Keg at CASK Pub and Kitchen, Pimlico. Nearly black with a tiny brown head. Smell is like an alcoholic Terry’s Chocolate Orange. Bittersweet chocolate taste with a short bitter finish. Chocolate dominates the aftertaste. An incredible experience.

22 oz. bottle from Total Wine, Greenville, SC. Pours black with a luxurious cinnamon brown head. Aroma of chocolate roasted malts with hints of orange peel. Taste of cocoa, espresso, and vanilla mostly. It does not appear at first but orange suddenly makes its way through and is a welcome addition to cut through the heaviness of the rich roasted malts. Great beer!

mcberko (5931) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 9, 2014
On tap at Craft Beer Co Covent Gardens, pours jet black with a small brown head. Aroma is complex, with light oranges, cocoa and roasted malt - a touch of booze as well. Flavour is robust, with a sweet cocoa, oranges and roasted malt. Very thick body with a lightly sweet finish. Excellent stuff.

Pours a dark black with a nice full head. Taste roasty, orange, chocolate. A very good beer, falls short on the aroma.

Pitch dark brown colour with a nice medium sized brown head. Excellent aroma with coffee beans, chocolate, caramel, lemon, a strong sweet orange note and vanilla. Full, brilliantly smooth body. Great balanced flavour with coffee, bitter chocolate, orange and mandarin. Exceptional.

Draft. Nose is very orange and tangerine with significant cocoa and bakers chocolate. Pour is pitch black with small white head. Taste is a chocolate bomb with light citrus. Moderate roast. Pretty nice but the fruit see s a bit subdued. Solid but not mind blowing.
