Orange Wax

A: A big three finger head that almost got away from me while pouring the beer into a teku glass. The foam is a dark caramel color, similar to cola, with pillowy small bubbles. Endless retention that never seems to fall, when it does it leaves a dark soapy looking lacing with random placing on the edge. The beer is pitch black, no light peeks through in the brightest areas.

S: Big chocolate nose. Milk chocolate, bakers chocolate, dark cocoa with caramel and coffee. Vanilla is equally balanced in the nose as it warms up, no artificial flavor hear folks. Sweet aroma overall with a nice welcoming chocolate impression. No alcohol or off aromas to speak off.

T: Chocolate from front to back. Big dark chocolate flavor mixed with silky milk chocolate and a moderate neutral bitterness in the beginning. It reminds me of drinking chocolate milk. As the flavors continute the vanilla and caramel flavors kick in mellowing out the roastyness that starts creeping in. The sweetness is dialed in perfectly for my taste. Not overwhelming, but just enough to make it desert like with all the chocolate and vanilla flavors going on. There is a subtle earthy hop flavor in the finish that makes it kind of refreshing (for a 14%??).

M: The peppers come through as more of a tingling mouthfeel then a flavor, however its mild and a nice compliment. The carbonation is mild and makes the beer feel silky smooth. The body is thick and full with some creamyness for days.

O: Wow.. Lived up to it's name. And I wish more beers with this high of gravity would come in this format instead of bombers. A dangerously drinkable, chocolate filled, vanilla soaked, imperial stout that goes down like silk. If you don't like this beer you probably don't like the style..

Lots of coffee, which is great, but the coffee itself is not great. Bitterness in the range of an espresso shot of burned coffee beans. Coffee is nothing near was BCBCS has.

Peppers are very present. Gives the beer an interesting finish and warmth. Not super pleasant, not unpleasant, just very unique. Not usually a huge fan of beers with chile peppers, but this is very well balanced.

Glad I got to try a bottle of this. I would buy again, but probably not seek out again.

Poured into stone snifter.

Pours black, big charred brown head that settles a good ring. Lacing is minimal.

Flavors of coffee, bitter chocolate, vanilla, the charred exterior of a toasted marshmallow, roasted peanut, and subtle spice in the form of cinnamon and old cayenne.

Mouthfeel is medium with carbonation like that of a porter. A little slick yet a bit watery.

Overall the beer displays solid flavors and appearance but falls short in the mouthfeel and smell department. It's not a Huna or Abraxas.
