Opaque black color with a small light tan head that maintains a slick of foam and leaves many small spots of lacing on the glass.
Aroma of chocolate and roasted malt with orange and a touch of alcohol. Very aromatic and complex.
Chocolate and orange are the primary flavors, and great complimentary flavors at that. Roasty with a tart acidity.
Velvety and creamy body with a bit of tart juiciness to balance the smoothness. A great mouthfeel for sipping and contemplating on its own, even independent of the flavors.
Decadent and intense. This is a great beer for sipping and enjoying slowly over the course of an evening. An awesome experience. I first had this on tap at the harvest festival last fall and it impressed me as one of the greatest beers of 2011. Now with a few more months in the bottle, it still has the power.
