3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle that I picked up from Kris Wines, Camden area, Sunday 31st March 2013 consumed at home on Saturday 13th April 2013. Pours dark brown with nice cappucino coloured head, fruity with a light sourness on nose. Taste is fruity, I get a little orange, coffee and tangy fruit. Mmmhhh.... actually this is quite tart and whilst not great, its still enjoyable. A6 A4 T6 P3 Ov12 3.1

Iz should be a nice beer i suppose but i dont like it. The idea was to have orange with black chocolate (good idea) but it ended up being sour dry stout with no orange. Complex. But not my thing.

On tap @ Mikkeller in Copenhagen. Near jet black pour with a decent stable beige head. Nose has roasted malts, coffee, oranges and hints of smoke which is transferred to the rich and smooth palate. The finish is dry and moderately bitter. Lovely stuff.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
750 ml bottles shared by friends, split 4 ways. Pitch black color with thin white head. Aroma has a moderate level of roasted malts, chocolate and burnt coffee bean.
Body is leading on the full side with a chalky texture. The flavor is the same displayed in the aroma. I really don’t get citrus or orange anywhere in the nose or flavor but.... The porter itself is pretty good. No date on bottle so it’s hard to know the age.

Aroma is great. Citrusy grand mariner fragrance. Bitter and sour together, with faint char from the malt. Pours very dark brown with tan foam head. I though it might be thicker in the mouth, but it wasn’t thin...

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle... Pitch black with a small, creamy, tan head. The nose is a swirl of toasted tree nuts and milk chocolate with a hint of orange. Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and jazzy carbonation. The flavor delivers dark chocolate and more toasted tree nuts. Moderately bitter, carbonic and way good.

Flavourful beer. Has lots of nice notes, primarily typical porter roasted malts, chocolate, etc. Orange and citrus cut through to add a nice freshness.
