The orange zest did not dominate but was over powering. The chocolate was there as well with a little bit of roasted malt. But the coffee and vanilla flavors present in the base beer were not to be found.

This one was unique to say the least. I haven't tasted so.ething like it before. I struggled the entire time to decide if I liked it or not. The orange flavor came through pretty decently and went pretty well with the sweetness this beer has but it tasted a bit generic of a flavor. It was good beer and (to me) not a flop like passionfruit was but it is a very hate it or love it flavor to me. Glad I got to try it but I wouldn't seek it out again.
