COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

Nice mild sourness to this beer. Slightly thin on the body though, with the underlying beer not being complex enough. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

tightslice (787) - Redwood City, California, USA - MAY 12, 2016
Bottle from Safeway in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is orange, orange peel and chocolate. Taste is slight dark chocolate, fruity and a dry burnt finish. Great aroma but doesn’t really deliver on the IPA portion.

nearbeer (4673) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 15, 2016
650 ml. Pours mahogany with some ruby tints and a thin film of cream. Aroma is Terry’s chocolate-orange ball with darker chocolate and touches of espresso and sourish lactose. Tastes of lightly tart berry, dark chocolate. Turns to a blend of orange zest and malted milk ball at the end. Long finish dries it up well with some light pine, ash and dark roasted bean. The roast and orange peel provide a light astringency and a balance that brings to mind the orange and black of the uniform. Light-medium body has a medium carbonation that flares up a bit, but that seems appropriate in this celebratory tribute brew even if I’m a die-hard Cardinal fan.

Keg at the Bottle Shop - Bermondsey. Pours deep brown with a creamy tan head. The nose holds toasted bread, some spicy pine, hints of orange peel. Light-medium sweet flavor with mellow roast, further toasty bread, dusty pine, earth, dark berries, leaves. Light to medium bodied with average carbonation. Finishes with further spicy pine, very slight citrus rind, fine roast, some impressions of cocoa. Just so so overall.

CryptLiquor (8) - oakland, California, USA - OCT 18, 2015 does not count
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.
