Had it twice, first time was a bottle share from the bro in law and it was so good that I had him buy one just for my wife and I. There are few beers I crave and this is one of them.
The smell is seducing. The texture is light and silky. The flavor is a slight citrus to accompany a solid porter.

Black with a beige head.

Roasty and toasty with a real subtle fruit scent--possibly the best smelling porter I've had.

Matches the nose for roasted malt, not shy at all and has a smoke sort of edge to it--I'd love to know the grain bill. The orange's apparent, and it's exactly what I wanted when I grabbed this bottle. Not chocolatey to me, it's tangy and just weird enough. Low ABV means I can see this one through without being tanked. What sucks is I grabbed was the last bottle.

A big, hearty robust porter that hits the spot.

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.

Quick notes

Appearance - Black/deep brown. Frothy, sticky khaki head that leaves great lacing.

Aroma - Chocolate covered oranges. Slight grapefruit tartness.

Taste - similar to nose with a hint of mineral, and slight nuttiness.

Mouthfeel - Would like a bit more carbonation, but the head would never stop. It's silky and creamy. Very well done.

Overall - Surprised by how much I enjoyed this. I've have a few Mikkeller beers that underwhelmed recently. Will look for this again!

On tap at When Pigs Fly. Served in a snifter, the beer was a dark brown color with a small tan head. There was a good deal of lace.

Nice aroma of chocolate, coffee, and citrus.

The taste improved on the aroma. Milk chocolate, coffee, and molasses up front, leading to orange zest, then a bit of cocoa late. Nice.

A sweet beer, very enjoyable.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into an unbranded stemmed ale glass

Pours a very dark mocha brown capped with a two finger fluffy light beige head. Big bakers chocolate, citrus peel, roasted grain and malt on the nose. Opens with dark chocolate joined by roasted barley and roasted malt and yuzu juice. Light espresso notes appear transisitoning into the finish dominated by bittering hops combined with mandarin orange and tart yuzu peel. Light medium bodied, a touch of creaminess, but fairly slick. I really enjoyed this brew, very unique. The dark chocolate notes combine perfectly with the added orange and yuzu. Yuzu is a Japanese citrus fruit commonly used in cooking. This brew paired perfectly with Japanese hiyashi rice.

A) A very dark brown and it was completely opaque. The head that was formed had a dark cola like color to it and dissipated rather quickly.

S) The nose was very nutty and warm with toasted malts. Under that there was a slight hint or citrus and a sweet toffee quality as well.

T) This beer was bold. It was extremely hearty yet not overwhelming. There is a heavy toasted note with undertones of chocolate. There is also a slight sweetness that comes in at the end along with a citrus note to finish.

MF) Light and bubbly. The beer did not leave a heavy feeling yet it coats your mouth nicely. There is a a velvety quality to it.

750 ml bottle. Served in a nonic pint glass, the beer pours dark brown/black with about an inch and a half tan had that sticked around for a long time. There's also a good amount of lacing. It's a great smelling brew, it smells like roasted malt, milk and bittersweet chocolate, oranges/orange peel, and some coffee. It tastes like roasted malt, nuts, milk and bittersweet chocolate, burnt/charred malt, slightly tart citrus/oranges, citrus peel and a bit of a mineral flavor. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it's a bit creamy and slick. It's also smooth and easy to drink. I like this beer a lot, I should have bought another bottle. I'll have to grab one if I ever come across this again. It's pricey at $17.99 a bottle, but I liked this one a lot.

4.18/5  rDev +7.2%

Attractive but not drop-dead gorgeous, with a pretty damn black body and a long-lasting crown of latte-brown foam. Yuzu is immediately detectable in the aroma, with its distinctive lime-mandarin-evergreen aroma poking through a typic porter profile, with the standard malted milk balls, bitter caramel, and oatmeal aromas. The slight soy sauce note typical of porters of this strength combined with the fresh yuzu acidity reminds me of ponzu, in a good way – I don't mean that you could actually dip tempura or gyoza in this. Then again...

The flavor is well balanced and perhaps too restrained; it's chocolatey with a touch of coffee and caramel like a good porter should be, and the yuzu's citric tang lends a nice but subtle contrast. Overall the whole thing is too dry and a little bit subdued – nothing really jumps out at me.

That said, it's perfectly pleasant to drink and I can imagine it would be incredibly versatile with food: Japanese izakaya fare would be an obvious match, but I can see it working beautifully with Chinese, Korean, Indian, Lebanese, and even American BBQ.
