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!

Lubiere (9428) - Ottawa, Ontario, - JUN 8, 2013
A dark orange reddish copper ale with a thin mocha head. In aroma, loads of oranges and chocolate, like that breakable orange ball, juice, interesting. In mouth, a sweet mix of orange juice, powdery chocolate, a bit thin and cloying.

cbfobes (2153) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 18, 2014
Poured from bottle, pours black with a thick off white head and lots of lacing in the glass, the aroma is pretty crazy, tons of citrus from the oranges and zest with the chocolate coming through as well, the flavor has a orange and fruit front end with a sweet finish, really different but enjoyable

Wow. Lots of orange and malt on the nose of this. Malty in flavor. The orange was a bit too much for me.

DiarmaidBHK (3161) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 3, 2013
Bottle from Bridgeview liquors. Pours black with a half inch of khaki foam massive orange on the nose. There’s some roasted malt notes on the tongue but the orange is bigger. Finishes clean. If they bring out the chocolate more this could be the liquid equivalent to one of those chocolate orange candies you see during the holidays.

krumbum (402) - truckee, California, USA - JUL 15, 2013
Deep black cherry color. The richness and the citrus fight for the light scent. It tastes of roasted flavors with a thin body. The citrus was very light on the way down but owned the burp that came up. Palate rinses rather nicely clean.

KaiTheDeadGuy (2) - - JUL 15, 2013 does not count
The aroma is caramel, chocolate and coffee. I find it very pleasant. The appearance is clear black with a minimal tan head. There is lacing and the head doesn’t entirely disappear, lending even more to it’s wonderful appearance. The taste is medium sweetness with a light bitterness and heavy on the sour. Dish soap is what came to mind while drinking it. It is flat with a slightly creamy, medium body and a bitter finish. Overall? I do not like this beer. It does smell good, though. So, if you’re looking for some aroma therapy, this is right up your alley.

vvesside (256) - California, USA - JUL 1, 2013
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.

Aroma is moderate malty, caramel, chocolate - thin chocolate. Flavour is moderate to heavy sweet, light acidic and moderate bitter with a average to long duration, salty, tart orange.
