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.
