12oz bottle poured into my Narke tulip...Dark brown pour with a light tan head that rises only for a second, then leaves a small boring ring. Not much of a looker, like that blonde chick Donna...The aroma is pretty sweet on the front, creamy chocolate. Finish is more coffee with a little bitterness, roast, and hops. Reminds me of an oatmeal stout...Taste just totally fails. Most of the sweet on the front is gone, just bland bitter coffee and alcohol. So boring, no touch. Skip.

Draft at the Cincy Winter Beerfest. Aroma is roasted malts. Notes of coffee and dark chocolate come out as well. Palate is thick and chewy. Flavor is a little sweet, bringing out a carmel quality. Not bad.

Surprisingly complex. Purchased to try a local Cincy brew (usually underwhelmed in these situations). The taste/palate begins with a big mouthfeel, but somewhat short on flavor. The swallow - finish is loaded with black coffee, bitter chocolate, and dry malt. Impressive. Filling.

Dark beer with a whispy galexy of beige carbonation on the surface. Soft chocolate nose. Some lactic acidity and chalkiness and milk chocolate. Sort of like a stale Hershey’s Kiss. Some grassy hops in the finish. Pretty solid stout.

This beer was poured out of a growler during a tasting at barefootbrewers house. Appearance - Poured a nice black color with tan head. Smell - A slight roasted smell with hints of malts. Taste - Roasted malts. Kind of smoky also. Mouthfeel - Heavy and very little carbonation. Drinkability - This is a solid stout. A nice very drinkable stout.

Finally tracked down a sixer of this at Biggs--perhaps this being brewed now?? Easily the best beer I have tried in their lineup. Soft, fresh, coffee, roasty flavors. I have been very harsh with my reviews regarding local breweries, but this is definitely worth drinking. Good job on this on Mt. Carmel.

5/26/2010: Mt. Carmel Stout... Aroma: Unsweetened chocolate; cold coffee. Appearance: Near black, opaque; 1/4" of tan foam with a moonscape surface. Flavor: Loads of dark chocolate; roasty malt and coffee finish; semi-sweet chocolate aftertaste. Palate: Medium-bodied, maybe a touch on the lighter side of medium. Overall: I really enjoy the flavor of this beer, but it needs just a bit more body.

Sample from 12 fl. oz. bottle at Marty’s Hops & Vines in Cincinnati (College Hill), Ohio. Rating #51 for this beer.

Dark brown pour with a small beige head. Light chocolate, dark fruit and coffee nose. Flavor is smooth and lightly sweet with some dark fruit, and some coffee grind. Pretty good.

Pours a very dark brown with a small amount of lighter brown head that lingers just slightly. Smell is roasty/chocolatey/smokey with a small hint of coffee. The flavor is very similar but with more malt coming through with a mildly bitter finish. Seems very well carbonated with a sort of light & bubbly feel to it (light for a stout anyhow). Good beer and something I’m glad I was able to try...
