tricksta_p (3893) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - JAN 1, 2017
Bottle from Biernavigatie. Big zesty orange aroma indeed, fruity citrus, dark malt, cocoa, roast, chocolate, coffee, some hops in the finish. Flavour is moderate to medium sweet and medium hoppy bitter. Body is above medium, very agreeable. I love orange in my Porter/Stout and this one did not disappoint.

romanstep (370) - Warszawa, POLAND - DEC 25, 2016
W nosie średnio intensywnie, kawa, czekolada, cytrusy, aromat trochę przypomina Black IPA. Barwa czarna, nieprzejrzyste, piękna, beżowa, gęsta i wysoka piana. W smaku podobnie, dużo nut palonych, gorzka czekolada, kawa, w tle lekka kontra cytrusowa. W ustach bardzo gładkie, goryczka średnia, palona. Niezłe. Butelka do 15.04.2017

On tap at Mikkeller San Fransisco. The orange flavour is a bit much for me, otherwise its a very well made stout.

Turtles (2283) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 3, 2016
Bottled @ Half Way Inn. Black with a rich dense beige head, good lacing. Citrus zesty aroma, roasted barley, coffee and chocolate, much like an bipa. Full-bodied, soft carbonated, dry and crisp mouthfeel. Roasted barley taste, ash, chocolate and citrus zest. Dry finish.

dnicolaescu (2262) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - NOV 20, 2016
BOTTLE 33 CL. Pitch black, dark mocha head. Rich black malts nose, lots of licorice sweets and candied orange peel. The taste is really roasty, without being acrid. Balanced by just eight sticky molasses and licorice, big bitterness - ranging from pine to zest - and some charred wood in the after taste. Smooth mouthfeel. A rich tasty porter.

nickd717 (4365) - Sofia, BULGARIA - NOV 15, 2016
33cl bottle from 100 Beers in Sofia. Aroma is roast, dark chocolate, molasses. Flavor is mildly sweet, mildly bitter, fairly roasty and chocolatey. Medium-bodied, fairly smooth. Where is the zest? Very, very subtle if at all. Docking a point or two for that.

Noticeable sweet orange quality in this beer makes it a nice and almost weirdly light take on the style. I really enjoy this sort of thing.
