COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Share This: OC is a rich, imperial stout infused with orange-chocolate flavors. It’s a profile we’re quite fond of, given the abundance of orange trees in our own backyard. Food Forward takes it one step further - reaching over 100,000 people a month throughout eight counties in Southern California (including Orange County) with recovered fresh fruits and vegetables that would normally go to waste from backyard fruit trees, public orchards, farmers markets and the downtown Los Angeles Wholesale Produce Market. To achieve the orange-chocolate flavor profile in this beer, we use orange zest, vanilla and TCHO cacao nibs. For every bottle we produce, Food Forward receives one dollar.

Black pour with a dense khaki head. Nice lacing. Aroma is sweet milk chocolate, vanilla and a hint of orange. Taste follows the nose with the orange being a bit more prominent. Sweet and decadent. Full slick body.

Taste pretty much echoes this with more chocolate oranges, vanilla, roasted malt, cocoa and light booze. Body is medium with a strong, bubbly carbonation. Mild stickiness and light warmth as well. Ends with more vanilla, chocolate oranges, cocoa, roasted malt, coffee and booze.

750 ml Bottle spilt 2 ways. Thanks going to Adamchandler on the bottle. Pitch black appearance with thin white head. Aroma is mild vanilla bean, mild orange peel, chocolate. The flavor has a strong orange peel bitterness that is needed to balance. Vanilla bean, and chocolate is mellow and almost chalky. Good body (medium Plus) mouthfeel is creamy with a strong orange peel finish.
