SlackerMads (1439) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 6, 2014
Bottle. Black with a large brown head, good retention and lace. The orange zest is very evident in the nose along with some chocolate notes. Flavour is more dominated by malty notes; roasted, chocolate, cocoa with the orange kicking in after a short while. The texture is very nice, soft and creamy. Has some roasted bitterness in the finish.

gendv138 (1041) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - APR 29, 2014
330 ml bottle poured into a nonic pint glass. Best by 03/04/15. Black with almost 3 fingers of tan head. Decent lacing as the head recedes. Aromas of coffee, bitter roast, dark chocolate, subtle orange peel. Tasting notes of dark chocolate, coffee, roast, toasty and nutty notes, light soy sauce, maybe some very light orange peel. Medium body with a dry finish. Medium carbonation, creamy mouthfeel. Not getting a whole lot of orange zest but maybe it’s in the bitterness.
