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 from Cullen’s Pub. The orange flavor was kind of a mess in this... a lot of rind and acid without a pleasing sweetness. Didn’t like this one.

Holmen1 (4733) - Stavanger, NORWAY - AUG 24, 2016
Fra fat på Cardinal (sesongåpning Mi2) aug-16: brunsvart med fint skum som varer. Aroma minner om appelsinsjokolade med en spiseskje kaffe. Sursyrlig smak med appelsin, ikke helt modne bringebær og snev av røstet malt. Den endte opp som kveldens eneste hvor meningene rundt bordet var nokså delte eller mellomfornøyde.

Scopey (12227) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 16, 2016
Bottle care of Kenny. It pours darkest brown - black with a medium beige head. The aroma is rich roasted malt, charred wood, dark chocolate, orange peel, cocoa powder, earth and dirt. The taste is smooth, toasty, earthy roast, charred wood, cocoa, earthy, orange peel and earth with a dry, woody finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. Not a huge amount going on, but easy drinking.

On tap at Cardinal. Pours black with a small creamy off-white head. Aroma of red ripe berries, weak liquorice. Taste is light sweet dark red fruits, cherries, easy drinkable but nothing extra, lack the roasty burnt notes that i like in an BIPA.

Palme (4065) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 7, 2016
On tap @ Mikkeller & Friends. This is a deep and dark brown, not too far off being black one with a nice hefty lacing beige head. Mild nose. I get a little bit of dry roastiness, hints of chocolate. Not much more. It has a mild oily texture and a above average carbonation level. Soft cocoa dry bitterness in the taste, some darkness and a mils wood sourness in the back. Quite nice and non complicated. 16.10.2015
