2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
500ml bottle: BBD Mar 15. Drank side by side with the Wells brewed ’Sticky Toffee Pudding Ale’ on 15th Sep 14. The Wells beer suited my sweet tooth more than this brew. Pours a mahogany colour with not much in the form of a head. The orange came through in both the aroma and on taste, but weakly, the chocolate even less so. Not at flavoursome or rich as i had hoped for and frankly a bit of a disappointment. It seemed almost thin in body depth and even the 6.5% ABV could not turn it into an interesting brew, for me anyway.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Great name. Pours a deep black color, topped with a decent cream colored head. There is a pleasantly roasty aroma, some caramel as well. The taste is decently bitter, slight roasted notes and caramel. I couldn’t taste the orange, but there are some fruity notes. Some lingering bitterness in the aftertaste and some spiciness.
Great one. Easily drinkable and filling.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Black. Beige head. Aroma of coffee and roasted malt, perhaps with a slight hint of oranges. Taste is slighly sweet, with some malt bitterness. Not quite in harmony.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from B&M. Pours mahogany with no lasting head. The orange is quite evident both in aroma and on taste. Overall quite bitter with dark chocolate coming through on the finish. A little sharp, but an interesting beer. Slightly let down by the thin, over carbonated mouth feel.

Chockwork orange pours a mahogany color with a light tan ring for a head. The smell is orange, caramel, cherry. The taste is as it smells, rich and sweet. Medium body, slick with mild carbonation.
