Imperial stout with toasted coconut, orange peel, Onyx coffee, orange blossom honey, cinnamon, toasted oats, and Madagascar, Tahitian, and Congo Vvanilla beans

Aren't we all amused by now. Beguiling spectacles of incomprehensible granduer. Magnificent concepts of triumphant invention. All before us. All within our grasp. But fail, so do I. One of our highest ever ABV stout bases was skillfully blended down to 14.5% to create the ideal canvas for this bright and luscious offering. Huge amounts of orange zest was introduced with heaps of house toasted coconut to provide the flavor base that was then bolstered up with artful additions of @onyxcoffelab roasted Ethiopian coffee from the Nano Genji micro-lot, @spicewalla Vietnamese cinnamon, and a blend of vanillas from Madagascar, Tahiti, and The Republic of Congo. Indulge your senses and find gobs of gooey marshmallows coated in toasted coconut, fresh oranges bathed in dark chocolate, and the delightful aromatics of wintertime cinnamon macchiato.

Pours a black smaller tan head falls to ring some spotty lace.

Aroma is roasted malts, coffee , sweet cholate, coconut, coffee, vanilla, cinnamon, if you search maybe orange notes (some light fruitiness for sure). A big stout base like you expect from Burial, if you like coconut this will be your jam as it dominates followed by cinnamon and vanilla/chocolate sweetness.

Taste is the nose big on coconut, lightly sweet vanilla/chocolate with a good dose of cinnamon to spice up the finish. Little sad there is not more orange as some of the stouts I have had from Burial with orange have been the bomb.

Mouthfeel is just under big and chewy with smooth carbonation.

Overall a good stout, wouldn't deem this one worth the 20 bottle price even if it still is tasty.
