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.

yngwie (17284) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 31, 2017
Bottle, 75cl. Close to black in the glass, with a dense beige head. Lots of cocoa and chocolate on the nose, with coffee notes, some orange and booze, and a touch of vanilla. It's full bodied, warming and smooth, with a very low carbonation level. Cocoa, chocolate, chocolate butter cream, coffee and some orange in the flavor, really lasting. Delicious. 171231

Good beer, but not what I expected from it. Just so little hint of orange zest at the end... choco, coffee, smooth imperial stout.

Nische (2661) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 27, 2017
Tap at Stone Berlin. Pours a very dark brown with a dark beige head. Cocoa, orange, sweetish vanilla and coffee. Pretty smooth. Resembles swedish candy Romerska Bågar a bit.
