To honor our World Champions at the Cove, we have created a smooth, American black ale brewed with orange zest. A hearty brew for the bleacher bums, gardeners of turf, and patient fans who have endured 54 years of pine-grabbing torture. An adult beverage to salute the bat, the Stick, the rally thong., the crab, the seal, the chickens, the Thrill, the bowties in the office, the golden voices in the booth, and all of the San Francisco legends that helped them get there. We at Moylan’s never stopped believing and we plan to bust this rookie out on opening day for the Ortange and black faithful. WARNING: Do not fear this beer for it will freakishly offer two Cy’s of relief without putting any hair on your face. ARE YOU READY? WELL THEN GRAB A BEER, MEAT!

Orange is barely noticeable in this below average black. As great a combination as these two flavors have the potential to be, Moylan’s needs to return to the drawing board.

Bomber bottle at home from the Grove, Huddersfield. This is seriously and oddity. It’s amazing to me that a brewery from a country where Jaffa cakes aren’t sold managed to make a beer that tastes so much like Jaffa cakes. It has a relatively thin but creamy, smooth, soft mouthfeel, with decent carbonation. Sort of opaque black in appearance with fluffy white/tan head. A bit like a BIPA crossed with an orange milk stout. Aroma of hops and orange juice. Interesting brew.

ben4321 (5087) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 28, 2014
Location: 22 oz bottle from State Line, 12/28/14

Aroma: The nose is orange/citrus, roast, chocolate malts, and a bit of candied sugar
Appearance: It pours a brown color with a red hue, a beige head, and some spotty lacing
Flavor: Tastes less sweet than expected from the nose, pretty clean too, with a fruity sweetness, some light tartness as well, subtle roast/chocolate, mild spice, and a clean, lightly bitter finish
Palate: The body is fairly light, a touch thin even, with a smooth, clean feel, and a short duration
Overall Impression: This is an interesting beer. The orange/citrus sweetness and tartness work nicely with the rest of the fairly subtle flavors that join into the mix in the middle-to-end palate. There’s a definite dark malt flavor in here, but for some reason it doesn’t necessarily seem like the color and the flavor match up. I was surprised how quickly it thinned out. Still, I’m glad I tried it. It is pretty interesting.

Bottle. Go Giants! Game 7 of the 2014 series is tomorrow night. A dark brown color with a foamy light brown head. A noticeable orange aroma and flavor on top of a malty grain base.
