Batch 145

It's black with some light tan foam sheet with some breaks. Smells of lots a cocoa, coffee, a little coffee, and as it warms the orange zest comes through a bit. Flavor is leather, robust bittersweet coffee and quite a bit of cola flavors. Don't really care for the flavor. really dry beer with lighter than usual body and moderate carb. I'm none too impressed with this particular beer; flavor is too much cola character, body too thin and the nose is a little lackluster.

Pour is black with a tight caramel colored head. Nose is heavy roast light up front, orange citrus liquor, faint notes of chocolate malt, more lingering almost burnt roasted malts. Taste is a bit messy, lots of booziness throughout, orange citrus liquor, roast isn't quite as over cooked as the nose, not acrid which I thought it would be, malts are a bit richer mid palate, but lots of sugar and sweetness through the back end mixing with the orange citrus. Full body, a bit slick, moderate carbonation, semi dry finish with some bitter chocolate through the finish.

Not much orange truffle. Hints of orange but tastes more like a belgian than a stout. A little blue moon like even

Bomber poured into a perfect pint glass. 12/4

Pours jet black, very still, no bubbles. Liquid tar. Thin ring of foam. Rich roasted nose, hints of orange. Mild. Taste is an astringent bitter, a little syrupy. Barkeywine like bitter. Boozy. Subtle citrus fruit blended in. The oranges for sure. Good. Heavy.

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.
