650ml bottle from Saveur Biere. Bottled on 11/26/13.

Perfect black outfit with dark brown head. Aroma and taste reminds chocolate cookies with orange marmalade. Orange is strongly along and maybe it’s too dominant. Mixed feelings with this beer but turns to the better side.

Steve_0 (3031) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 14, 2015
Bottle in Glenwood Springs with friends, courtesy of Aaron. Thanks man! Pour is deep brown with a frothy brown head and great lacing. Bakers chocolate, vanilla, some coffee, lightly toasty, marshmallow, graham crackers, and earthy aroma. Taste is chocolate, coffee grounds, earthy hops, orange peels, some vanilla, graham crackers, and raisins. Medium body with soft carbonation. Nice flavors, but could use a thicker body, still tasty. 3

Bottle with Steve_0 in Glenwood Springs, thanks to markwise. Pours a black appearance with a thin brown head. Aroma is full of milk chocolate, light coffee, a touch of fruit, and some vanilla. Medium body. Kind of spicy flavor. Tons of chocolate. Dessert like flavor. Fun. A little sweet.

Lukaduke (2486) - Portland, Maine, USA - FEB 7, 2015
Pours a deep viscous black color with two fingers of light khaki foam. Rich roast on the nose with dark bakers cocoa, big chewy mouthfeel, some light citrus and vanilla add nice complexity but don’t really shine quite as much as the big dark body of this beast. Tasty treat !

GlasgowTAD (285) - Glasgow/Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - JAN 30, 2015
Pours a deep brown, almost black. Has a HUGE milk chocolate shade of brown head that eventually disappears into nothing. Aroma is cocoa, slight roast and some toasted hazelnuts. Taste is voluptuously complex, begins with citrus orange which is followed by 70% dark chocolate tastes then followed by a rich and earthy black coffee. It is full bodied with a rich mouthfeel. Astonishingly good.

hopscotch (9896) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 17, 2015
Bottle... Pours murky and dark brown with a tiny, creamy, beige head that’s gone in a flash. The aroma is a collage of fudge, burnt malts and dark chocolate. Full-bodied with a velvety mouthfeel and tingly carbonation. Burnt, bittersweet flavor – dark chocolate and acute honeybell and mandarin orange sweetness - with an acrid, carbonic finish. Bottle courtesy of darkguardian!

teorn88 (3489) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 21, 2014
Backlog rating. Keg at CBC Clapham, Craft 100, London. It pours a deep dark brown color with a small tan head. Aroma is roasty and sweet, with notes of dark chocolate, toasted bread and orange marmalade, ashy earth, espresso, orange rind and wood. Taste is bold, roasty and sweet with definite note of orange blossom. Also notes of espresso, dark chocolate, lactose, wood, port wine, Christmas spices and buttered bread. Finishes roasty and quite dry. Medium to full bodied with good carbonation. Overall, really good RIS
