4.45/5  rDev +14.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

750 ml bottle (1 pint 9.4 fl oz) with no apparent bottled on date present. Orange foil around the cap. Acquired this bottle from a local beer store for $15.99. It was the only time I've ever seen this beer available in my area, and it was the only bottle they had.

Poured into a clear balloon snifter glass.

A - Pours four giant fingers of creamy pillowy mocha colored fluff on top of a rich dark opaque black-brown body. Beautiful rings of lace.

S - Smells phenomenal. At first, chocolate and bitter coffee bean roast is apparent, and as it sits, mouthwatering tart citrus orange & yuzu aromas come out. This smells how I wish Pipeworks Orange Truffle Abduction had smelled.

T - Taste follows the nose perfectly: dark chocolate, bitter coffee bean roast, some mineral water, and some tartness from the yuzu & orange. The orange and yuzu add just enough sour citric to the mix without being distracting.

M - Feel is of some bitter roast and light citrus on the palate.

Overall, I thought it was fantastic. Perfectly blended exotic yuzu fruit and orange with the classic elements of a nice porter. Well done, Mikkeller. I can definitely say I would have this again if it was more readily available to me. Highly recommended.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

On tap at Newhall Refinery in Newhall, CA.

Pours an opaque black with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. A foamy lattice of lace coats the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, earth, citrus fruit, and slight hot dog juice aromas. Taste is much the same with cocoa, char, citrus fruit, and citrus zest flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roast bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with an odd aroma but solid flavors when the beer warms up.

Serving type: on-tap

My first Mikkeller!
A: Dark as night, with lovely lacing. Pours foamy but the head fades rather quickly.
S: Typical porter flavors (smoky, chocolate, tobacco, coffee), only very faint and gentle.
T: Again with your typical porter flavors (and again, fairly gentle on the flavoring), with a well-balanced tart and sweet element from the orange/yuzu. I liked how these flavors complimented each other well.
M: Smooth, silky. Didn't notice carbonation. Mouthfeel kinda reminded me of red wine, even,
O: An interesting and yet highly drinkable porter.
