Cloudwater My Continuous Improvement #4 - Chocolate Orange 4.5  
Cloudwater Brew Co Manchester, Greater Manchester
19-11-20 // can. Pours thick oily roch dark brown to black. Some initial dark brown bubbles quickly fading leaving no head. Oily lacings on the glass. Nose provides an complex and roch aroma of dark bitter chocolate, cocoa dust with a subtle sweetness below and the orange zest reminiscing a Jaffa Cake. Strong sweetness first, followed by a light roasted malt aroma and a bitter chocolate finish. Aromas are chocolate dominant, rich luxuriant dark chocolate mousse. A great zesty, fresh citrus aroma cuts through for balance alongside a roastiness. Mouthfeel is thick and rich oily. Heavy but so well balanced to male it easy again. This is of course a sweet dominant beer but the orange and bitter chocolate notes make it so well balanced that I really enjoy this one. Indulging in this one while doing some late night work.
