Pours a rich deep umber with a dark mocha foam... Aromas are sweet milk chocolate with traces of bright focused citrus and deep roasted malts. The palate follows the nose with a great balance between citrus and chocolate. Smooth creamy mouthfeel delivers the flavor profile with elegance and restraint. Love how the citrus peak and fades and peaks again.. not overpowering but just enough to heighten the senses. Best citrus stout Ive ever had yet I will say Ive only had a few !

Shared. Had it warm. Has a hot aroma but flavor isn't hot at all. Not getting any citrus. Just a bit over meh.

Not getting a lot of citrus with it. Maybe bitterness of orange peel? Regardless, this is a great stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nice light brown creamy mediumlasting head. Aroma is slightly rich, sweet licorice, sour coffee, dark malts, dark sugar, grass, caramel, dried dark fruits, soy sauce, alcohol, citrus. Taste is slightly sour-ish, dark malts, sour coffee, dried dark fruits, licorice, grass, caramel, citrus, dark sugar, alcohol. Medium bitterness, slightly dry and watery mouthfeel. Nice, and overall a little better now than it was before. Even though the mouthfeel has become a little watery, the notes of unripe banana and ashes that I didnít like in the taste is now gone.

Pre-DLD bottle share at Hampton Inn. Pour is black with no head. Aroma of orange peel, coffee, caramel, spice, and grass. Flavor is similar but with more ash/roast in there. I didnít like this one too much.

MotherBrother (690) - Aalborg, DENMARK - MAR 25, 2014
Pour pitch black, with a small ní creamy mocha-tan head. Aroma is pretty roasted, which settles a little when this warms up a bit. Roasted coffee, bitter chocolate, licorice and ever so slightly orange/green notes somewhere.. The taste is pretty bitter, with a faint sweet touch up front. Medium bodied, with a slightly flat carbonation. Pretty well balanced.
