The Grand Marnier oak-aged stout is served in a firkin (a 10.8 gallon metal cask) in the traditional method, which is cellar temperature and naturally carbonated (usually a little less). To create this, we put our Jemmy American Stout into the firkin and infused with American oak that had been aged with Grand Marnier. The base Jemmy stout uses 11 different grains, yielding a very complex beer with notes of coffee, chocolate, dark fruits, caramel, and toffee, which all pair well with the orangey character of the Grand Marnier.

Pours an absolutely scrumptious warm sable with a thick, fine-bubbled tan head that leaves plenty of lacing. Strong, smoky aroma has chocolate, coffee and molasses notes plus more than a hint of orange and a bit of brandy-like nip - no doubt from the Grand Marnier. Flavor is superb - all the roast coffee, chocolate, molasses and orange notes of the aroma, more of a brandy-ish nip, and a woody hint. Full texture has plenty of fizz and leaves a lasting smoky, mocha, slightly orangy finish. I know that you’re not supposed to hand out that many perfect ratings - but this one truly is a Bo Derek among beers.
