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.

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.

Bottle pour at Woodshop 8 held at The Hermosillo in Los Angeles, CA.

Batch # 145.

Pours an opaque black with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, and subtle orange aromas. Taste is much the same with cocoa and slight orange flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roasty bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is tasty but the orange presence is very subdued all around.

3.64/5  rDev -9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

22 oz bomber courtesy of robbiemoy13 pours a dark brown with a small cap of tan head. Spotty lace and retention is ok.

Nose is not really very appealing actually...orange, chocolate and roast...like one of those Terry's Chocolate Oranges at holiday time.

Taste is better than the aroma as orange flesh meets spruce tips and roasty coffee. Some lighter cocoa as it warms and a sharp lime peel. Not bad, but I dont really get much chocolate truffle action...more of an earthy, musty orange mixed with old coffee.
