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

PorterPounder (6291) - 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.

jnkor (327) - Tampa, Florida, USA - SEP 5, 2012
Aroma is full of coffee, but feels incomplete. Appearance is a bit oily (not a pun) but a nice dark with a small copper lacing head. Taste is a bit stale, but honestly more realistically coffee than other coffee stouts. The nice thick carbonation balances the bitter.
