Tried at the White Bear, Tewkesbury. Deep brown to amber colour with a cream coloured head. Aroma is light chocolate and fruit, no orange for me. Taste is a bit too citrus and chocolate for me.

Bottle that Dad shared with me, originally from the Grumpy Goat in Reading. Huge gusher but swift action meant I saved nearly all of it, and the dark brown beer and beige head that escaped matched my Mum & Dad’s kitchen carpet well enough that no harm was done. Some mineral flavour up front is initially outputting, but is fortunately soon replaced by chocolate, lightly roasted malt and oak. There’s no trace of the orange other than a little juicy sweetness behind the mildly dry finish. Grew on me quite a bit after the unpromising start, not a bad beer actually.

500ml Bottle - Dark brown with red tinges and a foamy head. Malt and hints of cocoa and orange in the aroma. Malty and slightly tangy taste with roasted malt and some noticeable yet not particularly strong notes of chocolate and orange.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask @ Falcon, Clapham Junction. Very translucent dark brown. Chocolate malt dominates aroma, with slight citrus. Bitter taste, slight powdered chocolate flavour. Ok but doesn’t really justify high ABV.
