Pitch Black. Tiny head, dissipates quickly (Barrel Aging AND Citrus? you don’t say.)
Loads of orange zing and a little touch of the stout’s roastiness. Not too much on bourbon or chocolate, actually.
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 I’m not getting too much flavor from it other than that. Chocolate is detectable, but not too much so. It adds some bitterness, but it doesn’t add enough chocolate flavor to compete with the orange.
Smooth, medium bodied. Perhaps more carbonation than is appropriate for style.
I like this stout , but there are some things I would change about it. 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.
