minutemat (2503) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUL 30, 2015
330ml bottle from Saveur-Biere.fr. Pours black with tan head. Aroma is zesty alongside some thick roasted malts. Taste is disappointingly lacking in zestiness. On a basic level it’s a great meaty porter, but for what it’s intended to be it’s a bit disappointing. Rated according to how it actually tastes.

lusikka (7104) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 17, 2015
330 ml bottle. Pours a pitch black colour with a beige head. Aroma of rich juicy citrusy fruitiness, roastiness and leather. Flavour of strong roasted malts, big juicy citrusy bitterness, orange pith, mild caramel sweetness, grass and some herbal notes. Medium bodied. Rather soft carbonation. Heavy stuff. I would’ve guessed this is a black IPA.

olio (7517) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 14, 2015
33 cl bottle. BBE 15.04.2017.
Pours jet black color with a nice big beige head. Very roasty aroma, lots of dark malts, licorice, mild hops and some chocolate too, the orange zest is there too. Orange on the flavor, dry roasted malts, maybe some licorice on the background, some bitter coffee notes too. Quite nice balance with the hoppy fruitiness and roasted malt. Rich, heavy and tasty.

erickok (4302) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - JUN 27, 2015
Opened this in the right sun expecting an ipa... And got this. Regardless this is a great brew. Even in the sun the orange really lifts this beer to a different level. Quite complex and a bit sticky, very full for the abv. Only the ending is a bit too brown sugar like. Delicious! (33cl bottle from Saveur Bière)

Sehr dunkelbraune fast schwarze Farbe, sehr schöne bräunliche Schaumkrone. Geruch intensiv nach Kaffee, bitter röstmalzig, geringe Mengen Orangen. Geschmack sehr röstmalzig, bitter, viel Kaffee, geringe Fruchtigkeit, wenig Orangen, klasse!

procraste (176) - FRANCE - MAY 22, 2015
Le nez qui empeste l’orange donne super envie. La première gorgée est diabolique ! Les arômes torréfiés tournicotent avec les zestes d’orange avec élégance et longueur en bouche. Là je me dis que j’adore ce truc et du coup, j’ai un peu peur d’en prendre une deuxième ( de gorgée je veux dire ... ! ... ) Bien frais et complexe, la deuxième gorgée confirme et donne d’autres pistes ... Très astringente en fin de bouche, limite désagréable. Une tuerie comme disent les jeunes ! Plus sur le chocolat en se réchauffant dans le verre
