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

GT (10017) - San Diego, 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

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.

asheft (3108) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 11, 2015
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.
