4.05/5  rDev -6.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Sampled at the Cambridge Beer Festival 2008

Appearance: opaque black, with a slight orange/leather hue, good brownish head but no lace

Smell: dark roast aromas (coffee, chocolate) and citrusy hops

Taste: more orange than chocolate, actually. subtle. obviously the suggestion of orange and chocolate is from the hops and malts, respectively, rather than additions of adjuncts, which is admirable

Mouthfeel: quite creamy, low carbonation

Drinkability: nice and unique

To note:

1) This beer is NOT retired. (summer 2011)

2) Its name is not "Orange Chocolate Stout," but in fact "Chocolate Orange Stout."

That being said, it is *amazing.* Dark, smooth, rich, slightly bitter on the finish. Neither the chocolate nor the orange overwhelm, but add a delicious nuance to a good strong stout. Imagine an orange marmalade truffle dropped into a cask of strong English stout. Good for nighttime sipping by the fire.
