Bottle de Vine, Birri, Ribelli, BB 23/04/2018., brewed 23/10/2017.
Brune foncée, col crémeux café au lait.
Arôme malté chocolaté, caramel, pointe de grillé, effet lactose reste bien présent, dommage. Retrouve de fines touches houblonnées
Palais est malté chocolaté, pointe de grillé finement amer avec de suite une sublimation houblonnée ajoutant un effet amer - fleuri et fruité. Note peu, voie pas, l'effet zeste d'orange au profit du lactose qui diminue un peu le fini de la bière. mrol (366) - - JAN 24, 2018
Pours black colour. Aroma and flavour of chocolate and coffee, with hints of liquorice and oranges. Very good. hohops (1271) - Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 21, 2018
Appearance- very dark, with a small foamy beige head. Aroma- lots of coffee and chocolate, roast malt, dark chocolate. Taste- not much orange is detectable, but plenty of roasty coffee and rich dark chocolate, caramel malt. Bitter toasty finish. JorgeLee (2455) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 7, 2018
Bottle, Oddbins West Hampstead. Nice dark black colour, modest beige foam. Smells of roasty malts and lactose. Lovely rich creamy sweet stout, good interplay of burnt malts, chocolate, hint of sweetness, and the milky lactose texture. Touch of dry and bitter from cocoa. Not overly hoppy. Lovely stout, really nice. Terry must have run off with the orange though. panda_brewmaster (333) - Bournemouth, Dorset, ENGLAND - DEC 28, 2017
UPDATED: DEC 28, 2017 Aromas of roasted malts, dark chocolate and subtle coffee. Taste is dark chocolate with lots of cocoa. Bitter and cocoa acidic aftertaste. No sign of orange zest.

Pours dark black with a thin off white head and thick lacing.
Aroma is chocolate, roast malts, milk, mint, brown bread and hint of orange. Taste os sweet with a medium bitter finish and medium body.
Good quality stout, shame the orange is too faint to live up to the full billing. pims (84) - - DEC 23, 2017
Smell of cider, fruits. Taste is chocolate mostly, a bit bitter and fruity in the palate (due to the orange perhaps ?). kraddel (9999) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - DEC 8, 2017
Pours dark brown, smell is crunchy, taste is sharp, bitter, roasty, tad of coffee. Didn't get the orange or lactose... planky84 (3902) - Lee, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 28, 2017
