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.
Serving type: bottle
