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.

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

Meseszép textúra rajzolódik meg az üvegből kifelé jövet, kávészerű test zubog olajos sűrűséggel, borhoz hasonló súllyal a pohárba. Az aromáját van szerencsém tapasztalati anyagra is támaszkodva úgy jellemezni, mint a legfinomabb narancsos belga étcsokoládé illatát. Porszerűen sima, kakaós jegyek kerekednek ki, egy telt, kávébabos jelleg által elmélyített szerkezetben. Nagyszerű felhők, igényesség, elegancia, prémium kategóriás élmények hirdetői. Mennyei krémesség ejt rabul ízlelése során, folyékony csokoládé és robusztus kávé zamatai ölelkeznek egymásba egy leheletnyi gyümölcsös fátyol jótékony pártfogásában; zavarba ejtő mélységeivel lehetetlen betelni. Idővel pikáns csípősség és vaníliás könnyedség társul komplex ízeihez, így alkotva egy csodásan kerek atmoszférát a komponensek sokasága. Lassú folyású, kimért modorú ital, megéri minden egyes cseppnek külön figyelmet szentelni.

Buena e intensa sensación alcohólica sobretodo al calentar con toques de naranjas amargas bastante intensos. Sabores de cacao y algo de café también intensos. Bastante buena, para repetir sin duda una vez mas.
