Poured into a tulip, nice tight mocha head, pitch black. Smells a bit sweet. Nice, rich, slightly thick mouth feel. Lots of bitter chocolate, maybe getting a bit of the orange with a tingle on the tongue. Decently hoppy for a stout. This being my first Westbrook stout, , color me impressed.

Growler from Piggly Wiggly, Myrtle Beach, poured into a tulip

A- pours a viscous opaque black with a small dark-tan creamy head that retains for a while, eventually reducing to leave just a ring around the edge

S- lots of coffee/fresh espresso aroma up front, underlying notes of chocolate, smoky charred malt, burnt popcorn and a hint of vanilla, can't really pick up any orange aroma

T- Smoky malt gives notes of charcoal and campfire up front, dark sumatra-like coffee notes blend with dark chocolate with a hint of sweet vanilla. The orange is subtle but noticeable near the finish, very reminiscent to an orange nougat filled chocolate. Smoky/burnt malt on the finish with lingers of chocolate and candied orange

M- medium-viscous body with medium carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel, eventually finishing creamy and silky, ABV is hidden well

O- The orange flavor plays well, giving it a candied-like flavor. The only thing that held it back a bit for me was the malt was a bit too smoky/charred, which seemed to overpower the subtlety of the orange, otherwise a nice sipper that serves well in growler format

EDIT: As the beer warms, the orange becomes much more prevalent, so I added .25 to my taste score
