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

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. Theres plenty of licorice and dark cocoa, too. Flavor is more just roast forward and the carbonation is really lacking. Its kind of chocolatey, I suppose. Some coffee grounds and a little bit of a green pepper note.

hopscotch (10983) - 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.
