4.17/5  rDev +6.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Appearance - There seemed to be hidden streaks of orange in the blackness of the stout.

Smell - There was so much fresh orange in the nose coupled with the roastiness of the stout.

Taste - The initial impression was chocolate covered oranges. The chocolate behaved more like a dry baker’s chocolate. The orange aspects were very fresh, lingering nicely.

Mouthfeel - For the style, the beer lacked sone viscosity. Yet I would not say it was thin.

Overall - There was not enough orange stouts. For that reason alone, this is worth seeking.

12oz can stamped CANNED 10/25/19 (21 days ago) poured into a snifter at fridge temp 11% ABV. The beer pours dense nearly black with abundant medium brown head. The head recedes to a thin ring and leaves a few spots of lacing. The aroma is mild with orange, vanilla, cocoa and barrel all intermingled. The taste is candied orange first with the chocolate and barrel sliding in mid palate before a medium bitter finish. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with just less than medium carbonation and a semi dry finish. Overall, very good. Not a ton of bourbon barrel, but also not artificial and a great price at $14/4 pack. Worth trying if you're a fan of other orange/chocolate stout combos.
