Draft to snifter. Looks good; a mosrly opaque brownish-black with beige lacing. Smells solid; malt, booze, and orange zest. Tastes like it smells, only overly zesty. Average on the palate. More malt and less orange zest would give this beer better balance and make it more enjoyable.

A: Pitch Black. Tiny head, dissipates quickly (Barrel Aging AND Citrus? you donít say.) S: Loads of orange zing and a little touch of the stoutís roastiness. Not too much on bourbon or chocolate, actually. T: Follows the nose. Loads of orange and the flavors typical to Mt. Carmel Stout: Well balanced creamy sweetness and roastiness. A touch of the alcohol from the bourbon barrel, but not Iím not getting too much flavor from it other than that. Chocolate is detectable, but not too much so. It adds some bitterness, but it doesnít add enough chocolate flavor to compete with the orange. M: Smooth, medium bodied. Perhaps more carbonation than is appropriate for style. O: I like this stout (I want to like it more than I do, I guess), but there are some things I would change about it (But then, I donít own a brewery and donít really know what such changes would entail). To me, it tastes like they didnít give it enough time in that barrel. Also, it may have changed things to have brewed the batch a little bit more special for this- maybe to a higher ABV (with the pumped up sweetness that that often affords), and with the chocolate-orange ratio tweaked a little bit. It tastes good to me, but I think the orange is too overpowering to let the other elements really shine as well.

Tap. Poured dark reddish brown color with a large frothy brown head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy toasted chocolate malt, citrus and sweet woody bourbon aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy toasted malt, citrus and bourbon flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. Solid brew that exceeded my expectations.

Rate from two 5.5oz snifters, on tap at the Public House. Black color. Bubbly tan head. Little lace. Nice orange / dark chocolate nose. Some bourbon, too. Bourbon and orange works very well together, the bourbon is not overpowering, well-balanced, as is the orange. Medium body, lighter carbonation, good texture. Kind of an orange creme soda note here. Good bittersweet. Awesome cocoa aroma. Really interesting, unique and tasty. Iíve had a bunch of bourbon stouts, maybe a couple orange stouts, but never a bourbon orange stout, definitely a new experience for me. So much flavor and complexity, here, yet at the same time, pretty easy to drink, and mildly refreshing, even, with that orange zest. Impressive
