Pours a deep brown color. Nose is very good with a lot of coffee, taste has more bitter h o plate and burnt and roasted malts. Medium body and moderate carbonation.

A nice beer with a pretty good nose.

I had this then barrel-aged version right after and liked this one a bit better. Cool idea with the orange peel, but I've had that executed poorly before. Not the case here. It's very coffee forward, on both the smell and the taste. There's a bit of sweetness at the back end from the orange. Kind of similar to a maple coffee stout, but you can tell it's orange. Overall, this was really nicely done.

Tasted in a snifter from draft at Kuma's Corner on February 17, 2017. Look is brown with a thin beige head and lingering lacing. Smell and taste is coffee with dark roasted malt flavors and aromas. Feel is medium to full in body with a creamy finish.

A buddy pulled this out of his cellar to share....it poured an opaque black with big tan head that eventually settled and left a spotty lace. The scent was mostly coffee...faint orange peel. The taste was also dominated by coffee and touches of citrus. The mouthfeel was fuller in body with smooth carbonation. Overall...very grateful to have tried it...I see that it is no longer brewed.

22oz bomber shared by TATURBO.

Appearance: Black body with medium brown head. Head pours two fingers tall.

Smell: Lots of bold coffee and nice orange note! Chocolate stout base. Smells awesome. Very unique nose.

Taste: This is a coffee bomb with a substantial taste of orange flesh and orange zest. Chocolaty stout base with a nice dose of lactose sugar. Big bold flavors that all play nicely together. Oranges taste authentic. Coffee is of moderate strength and tastes fresh.

Mouthfeel: medium body stout with low almost moderate carbonation. Undetectable ABV. Creamy carbonation.

Overall: Easily the best Solemn Oath beer that I have drank. This is a unique milk stout as well. Oranges and coffee in a milk stout...I am officially a fan.

An excellent coffee milk stout base is brightened by the perfect amount of orange peel. The natural bitterness of the coffee, hops and orange is balanced by a sweet lactose and chocolate backbone. A terrific beer.

M: Full bodied but not thick with average carbonation.

O: Excellent stout. Very well done indeed!
