So there is the answer. The electric potential at the midpoint between the two +Q charges where the electric field is zero is nonzero and negative. The minus sign says that you have to do work to bring the positive test charge to the zero field point from infinity.
If we have a positive and a negative charge of equal magnitude separated by a certain distance , then the electric potential at the mid point of the path is 0 but the electric field intensity is non zero there.
