Bottle poured into a pint glass. Pours dark brown with a beige head. The nose has malt and coffee. Taste is the same. I couldn't find the orange and the chocolate is very faint. I'm a big Alley Kat fan - but this was average. The St. Portersberg Porter is much much better. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A little orange, a little chocolate as advertised. Not much in the aroma. Flavors muted. Itís alright, but not super.

bulldogops (1048) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 4, 2013
Rating #761 - Nov 12, 2013 - 1 oz sample at Beer Revolution courtesy of @kgamiller. Dark brown pour with a rich, creamy tan foam that bubbles away slowly. Aroma is roast malts, coffee, and a light citrus. Taste is a unwrapped Terryís chocolate orange. Feels like Christmas morning. Delicious.

JayBar (1) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 1, 2013 does not count
Pours a dark brown, strong dark chocolate and cocoa aroma and coffee as it warms up. Orange is apparent but not as much as Iíd like. Tastes like a chocolate porter should, lots of chocolate, a little more coffee as it warms up, very smooth and creamy, goes down almost too easy. Let this one warm up and breathe a bit, definitely one to enjoy over the winter season.

Bahumat (105) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 29, 2013
This is a really lovely brew! Beautiful seasonal from Alley Kat. Note: This beer really only opens up at quite a warm temperature, closer to 12-15 instead of the usual 10. Let this one warm and breathe a little! Aroma: Dark roast, chocolate, and orange, only faint aroma of coffee. 8/10 Appearance: Pours a cola black with almost no head that dissipates to a fine foam ring. 5/5 Taste: Dark roasted malts and well-balanced orange, with a moderate sourness and gentle bitterness. 8/10. Palate: Silky and with a long roast malt finish, gentle astringency at the mid-tongue, gentle warming at the back. 4/5. Overall: Itís a great damn beer, and the only thing that robs it of being a solid 5 is that the aromas and flavours arenít as intense as some other stouts. The flavours and aroma are all there and are well balanced, but there could afford to be more. But Iím praising through faint damnation. This is a GREAT beer. Get it while you can!

DuffMan (6641) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 23, 2013
Bottle, shared with my father in law. Very dark walnut brown pour with a dense golden head that retains beautifully. Aroma is smoky, roasty, and brothy. Flavour is predominantly burnt malt, some bitter chocolate, but no orange for me. A nice hearty roasted porter nonetheless.

650ml brown bottle. Black pour, beige creamy head, sticky edges. Nose has cocoa and a bit of orange peel. Taste has cocoa/chocolate, some late orange peel notes. Aftertaste has cocoa and a bit of black coffee. A pretty average flavoured porter.
