Mt. Carmel “ Stout”
Mt. Carmel Brewing Company – Cincinnati, Ohio USA
Stout (ABV 6%)

[Best served in a Pint glass]

Rating: 3.3/5.0

Aroma: 7/10
Appearance: 3/5
Taste: 7/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 13/20

The pour was jet black with a slight dark brown hue around the edges and had an average sized (1-2 finger) light brown frothy head, that reduced quickly to just a thin layer of residue which produced a bit of fair lacing.

The aroma was of a roasted grain malt and a mild leathery yeast with notes of chocolate, coffee and molasses with just a hint of dark fruit.

The taste was lightly sweet and a bit bitter with notes of chocolate and molasses throughout with a strong coffee note somewhere in between with a nice pronounced dark fruit presence at the end. The flavor hung on for a decent amount of time which allowed the fruity coffee flavor to be fully enjoyed.

Mouthfeel was just a tad beyond medium in body with the texture being creamy and a little oily and having an almost flat carbonation.

Overall a nice robust Stout with a unique fruity finish.
