4.39/5 rDev +6.3%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25
Received in a trade and poured in to my Duvel tulip.
A - Poured a nice, nice dark brown black hue with a big, creamy three finger dark mocha head that fades at an average rate to leave very light lacing and a thin blanket.
S - Aromas of nice dark chocolate, almost fudge/brownie like, as it warms up the orange really pops on this. Very, very nice fresh orange zest and some faint roast.
T - Taste is very silky smooth chocolate, dark, rich, expensive. Very nice melted gooey chocolate, light roast, sweet malt, faint coffee notes. After the big chocolate there is loads of oranges here. Orange zest and oils, loads of chocolate. Really, really nice with a very pleasant lingering orange note.
M - Mouthfeel is super silky smooth, heavy, though, it actually feels a bit watery.
O - Overall this was a very, very tasty and aromatic stout. The orange is very well done here.

4.36/5 rDev +5.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25
A: Dense black that fades to dark red at the corners, khaki head that falls back to a ring
S: Fudgy chocolate, a little booze, and as it warms more herbal citrus
T: Smooth dark chocolate, sweet malt, then it moves to a nice citrus bitterness, finishes with aromatic roasted grains
M: Heavy imp stout feel, silky, smooth, and finishes a little syrupy. The sticky aromatic aftertaste lingers nicely.
O: I love this beer, one of my favorite stouts of all time. I grabbed a bottle every chance I got but was lucky enough to get it on draft for this review. If you like imperial stouts this is a must try. I know it's an anniversary edition release but I really hope Westbrook makes more.

Poured into a snifter
A: Tar black. A tan foamy head that dissipates to a filmy layer. Decent lacing.
S: Charred chocolate, leather, anise, woody. Oranges pop up as it warms.
T: Smokey with a slight citrus backing. Smooth as hell. Sweet. Very robust. Coffee notes. Oranges roll in on the finish.
M: medium to heavy with thick, chewy carbonation.
O: Drinks an an IRS. Even better as it warms. A real winner from Westbrook. Thanks for the suggestion, Cliff.
