1.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle, shared with mmmIPA (and the kitchen sink). Medium brown pour, light tan head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is very candy-sweet, and evocative of Terry’s Chocolate Orange confection. The palate delivers the same fake candy sweetness that certainly captures a chocolate covered orange perfectly, but is syrupy and soda-ish. This will have its fans, but I’m not one of them. Drainpour.

3.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
ENG: 650ml bottle from Liquor Mart in Winnipeg. Poured into the tulip. Very dark amber to red to violet color, small-medium tan head. Aromas from bottle are strongly chocolate. From the glass it’s even stronger - like orange jello in chocolate. Smells wonderful. Tastes a bit like an orange chocolates but not as much as in aromas, a bit watery, and it’s overwhelmed by a bit lager’ish sour bitters. Taste disappears quickly. Low to medium carbonation and low body. Overall it’s a very drinkable and refreshing, yet strongly aromatic beer. Too bad the taste (compared to the aromas) is that poor.
PL: Butelka 650ml kupiona w Liquor Mart w Winnipeg. Przelana do kieliszka. Barwa bardzo ciemno-bursztynowa, wręcz czerwono-fioletowa. Piana jasna, średnia, szybko opadająca. Aromaty z butelki mocno czekoladowe. Z kieliszka nawet mocniejsze, niczym słodka pomarańczowa galaretka w czekoladzie. Piękne aromaty. W smaku również nieco jak czekoladki pomarańczowe, jednak nie tak intensywnie jak aromaty, nieco wodniste, ponadto smak jest nieco lagerowy, z typową dla niego kwaśnawą goryczką. Zanika bardzo szybko. Niskie do średniego nasycenie, niskie ciało. Podsumowując jesto to bardzo pijalne i orzeźwiające, jednak wyjątkowo aromatyczne piwo. Szkoda że smak jest tak słabiutki w porównaniu do aromatów.

Opaque brown. Quickly dissipating head. Orange quite present in the aroma along with malt, chocolate, caramel, and spice. Smooth creamy and light. Unique taste although much more akin to a brown rather than a dunkel. Mildly sweet orange and chocolate dominate. Malt and caramel are present as well. Extremely smooth finish. No hop. Certainly not my favourite, but I appreciate the originality.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Dark brown pour, clear with a reddish hue and a thick beige head. Aroma is incredible, milk chocolate and delicious sweet candy orange with some caramel and butterscotch. Initial flavour is a bit of orange with some roasty malt and chocolate, but not much sweetness. Pretty light bodied flavour and thinnish texture. Flavour vanishes very quickly without a trace.

So the aroma on this is amazing. Pure milk chocolate and orange. Like Christmas in a glass. Unfortunately the palate really brings this down. Very thin and watery. Flavors are nice.. Just like the aromas.. But the water palate affects the flavor. This had potential.

Sweet vanilla organge and chocolate aroma. Taste, though, packs less punh and is kind of odd tasting. Watery finished and kind of thin palate. Had potential to be like one of their chocolate oranges but didn’t quite succeed.

Exactly what you think it will be like. Heavy chocolate and orange. Great for the winter holiday season.

Crazy artificial caramel squares. Flavour is Terry's Chocolate Orange... So sweet and minor bitterness. Slight watery palate but overall cloying.

Poured from 650mL bottle. Clear copper colour with minimal white head. Very strong aroma of chocolate and orange (like Terry’s chocolate orange). Same flavour, but light and almost watery. Little body.

Sadly I didn’t really get to taste or smell the beer here, it was covered with a chocolate syrup in the same way coffees are given hazelnut syrups or what-have-you for teens still not used to the coffee flavours. Scares me to think that this style of "crafting" beer might become more popular. I agree with others that there was a strong orange characteristic.
