4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: NOV 2, 2014 Bottle... This beer rocks!... Tar-black pour with a small, creamy, mushroom-colored head. Decent retention. The aromatics include milk chocolate and orange peel. Not as much orange as I was hoping for, but delightful nonetheless. Full-bodied and velvety with subdued carbonation. The flavor is of medium-bitter dark chocolate, charcoal and a hint of citrus fruit. Finishes burnt, acrid and super carbonic. A world class brew from the good folks at Pipeworks!

Bottle shared with wyzzywyz22. Thanks mate. Bought from Beer Moth, Manchester. Poured a drak brown almost black with a thin to medium tan head. Aroma is subtle chocolate orange truffle, light roasting, leather. Flavour is well balanced chocolate and orange, the orange comes through very well, roasted malts, medium to high sweetness. Full bodied. No way is this 10.5%. Very well done. Different. Very good. Really enjoyed it, a unique experience. Why I love beer.

Bottle shared by Joes @ weekly tasting. Very dark brown to black color, slightly a dark red glare coming through, small to average sized tan head. Aroma is malts, roasted malts, a weird plant-like vegetable hint. Taste malts, some chocolate, oranges, nuts, slightly fruits, some bitter. Pretty weird beer, kind of donít know whether I like it or hate it.

Original beer. The roasted malt and cacao of the imperial stout work well with the orange, although itís sometimes hard to detect the orange. Good experiment.

Bottle: Thanks Preismj: Served in a Chouffe glass:
Medium sized creamy brown foamy head on top of a black colored beer.
Aroma does remind me of the Pimmís cookies, soft cookies with orange stuff inside covered in chocolate. Nice orange tones with coffee and dark chocolate.
Flavour is something unique, itís chocolate, with orange and chalky cacoa. Nice bitters. Firm roast. Light herbal coffee... Strange but very yummi..
Aftertaste is stronger bitters and stronger roast with a chocolate herbal chalky marzipan edge. Yep..
Low carbo, creamy mouthfeel, fuller bodied and a creamy texture.
