COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Smokey, Chocolatey,...Orangey??? That’s right a smoked brown porter with orange zest. We start out with Maris Otter base malt and add cherry smoked malt, chocolate and honey malt giving a sweet smokey and chocolatey beer. Then the zest of many oranges is added after the boil to complement this beer’s smooth and complex flavors.

Really unusual and offputting flavour. The pour is a dark brown with a thin brown head. The nose has a thin wafting smoky and earthy malt with light toffee and an odd fruity aroma. Sweet and malty flavour with a odd slightly off tasting smoked note with ashy smoke in the finish. Not horrible but the smoke and odd fruity flavours and just weird together.

VictorStr (1424) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - APR 21, 2013
[Tap @ Mikkeller & Friends] Svart men minimalt skum. Rostade och rökiga toner, skulle kunna sammanfatta aroman med rökt ölkorv.

On tap, at The Local Pub (Athens, Greece). Dark red brown, with a small head. Light body, chocolate and orange flavours. A bit like drinking an orange Aero bar. But not in a bad way, Slightly mad, like all ATG’s brews. (Also, not in a bad way.)

Poor appearance with no head at all, dark brown color. Smells of smoke and ash, smoked bacon with hints of chocolate and caramel. Tastes more or less the same.
