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.

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: 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.

(3.75) A: Pours a cola-like colour with a mocha head that quickly recedes to a thin ring that hugs the glass. Quite fizzy with lacing that clings.

(3.75) S: Roasted malt (dry cocoa & dark coffee bean), brown sugar, orange, licorice, and light banana. Creamy aroma with a sour citrus kick that lingers.

(4.0) T: Dry cocoa, juicy orange, tart lemon, light caramel, and some faint smoke in the finish. This is incredibly smooth with a unique flavour profile (tart chocolate orange) that is robust and very good.

(4.0) M: Medium bodied with a higher (fizzy) carbonation. Creamy with a velvet-like texture.

(4.0) D: This is very good and I would easily pick this up again. Great taste profile with a smooth and silky mouthfeel.

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.

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.
