oobawa (1659) - Tennessee, USA - OCT 5, 2017
Solid porter, bitter and roasty, heavy with unsweetened chocolate and espresso notes, the orange zest providing a too-strong java-like acidity to the profile. Starts almost stout-like, full of black coffee and anise, then quickly gains a fruity undertone that mixes oranges with subtle cherry and raisin undertones. Finishes dry and citric; not a huge fan of the effects of the zest, but the base porter's pretty damn delicious. Pours a beautiful black with a massive beige head and tons of lace. Chocolate and roasted malts dominate the nose. Super-smooth feel makes the pint disappear way too quickly. Nice beer, but would've been world-class without the adjunct.

Almost black beer with brown head. Aroma is alcohol, roasted malt. Taste is mix of roasted bread, orange and hops, also cocoa. Aftertaste is a bit sour orange and bitterness of roasted malt. Pretty heavily roasted beer, strong feelings in the mouth, alcohol too is all there. The beer full of tastes. Very interesting brew. Very good porter.

Tjära, syrlig espresso, choklad och soya finns också. Alla dofter går igen i smaken som först känns lite bränd men det avtar efterhand.

nearbeer (5561) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 18, 2017
33 cl. bottle bb 04/07/2019. Deep ebony pour with a spongy disc of foam. Aroma is orange, molasses and a touch of chocolate. Flavors of molasses, white pepper, dark chocolate, dried grass and orange. Medium-plus bodied with medium carbonation and a nice balance. Good but the zest dampens the smoky char in the excellent base brew too much for my tastes.

tightslice (1415) - Redwood City, California, USA - JUN 9, 2017
Bottle from K&L in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is dark chocolate with candied orange peels. Taste is orange oil, orange bitters, cocoa. Appearance and mouthfeel here are incredible, very much black oil with an orange halo glow...but the flavors are not as deep as I’d hoped for.

Jaceks21 (337) - Zgorzelec, POLAND - MAY 23, 2017
W aromacie czekoladowo i kawowo z lekkim dodatkiem pomarańczy. Troszkę kakao również się pojawia. Piana trwałą, bladobeżowa. Zdecydowanie mocniej kawowe niż czekoladowe, odrobina pomarańczy. Lekkie, pije się szybko, odrobina paloności na podniebieniu.

BelgianBeerGal (4140) - Panama City, Florida, USA - APR 4, 2017
Bottle from Kwiker Liquor enjoyed from Hampton Inn paper cup listening to a thunderstorm chase idiots off the beach. Pours out dark brown with a gravity defying brown head. Big aroma of dry cocoa and a hint of smoky, roasted malt. The flavor has espresso and a light bitterness like from orange pith or peel. Thats good porter.

3.6
Mishnok (379) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - APR 2, 2017
330nml bottle. Pours almost black with little head. Orange peel aroma. Decent body and taste of chocolate orange, mild roasted coffee and a hoppy aftertaste, but not bitter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
