Wow, this is awesome and unique, thanks Beace!!!! Aroma brings tart chocolate covered oranges, are you kidding me?!! You also get the vanilla oak in the nose from the barrel, but balanced so well with no alcohol bite. The flavor brings a tart orange base around hints of roasted malts and bitter chocolate. The bourbon barrel oak comes in to mute the roasted malty profile overall and actually seems to enhance the flavor of the orange peel. The body is not too thick, and overall the brew hasnt faded seemingly at all in almost 2 years!!!!

Draft at Jackie Os 3/24/12. Pours the usual dark brown to black with a thin beige film. The aroma has the dark fruit from the figs, bourbon, hints of dark chocolate and the orange peel more in the background. The flavor is figs, chocolate and bourbon up front with the orange peel blending in, but remaining more secondary if not a touch distracting. Medium body and smooth due to the soft carbonation. I liked the Figgy Smalls and the Oranj by themselves quite a bit, but think that the pairing may be just a notch below them individually.

Draft. sample shared by alexsdad06. Poured a dark brown color with an average frothy brown head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy roasted chocolate, fig and alcohol aroma. Heavy bittersweet dark chocolate malt and dark fruit flavor with a heavy bittersweet and small alcohol bite finish of long duration. Full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. This is a solid fruit beer.

In case anyone was wondering, I wrote down the name correctly. This is apparently the blend of two previous nanos. Received in a 4 oz. taster glass. 4.0 A: Black color. Came with a small creamy light brown head. 4.5 S: Figs galore. Then leathery bourbon. Big chocolate. Sweet caramel and molasses. Very nice though the orange peel is hard to find. 3.0 T: Though still tasty, the orange peel does not work well in this. A tart orange tang is added that interferes with an otherwise harmonious collaboration of flavors. Figs work well though less chocolate is found in the taste. Leathery bourbon. Supple roastiness. 3.5 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Seems a little less creamy than the regular. 3.5 D: Good, but take out the orange peel and then you would really have something.

Poured on draft. Appearance is black with a tan wisp of a head. Aroma is dark chocolates, some fig, and a fruitiness that I wouldnt necessarily associate with orange peel. Taste is musty figs and dark chocolates. Earthily bitter. Booziness seems to have subsided in this beer, thankfully. A bit of an oddball beer.
