Noticeable sweet orange quality in this beer makes it a nice and almost weirdly light take on the style. I really enjoy this sort of thing.

DwarfeD (2790) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - OCT 6, 2016
33cl bottle shared at home. Very dark brown with a nice brown head. Medium body with low to moderate carbonation. Nice bitterness with subtle sweet tones. Roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, orange peel and yeast. Good!

Velquex (84) - Warsaw, POLAND - SEP 23, 2016
[Butelka] Wygląd: Brunatne, niska piana. Aromat: Dość intensywny sos sojowy, kawa, lekka czekolada, majacząca pomarańcz, suszone owoce. Smak: Pełne, kawowe z domieszką czekolady. Podsumowanie: Nie wiem czy jakieś zepsute mi się trafiło czy jak, ale sos sojowy zepsuł mi percepcję tego piwa.

leghorn99 (239) - Livorno, ITALY - SEP 8, 2016
Versa nel bicchiere di colore marrone scuro, quasi nero, opaco; schiuma abbondante, color crema di caffè, compatta, di ottima persistenza. Naso intenso di cioccolato fondente, arancia e canditi, profumo di caffè e malto tostato. In bocca sono ben distinguibili note di cioccolato fondente, caffè e tostate; gusto amaro. La presenza di scorza d’arancia è notevole nel retrogusto, conferendo a questa birra un ottimo finale. Corpo morbido e cremoso, aiutato dalla non eccessiva carbonazione.

hajsman (72) - Gdañsk, POLAND - SEP 4, 2016
Black with big brown head. Aroma of cocoa, dark bread, soy sauce and orange. At the beginnig orange aroma is at front but after while disappears almost completly. Bitterness is quite heavy and it’s a little bit salty in taste. Orange zest is noticable in the background. Expectations wasn’t met but beer is good. Orange zest could be more at front but still nice.

Bottle at home. Raisin and plum notes, rich chocolatey flavour. Medium to full body. Delicious.

batupata (26) - FINLAND - JUL 12, 2016
Almost completely black pour with a small brown head. Aroma has coffee, dark chocolate and liquorice with some malty sweetness. Taste is bitter and deep, no sweetness at all. Starts with fresher notes but the coffee overwhelms them quickly. The aftertaste is long and bitter. Overall a strong porter with an interesting twist, which is noticeable the whole time. Doesn’t really remind be of an orange though. A nice beer nonetheless.

MarcoDL (4206) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 16, 2016
Bottle. Dark creamy pour. Aroma of Orange zest, roasted malt, chocolate and licorice. Taste is quite fruity, with lots of orange, bitter citrus, licorice, cacao, roasted malt and a dry bitter hoppy roast finish. Very tasty.

Quite smokey and burnt with flavours of coffee and chocolate. The zest of orange comes in later and works very well. Great porter.
