L: Very pitch black stout.
S: Strong bourbon flavor with a hint of vanilla.
T: The usual rush of stout flavor into a bourbon peak with vanilla then orange finish. Very elegant and refined for a stout. No syrup flavor either.
F: An orange candy dipped in vanilla and placed in a dark chocolate candy.
O:: An odd stout combining the usual suspects with orange zest.

Really interesting and good; smells and tastes like chocolate oranges which is pretty cool and easy to drink. Would definitely recommend checking this one out.

Nice dark color. The smell is sweet bourbon and chocolate. The taste is chocolate forward. The finish is orange and bourbon. All the flavors are very well balanced. Possibly the best flavored stout I’ve tried.

Sweet, dark fudge/chocolate, hint of orange vanilla aromatics on this one! Taste follows with a, heavy on the palate, orange-chocolate finish...very, very smooth with a hint of bourbon booziness. Really good!

jumped on this cuz their last choclate stout was soooo gooooodddd....... i think i got 6 or 8 of them..... letting this one warm up on a cold bitter SoCal day.... smells like cinnamon and orange with a little bit of chocolate. and tastes like those orange-chocolates i used to get from mom when i was a kid. at 13%, this is quite pleasant! very refreshing. super easy going down. and delicious! as it warms, the flavors run in to the warmer aromas and this is becomng amazing on the nose and palate, just like those choclate orange candies i mentioned from years ago.... i would so willingly give this almost all 5s except i'm getting stingy in my older years....
