Not my favorite. Definitely interesting. You can taste every liquor in there for sure. Orange comes through as well.
I think I passed out when I drank this
Wasn't a fan of this. No where near as good as their original Mr. Sandman.
The chocolate/orange works really well. Very unique.
The liquor notes came through but also mixed it into a weird amalgam of intense and weirdly meh. I love how intriguing it is. Hate how complex it is.
Not a huge fan of the stout, but this was surprisingly good.
Brown sugar, coffee and huge barrel presence...was great for the winter time.
Wow! A slice of orange dipped in dark chocolate!
Deep dark brown with amber highlights. Small tan head disappears quickly. Aromas of chocolate, cherries, candied orange and light roast. Medium to heavy body with balance to the malt side. Some hop and roast bitterness though. Flavors of espresso, tobacco, chocolate, and orange. The orange is subtle, but nice in this way. Maybe a touch of alcohol but not over the top. Lots of residual sweetness that lingers.
Meh! Too much but not enough! Lots of heat! But no flavor shines through
Decent imperial, very drinkable for the ABV. Orange flavor mentioned doesn’t really come through
When I imagine drinking an imperial barrel aged stout this is what I think of. And then they added an orange delightful flavor into the mix. It’s like adding the comfort of Grand Marnier to this already sensual experience. I can only hope I can get to try this again.
Not my favorite Mr. Sandman. Cheers to River North for a bold barrel aged project. Complex barrel notes, obviously!
