nice. In mouth, a light and smooth chocolate with light peated notes, not bad but overall, a bit light. On tap at Dunedin House of Beer, May 23 2010.

hopscotch (9379) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 3, 2010
Draft… Pours midnight black with a small, wispy, beige head. The nose is acrid and dark with notes of espresso and dark chocolate really standing out… more-so the espresso. Medium-bodied and watery with fizzy carbonation. Acrid, bitter flavors of espresso and unsweetened cocoa accompanied by light acidity. Finished burnt and moderately bitter. Needs more malt and more body to be a real hit.

GT2 (8683) - San Diego County, California, USA - APR 27, 2012
Tap at Miccosukee Root Cellar in Tallahassee FL. Pours deeper near black. Medium, rockier coffee head. Webby lacing. Nose is rich coffee and dark chocolate. No off character. Taste is roasty, quite rich, super heavy espresso and dark chocolate. Very good. Rich but drinkable. Lighter palate than its peers with no wateriness. Quite a feat. Much better than first batches I tried a few years ago before they had distribution. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On draught at Cigar City. Pours black with a medium frothy beige head that dissipates steadily. Partial rings of lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee and hops. Light to medium body with a roasty character and notes of chocolate malt and mild hops. The finish is short with a roasted malt aftertaste. Decent overall.

Ibrew2or3 (7050) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAR 3, 2010
On tap at the 2010 installment of Stogies and Stouts pouring deep dark with ruby edges and thin tan head. The aroma is kind of roasty to burnt with malt sweetness and a light level of black strap molasses around the edges. The taste brings up malt sweetness, dark roasted malts and a bit of burnt malts that heads into sort of an ashy sense by midway. The sweetness and the fairly thin body maintain all the way through into the finish picking up a sense of earthiness as well.

Flavors, lots of roasted malts, notes of coffee/lactic sweetness, light chocolate/mocha grainy mouthfeel. Nice finish with the perfect amount of coffee that does keeps a very mild bitter touch. Med-high carbonation.
