Bot @ room temp. Orange chocolate? heheheh, I’d like to taste that. Its just a big fat terribly on style cross between an impy IPA and a black IPA. Go figger. Perhaps the orange chocolate is in the sweet nose only? Mouth coating oily IPA.

Poured from the tap at the brewery into a pint glass. The appearance is a clear dark brown with orange highlights and a small white head. The aroma is oranges, chocolate and some yeasty bread. The taste is chocolate malt with some hops at the end.

Real nice impression from tap. Dark amber and a rich aroma of cocoa and some orange zest. Taste is rich and full of the choc and orange as well. Like from me.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dark brown medium bodied hoppy IPA. Citra hops take prominence, chocolate and orange flavors are subtle. Unique beer, thinking it may be better classified as a Black IPA.

Fat på Örebro Öl & Whisky Festival. Dagens första smakprov. Mörk rubinröd vätska med tunnt beiget skum som ligger kvar. Doft av choklad, granskott, apelsin, kola, honung och kakdeg. Lagom kropp. Smaken är lik doften. Många smaker som ska ta plats samtidigt, men lyckas hålla ihop det snyggt. Stabil och jämn. Trevlig!

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear brown with light carbonation, sizeable foamy head. Aroma of hops with faint orange. More like a brown ale than an IPaA. Bitter finish with orange peel. Not so great, but ok.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at the Irish Pol. Mostly clear very dark brown pour with a large off-white foamy head. Good amount of thin lace. Strong good cocoa notes in the nose and finish, though the actual taste of the chocolate during is more glossy and slightly artificial. The orange element is further back than expected - present but unpronounced. In fact the citrus flavors from the Citra hops are more in control. There is also a mildly deep malt background with notes of plums, prunes, blackberries and currants that provides richer fruit elements. Lots of dark caramel flavors as well. At 100 IBUs there is also a strong spicy hop bite. The whole experience is rather wild. Not fantastic but certainly not boring.
