Mikkeller ha dimostrato che osare con la frutta sulle porter frutta buoni, anzi ottimi risultati. Questa birra è stupenda: partendo dal sostegno di una porter ottimamente interpretata, si espande con una nota tostata-cioccolatosa che si chiunde nel citrico dell’arancia. Non si può non provarla.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very dark red-black with tan head that dissipates. Smells very roasty, bitter coffee, a little sour. Tastes similarly roasty and burnt, raisin, a bit of orange and citrus that didn't come through in the aroma. More porter and less orange and yuzu than I'd imagined. Decent but a little too acidic/raisin-y.

750 ml bottle. Served in a nonic pint glass, the beer pours dark brown/black with about an inch and a half tan had that sticked around for a long time. There’s also a good amount of lacing. It’s a great smelling brew, it smells like roasted malt, milk and bittersweet chocolate, oranges/orange peel, and some coffee. It tastes like roasted malt, nuts, milk and bittersweet chocolate, burnt/charred malt, slightly tart citrus/oranges, citrus peel and a bit of a mineral flavor. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it’s a bit creamy and slick. It’s also smooth and easy to drink. I like this beer a lot, I should have bought another bottle. I’ll have to grab one if I ever come across this again. It’s pricey at $17.99 a bottle, but I liked this one a lot.

Bottle to pint glass
Toasted malt, chocolate, and sweet citrus initially. Orange comes through along with some bitterness reminiscent if the rind. It's a deep opaque brown with a creamy tan head. The taste is a strong coffee and orange one, with perhaps nutmeg and lemon.
