3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at P house, this version says 6.6%. Poured black with small to medium beige head, I don’t remember orange creamsickle popsicles as a kid having chocolate in them but that’s mostly how this taste: chocolate, candy orange, malt roast and sweet vanilla bean. Wouldn’t want more than 5-6 ounces but an interesting beer overall.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft and growler. Poured a dark black center with slightly lighter edges and an average sized foamy light beige head. Aroma is basically a creamsicle over a stout, initial and main aromas are vanilla and orange and in the background is some dark toast, light coffee and chocolate. Medium body with average carbonation and a lingering sweet aftertaste finished by roastiness. Flavor is exactly like the aroma, lots of vanilla and orange lead the way followed by my classical stout notes like dark toast, light coffee and dark choclate. When I read the description of this one it was one of my least wanted but I am very happy to say I was wrong, this beer is awesome.

Growler shared thanks to Dmac. Pours out black with a small fading off white head. Aroma is orange creamsicle, light aroma of dark chocolate notes and light vanilla. Taste is very complex and a great balance of flavors, orange creamsicle with roast, chocolate and some sweet vanilla flavors, they really hit the mark with getting a perfect balance of flavor, this one was awesome.
