Not real special. Fairly delicious, goes well with food. Tastes like standard-fare imperial porter.

12oz bottle dated 10/2/14 poured into a pint glass
A: Orange, slightly hazy with a thin head
S: Vanilla, light malt, stone fruit
T: The stone fruit/vanilla match the nose. Also sour, though the sour doesn't complement the other flavors at all
M: Light-bodied and sour
O: This would work well featuring the vanilla and stone fruit or the stone fruit and sour. Unfortunately the sour doesn't complement the more prominent fruit+vanilla well though the beer as a whole does pair well with the Holst suite

Unique, and kudos on the attempt.

Roasted orange apricot with vanilla, hints of cocoa.. Souring mildly

Not my thang. the vanilla orange smells like a bad mix of potpourri that someone thought may have smelled good for a minute: then not so much

Flavor is interesting, but not evocative. taste profile of Belgian Orange Dark Chocolate. If you like orange chocolate, u r going to like this IMHO

A bit of a mess, but bounus points for originality. Starting to sour a little which matches the apricot well. Glad I had this one.

Clear gold, small white frothy head, smells of apricot, vanilla, cardamom.
