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.

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.
