3.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
[2803-20100312] Cask. Super rich dark chocolate aroma with lots of orange. Hazy, dark brown black body with a medium-lasting foamy off-white head. Chocolate mocha flavour initially followed by bitter medical orang peel and lemon rind. Medium-full body. Not your typical chocolate orange beer, personally I would prefer a little less rind.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
2010-03-12. Black body, tiny tan head. 3+ Flavour is fairly bitter, cocoa/Ovaltine like character, mild fruity orange in the finish if you look for it. 6+ Mild aroma of alcohol, similar chocolate character as in the flavour - with hot chocolate power or Ovaltine like notes, light fruit character, grows as it warms and takes on more of an Orange character, but I am looking for it it since I was told it was there... Not sure if I would have identified it as such otherwise. Average plus palate is light for a stout, but decent for a cask. Okay, not to my own taste. Cask at the brewpub, Toronto
