Draft sample. Pours near black in color with a small beige head. The aroma was, well, strong coffee with additional chocolate and roasted malts. The flavor was more coffee, roasted malts and chocolate, but surprisingly well done. The chocolate adds a creamy quality against the strong coffee flavors. The carbonation was a bit flat or this could have really been excellent. Medium plus body and smooth mouth feel. I want more beers like this from our local breweries.

Hits hard, but smooth. Nice blend of coffee and traditional stout flavors. Well made stout

Draft sample at Jungle Jims also labeled "3rd Shift." Wow, was this great. Buckets of coffee, sweet malt and chocolate. Big depth of flavor and silky smooth mouthfeel. Great beer.

Really went into this one expexting average, like most of Mt. Carmel. I was blown away. There is a battle between hops and High Quality roasted malts, dark chocolate, and rich coffee going on in here. Very subtle hints of vanilla and caramel come out and the oil slick on top is a real nice bonus.

went into this one with no expectations, as it was a surprise to me at beerfest. nice dark color with a roasty aroma. Coffee. Chocolate. It’s well blended together though, flavorwise. well balanced and drinkable. great beer! gotta go get a growler soon...

Growler to glass (thanks jmborggren). Looks good; pitch black with low carbonation and thin lacing. Smells solid; malt and coffee. Tastes GOOD! A nicely balanced imp coffee stout that’s pleasant on the palate. My favorite Mt. Carmel beer!

Snifter in the new tasting room at the brewery. This beer is also known as "3rd Shift". Nice, thick creamy tan head. Good rich but well-blended coffee nose. Big chewy body. Crisp carbonation, more dry texture. Big, satisfying roasty coffee aroma. Light hop notes. Not too bitter, very smooth and creamy flavor. Slightly viscous in the aftertaste. Clear very dark brown color. Enjoyable brew.

Tmoney99 (11093) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 21, 2012
Draft at brewpub. Poured clear dark brown color with an average frothy brown head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy coffee and toasted chocolate malt aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy roasted sweet coffee flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. My expectations where met with a solid drinkable beer.
