wyzzywyz22 (1890) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - APR 17, 2014
Bottle, Brewtique, Macclesfield. Cracking Happy Mondays influenced bottle art. Black pour with a reserved tan head. Top notch beak of chocolate, orange and roast. Similar traits comprised the flavour with some bitterness emerging towards the finish. Smooth and massively drinkable, I loved this, just so very tasty. Chocolate orange in a glass.... Win.

bytemesis (2581) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - APR 13, 2014
Bottle. Pours opaque black with a large pillowy brown head that dissipates slowly with good lacing. Aroma is very roasty, anise, cocoa powder, some burned notes, coffee, ashes. Flavor is light sweet and medium bitter, very roasty, cocoa, ashes, and a bit of anise. Not getting a lot of orange here; perhaps the faintest hint, but there is a strong bitterness with a zesty component to it. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel. Lingering bitter finish...

chimpgibbon (207) - London, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 8, 2014
Bottle at Well and Bucket. Glorious rich pour with luxury coffeeish crema head. Big funky veg on the nose, creamy malt. Taste is spicey cola coffee dark roasty with a deep oily orange hint but not much. Not bothered really!

MichaelAwesome (2993) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - APR 7, 2014
Feines Porter mit einem Mix aus Frucht und Kaffee. Ordentlich im Hopfen mit einer wunderbaren Frische. Danach etwas dicker, schwerer, bitterer. Nicht schlecht.

McTapps (2995) - Ruhrgebiet, GERMANY - APR 4, 2014
Bottle from trade with Meilby - thank you a lot for it, Kenni! The Porter pours out in a deep black colour with medium to smooth body and steady low head. Nice aroma of citrus fruits and chocolate. Taste of milk chocolate, coffee, torf, woods, citrus and herbs. Hints of nuts. Easy and nice to drink - a very solid and nice Porter.indeed,

TheCametron (1592) - CZECH REPUBLIC - APR 4, 2014
Bottle. Pours black with a creamy tan head. Aroma is dense roasted malt and chocolate. Robust. A nice roasty porter with a thick texture and a little extra from the orange zest. Oily. Really delicious.

Hopped_Silly (418) - California, USA - APR 3, 2014
Bottle. Best by 3/4/15. Black pour, with a deep amber hue and thick light brown head. Aromas primarily of dark chocolate, with obvious orange citrus oil highlights. Flavors bounce between creamy, dark chocolate, bitter bakers chocolate, coffee and BIG bitter, orange citrus peel. Big, lingering finish of the above mentioned flavors. Medium-medium-plus bodied, with an initial slightly prickly, bitter mouthfeel... which quickly transitions to a rich, big, roasted, flavorful finish. Overall, big, enjoyable flavors of chocolate and orange peel (as advertised) with a notable dry bitterness. Mouthfeel/carbonation could be improved, though is not bad. --- tasted while on a long journey to understand the world around me...

Opaque dark brown, good tan head. Palate is light and slightly airy and dry. Very light airy dark malt with a nice touch of dark chocolate. Turns to floral sweetness and milk chocolate. Seamlessly blended is a nice fresh orange zesty zip. Finishes smooth and airy. Really nice milk chocolate, floralness and orange. Very drinkable.

angel77 (525) - oviedo, SPAIN - FEB 21, 2014
Botella de 33 cl del rincón de la cerveza. 20-02-2014 En el momento. Color negro intenso con bastante espuma de color oscuro y bastante persistente hasta medio vaso, quedando pequeña corona sobretodo según va calentando. Aromas tostados y especiados bastante intensos. Cuerpo medio con 7 vol que se bebe bastante bien. Sabores bastante intensos a maltas tostadas, ligero cacao y especias con final amargo afrutado de la cascara de naranja. Me recuerda a Texas ranger cambiando el final picante por la fruta amarga. Muy buena, muy buena y para repetir sin duda.
