3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 ounce bottle poured into a pint glass. Pours a thick black with a khaki colored head of foam. The aroma is tangy citrus beneath a rich, peanut buttery body with notes of chocolate and coffee coming through. Taste is sweet and citruay. The orange comes through in an interesting way as it is just a little acidic, but not enough to be sour at all. Medium carbonation and big bodied.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample from batch #217-218 at Kurtkeller 004: Pipeworks-tastic 01 on 01/18/2014. The beer pours black with a medium light brown head that recedes gradually. Partial rings of lacing. Aroma of chocolate, oranges and malt. Full-bodied with flavors of chocolate malt, citrus and mildly bitter coffee. The finish leaves a chocolate-covered orange flavor, which is actually better than it sounds. Pretty good overall.
