Bottle. Nice and creamy stout. Good taste. Not spectacular. Very solid though. I’d rather drink this than Guinness any day. m.mahu (193) - Iasi, ROMANIA - DEC 28, 2016

Very dark brown with no head. Smells like bitter chocolate, orange, and coffee. Strong coffee roasted coffee notes, with a sweet cane sugar finish. Medium to light bodied. uckelman (813) - Durham, ENGLAND - DEC 10, 2016
Pours black. Lacing of dark tan head. Lots of cocoa aroma. Smells almost like a chocolate orange. There’s a lot of malt there. Medium body. Mineral finish. EdButterfield (41) - Dronfield, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - DEC 2, 2016
Bottle poured into glass. Aroma dark roast malt, standard for a stout. Pours a nice thick dark body with a small off-white head that lasts about as long as you’d expect from a bottled stout. Taste smooth, rich roasted malt with solid chocolate notes and surprisingly fruity characteristics - zesty orange peel? Leads into a slightly spicy finish. A solid stout.

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 caffè. In bocca percepisco malto, caffè, cioccolato fondente. Bassa carbonazione, corpo medio, allaccio al bicchiere. Sjohnh (1012) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 30, 2016
Nice and dark, though I didn’t 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.
