4.19/5  rDev +1.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Tap at Grapevine. Sturdy black pour, finger of light brown head. Laces the glass quite well.

Aroma, roast malt, dark chocolate cocoa. Just a hint of orange zest.

Taste, nicely roast malt, dry cocoa are big. Orange creme sickle is prominent, but melds very well. Finishes quite dry, coffee and cocoa.

Solidly medium to full body. Not quite creamy carb. Coats well. Little to no abv presence. Orange in a big roasty; dry chocolatey stout.
Excellent 3rd anniversary brew, only bested by the Mexican Cake thus far for me.

4.36/5  rDev +6.1%
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.

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Viscous black body. Nice mocha head. Settles to a medium collar. A few islands of foam.

Smell - Dark chocolate. Citrus, but not a real distinct citrus. Some caramel.

Taste - Intense dark roasted malt. Coffee and bitter chocolate. Orange builds into the finish and an oily orange flavor persists.

Mouthfeel - Thick and very bitter. Medium carbonation.

Overall - I would prefer the orange flavor up front, but I'll take the chocolate orange combination any way I can take it.
