TheCametron (1863) - 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 (1062) - 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.

Maria (10176) - Thisted, DENMARK - FEB 18, 2014
It’s pitch black with a brown, creamy and lasting head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt, licorice and a little chocolate. The mouth feel is semi oily and nice. The flavor has a medium sweetness and notes of roasted malt, licorice, hints of chocolate, the oranges zest arrives fairly late as a very subtle note in the finish, possibly only because I look for it.

Bottled. Pours deep brown with an average, lacing tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, orange and orange peel. Sweet flavor that ends dry and slightly bitter. Medium bodied, oilt texture and soft carb. An excellent porter.

spacecube (946) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 21, 2014
330ml bottle, pours black with a small tan head. Aroma of milk chocolate orange, mild chilli spice, vanilla, with a light body and a balanced dry finish. Carbonation starts lively before leveling. A really nice porter with a zesty citrus twist.
