This dark malty ale is brewed with loads of English Chocolate malt, a touch of dark crystal and a hefty amount of Amarillo hops - creating a complex and delicious ale with hints of chocolatecovered mandarin oranges. Shoeless Joe and Judge Landis would agree on this one

nuplastikk (6453) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 5, 2014
Tap at Haymarket. Opaque black with a steady beige head. Big American Porter. Oily sweet specialty malt thing going on. They kind of nail it with the self described mandarin orange covered in chocolate. A pretty respectable porter, some odd, chalky edges.

daknole (11402) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - NOV 17, 2013
Hella good porter from GABF. Dark brown pour, light tan head. Good roasty backbone, really good chocolatey notes, some coffee and a fruity note...not sure I got the mandarin...maybe more of a tropical note. Good stuff. Really nice.

GABF 2013. Pours a black appearance with a thin brown head. Really piney, spicy hoppy, dark chocolate, grapefruity aroma. A touch burnt chocolate malty flavor that is fairly roasty with a hint of smoke and pine.
