3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Now that all the haters have rated...
Bomber poured a clear dark reddish brown with a lingering ring of tan foam. Aromas of roastiness, candied orange, vanilla and light carmel. Palate was light to medium bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of roastiness, orange zest and vanilla with a smooth dry lingering roasty orange finish.
Black pour from can at sheffields. Tan head. A fruity stout. Weird. Aroma of tobacco and licorice. Vanilla and orange and chocolate taste. Not bad DiarmaidBHK (4891) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 22, 2013
Draft at freshcraft. Pours black with a thin khaki head. There’s not a lot of orange here. There’s lactose but its faint as well. I can’t wait to try their newest stout flavored with eye of newt and high mileage motor oil. Strykzone (7354) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - AUG 18, 2013
On tap at Global Brew Edwardsville. A black pour with a small creamy head. The aroma was roasted malts, cocoa, and orange. It tastes like an orange chocolate creamsickle. The cocoa leads and later turns into fudge chocolate. There is plenty of sweetness here. Orange is always in the background but is always there. Some very soft bitterness. Am I the only one who likes this? SudsMcDuff (8428) - .....Manchester United.........., Texas, USA - MAY 30, 2013
My theory that any animal that can catch a frisbee is not food. That’s how I divide the animal kingdom: Throw him a frisbee. If it bounces off his head, he’s lunch. And I know it’s not scientific, but it works for most of your better-tasting animals. Like if you throw a frisbee at a turkey, boom, right over his head. "Sorry, I don’t play sports. I’m a turkey." "Well what are you doing here?" "Well, you know, I don’t know. I guess I just have a lot of white meat and drumsticks..." HINT! "... If you wanted to catch me, I’m not very good at flying away..." HINT HINT! "... I know only one word: ’Gobble’." BIG HINT! Ignatious (15) - Colorado, USA - MAY 27, 2013
Very dark brown pour with a tan head, nose is orange cream, with a cream and orange like palate. A unique take on a creamsicle brew.

Bottle shared by badnewsbeers. Deep brown body with reddish highlights, thin tan discontinuous head. Weird nose, acrid with booze and chemicals, like cigar smoke embedded in fabric. Tastes like some toys I had in the 1980s with burnt plastic and paint, also roast and orange cream. Bizarre and mostly unpleasant. jtclockwork (16581) - , New Jersey, USA - JAN 24, 2013
Bottle thanks to Perrin515. Pours black with tan head. Nose is orange cream, toasted chocolate malt and milk sugar. Very nice. Taste is same, but the orange is sugary and artificial and doesn’t meld seamlessly with the milk sugar. Has a bit of an aspirin feel to the texture. Overall, a much better beer than the ratings suggest, but not great. Body on the lighter side of medium. TheJestersBeer (2430) - SWEDEN - OCT 31, 2012
Pours dark brown, with a beige head.
Spicy aroma, orange peel, chocolate, malt, caramel.
Off-dry, medium body and bitterness, balanced CO2.
Malty taste, oranges, chocolate, caramel, ashes, coffee beans.
Quite odd, but not all unpleasant. (2012-10-04) Errl (2442) - Plano, Texas, USA - OCT 14, 2012

A dark brown, nearly black pour, it is a carbonarated milk stout with nice orange flavor on the finish. I enjoyed it. I am a fan of creamsicles, so that probably helps as well.
