Cask at GBBF17. Can definitely detect chocolate and citrus in the aroma and the beer follows into a smooth palate. Definitely can taste coffee in the finish.

Cask at The Great British Beer Festival 2017, Kensington Olympia. I see no one has rated this since last year's festival! Very handsome beer; black with a dense beige head. A nice aroma of dark malts and fruit. Smooth, full body, with a solid, if not amazing flavour. Finish is nice. anders37 (26857) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUL 4, 2017

Cask at GBBF ’16, day juan, 09/08/16.
Black with a decent tan cap.
Nose is as it says on the tin, Terrys chocolate orange, light hoppy back draft.
Taste comprises dark malts, chocoalte biscuit, lighter orange notes, earthy, light roast.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close.
Decent enough stout but perhaps lacking depth for 6.7% ABV. The_Osprey (8520) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 28, 2016
August 2016 - Cask handpull at GBBF 2016, as ’Moonshine Chocolate Orange Stout’, 6.7%. Opaque black with a small brown head. Aroma is potent perfume, dirty cheap perfume on someone in a grimy nightclub. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste has the expected chocolate orange vibe but it’s more like a flowery potent orange perfume of some sort. Very floral, some soap. Potent, intense stuff. This one will slow down your session. Nice aspects but quite hard work. (3.2)

Intense bitter, dark chocolate, dry cacao, not getting much orange here. Hazy dark brown, small, frothy, beige head. Harsh bitter. Bitterness carries on relentlessly, bitter chocolate, medium duration and bodied. OK Stout, too bitter, feels slightly out of balance. Cask at GBBF16, Olympia. evergreen0199 (3452) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 15, 2016
Cask at GBBF 2016, Olympia, London. A dark brown/black coloured pour with a thin beige head on top. Roasty, malty, chocolate aroma. Tastes quite similar, roasty, malty, chocolate, slight orange. It is OK but I expected a lot more from a 6.7% stout. Martinus (4686) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - NOV 4, 2015
Black colour, beige head. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malts and cacao. Sweet malty flavour, light coffee, caramel, hint of orange. Light bitter finish, coffee and cacao.FatPhil (16692) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 9, 2015

Dark, but almost no head. Nice mellow roasty aroma, dark, hinting at chocolate. Nice roasty body, but a bit flat in the body. Finish is long and roasty too. Suspect this wasn’t at peak condition.
Cask at GBBF 2014, 12/08/14. Pours a dark reddy brown with a tan head. Light, dark malt aroma with a light chocolate. Light to medium body, light carbonation. Light lemon, some light chocolate, a touch of coffee. It’s thin, not great.
