Pours deep, dark brown. Tantalizing aroma of brown sugar, cinnamon, orange zest, coffee and hints of bourbon. Well balanced & nice intensity taste of the bourbon, coffee, orange zest, cinnamon, brown sugar with hints of light vanilla. Full bodied. Outstanding stout.

500 ml bottle into a snifter. A 2023 release, had 11/24/23.

Pours an opaque dark brown, with a short head and light foamy lacing. Aromas of orange zest, coffee, some bourbon and rum, some malt, some brown sugar and cloves, light cinnamon. Flavors of bourbon, coffee, orange zest, malt, brown sugar, some rum, some cinnamon and cloves, light vanilla and oak. Smooth, a very good full body, appropriately carbonated.

It’s certainly different, a great change of pace stout. The coffee, orange zest and cinnamon all show well. The brown sugar from the rum barrels also comes through nicely. Very enjoyable.

Smell gives off chocolate-orange aroma with a teasing hint of spice. Body opens with a wave of fudgy, classic stout body backed by a bright orange body with prickly cinnamon spice. Very satisfying and solid.
