Bottle from Beer Moth, Manchester, shared with Weasel Keneivel. Nigh on black pour with a smallish beige head. Choc laden nose with notes of orange, roasted malts ,coffee and hops. Flavour was similarly comprised with a tidy sweet/bitter balance. ABV very handily smothered. Warmed up very nicely and super moreish. I’m a sucker for Chocolate Orange so this was a total win for me.

venom666 (332) - Alicante, SPAIN - JUL 24, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 31, 2014 Pitch black color with short-lasting thin beige head. Aroma is rich in chocolate and has slightly hints of orange, also roasted malts are present. Taste is richer in orange, than interacts perfectly with the chocolate, giving a bitter/sweet sensation that makes it so interesting. Aftertaste is sweet and bitter as well. Very interesting Imperial Stout.

Advocate_Ames (427) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 15, 2014
Pours deep black with a defined khaki or espresso like foam head that laced my glass. The aroma is a blend of roasted bread malts, semi sweet sugary malts, milk chocolate, and earthy orange peels. As for taste it was full in body, there was a medium to high intensity of bitter booziness with a mild orange flavor that appears to linger in the finish. I also picked up on bitter chocolate, a noticeable sugary malt taste that attempts to balance this beverage. Overall a fine beverage. I wish there was more of an orange intensity and a softer lingering bitter taste.

teddybeer (2223) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 14, 2014
Black color with a light tan head that quickly diminishes. Aroma has notes of roasted malts with light orange hints. Flavor is slightly sweet with good maltiness, orange hints in the aftertaste and some coffee bean also present. Easy drinkable in spite the high ABV.

hopscotch (9120) - Indian River County, Florida, USA - MAY 23, 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!

Black thick color/body. Oily sticky texture. Strong orange flavors, a lot of warmness and mouthfulness in it. Milfay cake aftertaste. very very nice I.S beer.

weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2014
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.
