Pours black with a small tan head. nose is chocolate malt spice and a hint of orange. Mouth feel is lactose and velvet. Taste is milk chocolate, roasted malt, orange peel and some spiciness, with a perfect amount of hop bitterness. This has always been one of my favourite Williams brothers beers. Awesome stuff.

Bottiglia 500 ml. Nera con ricca schiuma beige, al naso malto tostato e caff. In bocca percepisco malto, caff, cioccolato fondente. Bassa carbonazione, corpo medio, allaccio al bicchiere.

Sjohnh (913) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 30, 2016
Nice and dark, though I didnt get any lasting head or lacing. Body is indeed smooth and creamy, with just enough carbonation to keep it interesting. Aroma begins with mild chocolate, then the orange comes through. Flavour is roasted malt, caramel, orange and very subtle spice. Very good.

Negra, opaca, espuma marrom de boa formao e persistncia. Aroma bastante achocolatado, cacau, baunilha. Paladar de leve amargor torrado, baixo dulor, leve acidez. Corpo e carbonatao mdios. Final de mdia persistncia trs mais do torrado, caf, deixando o chocolate mais para o aroma. Um pouco mais aguada que o esperado, mas razovel/boa.
