Pours dark brown with a tan head. Aroma is almost like a dreamsicle with a little chocolate and malt. Flavor is chocolate, orange and malt, kind of like and orange tootsie pop. DIfferent beer, but not bad.

Bomber pours a dark brown/black with a large tan head. Aroma of orange soda, chocolate malt, and a slight hop presence. Taste is kinda like a bland tootsie roll with some artificial orange extract with some bitterness on the finish from the hops.

From a 650ml bottle on 13/1/2013 (shared by Butz with thanks). Pours a very dark brown with a small head. Has quite an unusual basement aroma with some fruity (orange) notes. Flavour wise, this is the beer equivalent of a jaffa - you get lots of sweet candied orange and chocolate malt. The texture is quite creamy. A slightly odd but pretty good beer.

Overall, a nice brew. Aroma was thick with candied orange peel, some chocolate, prunes, and a touch of sweetness. Pour was very black with a light khaki head. Flavors follow the aroma: Chocolate, lightly sweet, tons of citrus (orange and tangerine). Nice stuff.

What an interesting beer... It smelled like those orange-flavored chocolate balls but with a slight earthy background. Is this supposed to be a porter? The taste is dry and fruity with soft oranges, dry cocoa and a pretty mellow finish with roasty malts and chocolate. A tad confusing on the palate but pretty good too.

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Beer with a slight orange or citrus zest. Tastes a little flat or stale, and lacking in flavor. Smells good like a fruity beer should. May be good in small quantities to pair with certain a food, but it is not a drinking beer for me.
