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.

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...

12oz bottle from phaleslu - thanks, Peter! Lustrous dark brown pour with a terrific creamy head. Very appealing. Nicely rich aroma, definitely getting the molasses and roast coffee in there, but neither overpowers the basic chocolatey nose. Thick mouthfeel, slightly dry too. Well balanced flavors, complementing the very solid base beer. Smooth and chocolatey with a couple of quirky touches. Sleeper that deserves to be better known.

Bottle from a trade with phaleslu. Pours black with light brown head. Aromas of roasted malts, dark chocolate and some coffee. Roasted malt flavor with a little bit of coffee. Medium to full body with moderate carbonation. Thanks Peter.

My last new bottle from Mt Carmel was their stout. Overall it was solid but nothing special. I think if I lived closer to Cincinnati they would replace Mad Brewer, Ringneck, and Indigo Imp as the preferred local brewery. Their beers are seldom exceptional but they very rarely fail to do a competent job.

Aroma / Appearance - Olive black and drab the liquid that poured into my snifter blended the smells of espresso, chocolate, vanilla, and hints of anise. It smells like someone did a breakfast experiment by replacing the milk in their cocoa puffs with black coffee.

Flavor / Palate - Black coffee and generous amounts of creamer leave their mark from the first sip. Chocolate malt balls wrap up a standard experience that colors within the lines. If there is a flaw to be found it is the harshness present around the edges. If this were a painting there would be little numbers behind each panel to help complete the image.
