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!

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.

CelticBrew (844) - The Crystal Coast, North Carolina, USA - OCT 18, 2014
Pours from bomber a super dark brownish red, forming a thin head of foam. Aroma of peat and earth, orange rinds, roasted malts and faint vanilla pods. Flavour was of burnt black currents, some chocolatey malt at the core. Perhaps just a little orange rind bitterness, plus dry roast around. Cloves and five spice come in at the end. Eh, decent enough, however I would rather have their Hop Craic instead.

"i don’t know if this belongs in the fruit beer catergory, or the american black ale catergory as it is both (calls itself an ABA). the orange zest is not subtle in the aroma, and makes for on odd but intuiging smell when mixed with some porter-like roasted malts and chocolate. pretty low hop presence (or is it just overshadowed?) in both the aroma and flavor. thin-medium bodied. unique and pretty tasty...maybe leaning towards a desert beer."

Wittales (644) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUL 27, 2014
Appearance was reddish black with diminishing off white creamy 1/2 finger head, spotty lacing. Aromas are orange marmalade, roasty malts, chocolate and estery yeasts. Taste are like the nose, oranges, toffee, chocolate and soft spicy hops. Palate was soft smooth CO2 with medium body, oily average length balanced finish. A wonderful combination of malts and fruit.

Dark brown color. Chocolate and orange nose. Slightly sweet orange mouth with some chocolate. Good.

ChainGangGuy (4395) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAY 25, 2014
22 ounce bottle - Hop City Beer & Wine in Birmingham, Alabama.

Appearance: Pours a very dark brown, near black body with a foamy, lasting, light beige head.

Smell: Roasty malts with a leaning note of chocolate boosted by an aroma of fruity orange-flavored confections. Well, this wasn’t what I had anticipated when I purchased this one.

Taste: Roasted maltiness yielding tastes of chocolate and coffee, as well as a munch of licorice stick. Medium sweetness. Orange candy flavor, develops into a muted sip of orange liqueur. Maybe a hint of pine. Hop bitterness remains fairly subdued. Drying, lightly spicy finish with more of the citrus taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Goes a bit beyond medium carbonation.

Overall: I know they have those orange Tootsie pops with the Tootsie Roll stuffed inside, but, this was like a standard Tootsie Pop with the orange-flavored Tootsie Roll crammed within. Work with me on this one, guys. Please.

Bygers (827) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 3, 2014
Bottle 0,75l. Pours a dark orange brown colour with a thin off white head. Aroma of loads of oranges and chocolate. Same for taste with a dominant orange flavour. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
