COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bourbon barrel aged version of Vixen Orange Cocoa Stout.

Vixen stout was our first Christmas beer in our reindeer series. The beer was brewed with 75lbs of orange zest and 20lbs of Ecuadorian toasted cocoa nibs. We set aside four bourbon barrels for three months to create an exceptionally complex and rich beer with a brightness from the orange peel that somehow keeps everything balanced. A great pairing for dessert or a snifter of bourbon.

Draft from the brewpub. Pours black with a tan head. Nose of roasted malts, lactic notes, cocoa, vanilla, oak, bourbon, and orange peel. Similar taste. Nothing dominates here; just a super well-balanced beer. Incredibly easy to drink.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 21, 2013
On tap at WW. Thick pour, could almost be from a cask. Absolutely righteous nose, after dinner chocolate liqueur with orange, with nice roasted coffee as an undertone. Slick but not heavy mouthfeel, not too boozy. Taste is immensely flavorful, somehow almost refreshing despite the richness of the flavors involved (I reckon thats what you get with so damn much orange zest, entirely worth it). Very well done.

Cybercat (3196) - Georgia, USA - MAY 24, 2013
Comes out of the tap a luscious sable with a nice light tan head. Smoky aroma has a firm bourbon overtone. Flavor is mainly apply bourbon, with smoky, coffee and roast malt notes plus a honey sweet hint. Firm,viscous texture has fizz to spare. Foxy Lady, Foxy Beer!

Tap. Smells like bourbon and chocolate cherries, maybe some coconut. Dark brown with thin mocha head and light lacing. Dry toasty and moderately hoppy flavor, with some coffee. Dry and not too heavy.

zizzybalubba (1380) - Elizabeth City, North Carolina, USA - MAY 10, 2013
On tap at Wicked Weed, Asheville, NC. Pours black with a short khaki head. Aroma of cocoa and whiskey, mostly, with notes of vanilla extract and coffee. Flavor is good with oak, dark chocolate, coconut, vanilla, and only traces of bourbon (in other words, not too overwhelming). The mouthfeel is thinner than expected but still, nicely done.

Draught downstairs at brewpub. Big black pour. Slightly thin body. Bourbon. Slight roast and coffee. Nice stout.

HopTsing (403) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - APR 29, 2013
From the tap poured a very dark brew with a generous dark brown head. Delicious aromas of chocolate malt and coffee. Flavors of the same. Full bodied and silky smooth mouth fel.
