Kauge (1530) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 3, 2016
Bottle from Uba ja Humal. BB 15.04.2017. Pours dark brown with a thick tan head. Good lace and retention. The aroma is dominated by roasted - no, burnt! - malts and orange peel, but it’s also leathery and pungent, balancing between freakishly good and something you wouldn’t want in your mouth, but veering towards the former as it settles. Tastes very sweet with a good deal of bitterness. Dark chocolate with orange bits. Silky smooth mouthfeel, not too heavy, and moderate thin carbonation, which cuts nicely through the slight sludginess. Roasty dry in the finish - begging to be sipped again and again - together with the nearly extreme, resiny, oily bitterness, which becomes really, really harsh later on. Nice try, but I can’t say I’m overly hooked.

pintbypint (3326) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 28, 2015
330ml brown bottle. Deep brown, large beige cap, the foam coasts the glass nicely. Nose has cocoa, orange peel and lime. Taste has chocolate/cocoa big orange zest with a pith bitterness. Chocolate and citrus peels lingering, body is medium and this is super drinkable.

martjoobolut (2817) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 26, 2015
Bottle, BB 15.04.17 (from Koht). Pours dark brown-black with light brown head. The head stays. Aroma is bitter, roast, licorice, coffee. Flavor is sweet and bitter, roast, coffee, licorice, some orange notes. Finish is roast-pine bitter with strong licorice notes. Alcohol is well covered. Overall: ok, but a bit over the top (unbalanced). Drinkability isn’t really good (wouldn’t want 2nd bottle).

allmyvinyl (9255) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 24, 2015
330ml bottle from Cornelius. Pours black with a thick tan head. Strong chocolate orange aromas. Dark chocolate and candied peel. Light roast. Taste is like Christmas, minus the spice. Chocolate orange all over. It’s not Terry’s, it’s mine.

czar (7484) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 17, 2015
pours unclear very dark brown with a large creamy cream cap, nice lacing. fragrant chocolate, bitter chocolate - like impossible 90% cacao; grapefruit bitterness, tons of licorice, cold brewed coffee - some acidity; dusty burnt raisins, rubber, ashes, clean yeast otherwise. moderate carbonation, medium body - oily and stout-ish; assertive bitter citrus finish. kind of overdone malt bill as per roasting level mostly. but tasty and original.

SlovakSniper (4920) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 16, 2015
(Mindst holdbar til: 15/04/17) Bière noire et mousse très foncée et épaisse. Extrême torréfaction, grains lourdement rôtis, souffle d’orange et pointe terreuse assaillent mes narines. Au goût, la touche d’agrume ne suffit pas à calmer la colère des céréales rôties. En bouche, le corps est crémeux et pétillant. En finale, c’est amer de torréfaction à la puissance 10. Difficile à boire.

mathieuc (3179) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 10, 2015
Pours nice black with a medium beige head that leaves nice lacing. Nose is of intense roasted grains, licorice and light chocolate. Taste is not dry but not that sweet either and loaded with coffee flavors and some light citrus maybe. Can’t say the zest was upfront at all, way less than I expected and not enough to be a key item in this recipe. Some ash. Oh, now I get the orange-like acidity. Piny hops. Long lasting bitter finish. Body is full and it sticks a lot on the lips. Moderate carbonation. A lot of warming alcohol and it does taste stronger than it is in reality. Not bad but not something I would come back to.
