In a pint glass this beer was black in color with a small light brown head.
Mostly a chocolate aroma, some roasted malt. Citrus also.
More taste than the aroma suggested. A lot of chocolate, a hint of coffee. The citrus aroma translated into orange and tangerine. Sweet.
Smooth and fruity. A great dessert beer.

Black in color with a head that's thick and creamy. Thick collar, decent lacing. Aroma is coffee, roasty malt and bitter chocolate. Creamy mouthfeel, low carbonation despite that good head. Taste is also roasted malt up front with coffee and dark chocolate behind that.

A - black with a thin brown head that has little retention
S - faint roasted malts, light citrusy undertones
T - roasted malts, blood oranges, faint citrus, a hint of chocolate
M - medium bodied, crisp, decent carbonation
I was hoping for something a bit unique here, but ultimately this tastes more like a light porter. There are some faint citrusy notes thrown about with a light stout-y flavor profile. This is ultimately forgettable. I won't be having this again.

Served from bottle into a COAST Willi. Poured a massively dark brown with a one finger brown head that subsided to a minimal amount slowly. Maintained decent lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, roasted malt, milk chocolate, dark chocolate, dark fruit, and subtle orange peel. The flavor was of sweet malt, roasted malt, dark chocolate, orange, citrus, and orange rine. It had a medium feel on the palate with medium-high carbonation. Overall this was a decent brew. I was really hoping to see more of the orange on the nose of this one, however, the roastiness really overpowered it for me. On the flavor though the orange stole the show. You start out with a decent stout and then are just overcome with orange. Almost too much. Worth trying if you have the chance to do so, but not one of my favorite offerings from Evil Twin.

Appearance: jet black, no real head
Smell: stout. Coffee. Something else, maybe citrus? Not sure.
Taste: coffee, tartness. Not really getting any orange.
Mouthfeel: thick. Not much carbonation apparent.
Aftertaste: tart sourness. This comes over as more of a sour than a stout.
As it warms: more of the same.
This is an odd beer. Brewed with orange peel, it tastes a lot more sour than orange-y. With the right dessert pairing, this could be dynamite. On its own it is quite peculiar!

Poured into a Maudite snifter. Pours a very dark brown, appearing black on the pour and in the glass. Nice two finger medium brown head with good retention and slippery lacing. Great aroma of toasted malt, lots of chocolate and light orange, nice. Flavor is toasted malt with mild orange citrus, ending abruptly and somewhat dry, finishing with light toasted malt and a bit of a hops kick. Starts off medium bodied with a hint of creminess, but the finish is thinner and lighter. Somewhat confusing to rate, because the color and initial mouthfeel appear to be a bigger Imperial stout, and perhaps my expectations were too high for this 6% stout. I like the combination of malt and light orange, but wish there was a bit richer malt/chocolate flavor for the orange to work with. I enjoyed this well made and interesting stout. I'd drink this again local to the brewer, but the for the import price point would probabaly gravitate towards an Imperial stout.

A: The beer is jet black in color and poured with a half finger high tan head that gradually died down and left wispy lacing on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: There are aromas of dark malts in the nose along with some hints of cocoa. As the beer warms up, some orange peel becomes detectable.
T: The taste is similar to the smell and also has some flavors of coffee. Hints of orange peel become noticeable towards the finish.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a bit light and airy on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I thought that this beer was rather enjoyable since it still tastes like a stout because there are only subtle hints of orange towards the finish.

On tap poured into pint glass.
Deep black, thick brown head. Smells of toasted malt ever so slight citrus.
This was brewed with orange peel and you can smell it, but its not in your face. Its a smooth creamy stout, malty, coffee with a very small hint of orange. Its a good stout, but lacking real big personallity.
It intrigued me, but I would never get again...its just boring.

A: Pours an opaque jet black in color with some very faint highlights of dark brown at the edges of the glass when held up to the light. The beer has a finger tall mocha head that reduces to a small patch of thin film and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate amounts of lacing are observed.
S: Moderate to strong aromas of dark roasted malts (almost burnt) and roasted coffee with just a slight hint of smokiness. There are lighter notes of bitter orange (like from the orange rind) that become apparent as the beer warms up.
T: Moderate flavors of dark roasted malts and roasted coffee upfront. After that, there are light notes of bitter orange in the finish. Moderately bitter but still enjoyable.
M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation.
O: I like the addition of the orange to the stout - makes me think of the dark chocolates that have candied orange rind in them... Easy to drink and happy that this one got located and tried.
