3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

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.

This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a head of foamy brown colored bubbles that were and left behind a typically carbonated opaque dark black brown colored body and an excellent lacing. The mild aroma was dark malt. The thick mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a strong mild roasted malt aftertaste. The yummy flavor contained notes of roasted malt toasted malt burnt malt dark malt and hops. Delicious and one I would certainly like to have again.

Bottle. Black, creamy. Sour citrus on nose, huge black roast, malty, roasty ashy, some chocolate. Full bodied, bitters, roast, some roast ash acidity. Super flavourful, bit too heavy roasty for me.
