2.35/5 rDev -38%
Had this on tap in Arlington, VA. Pours a tan color with a small amount of foam. Smell of malts, chocolate and orange. Taste is....well terrible. I had about 3-4 sips but could not manage to get this down. Not sure if there was something wrong with the keg, but it was pretty brutal. It tasted extremely boozy and the blood orange is barely noticeable. I tasted less alcohol in BCBS than this. When I saw the 6.40% I was like wtf how is that possible.

650ml bottle into a tulip. From notes.
A: Pours a very dark brown color with a good two-finger mocha shaded head. The texture is great, the retention is solid, and there's some nice lacing left on the glass.
S: There's some chocolate along with a hint of coffee. Buried beneath that is some cream, oats, and some distant blood orange. There isn't a whole lot of Belgian yeast
T: While it starts pleasantly with some roasted and coffee notes, with a palpable midtaste of blood oranges, it's finish kills it - there's way too much metallic, vegetal action going on here. Which is a shame, since the blood orange character is actually very well blended within the base porter.
M: Hits all of the criteria I like in the style: it's dry to the point of parchment, light enough, and fairly well carbonated. If it weren't so metallic tasting, this would go down very easily.
O: Damn near $20 for this? OUCH. It would have been good without the metallic bitterness, but still not $20 good. By far the worst beer I've had from Allagash.

not a big fan of porters in general, but a huge allagash fan so gave it a shot. smell and flavor were dominated by smoke and peat, small traces of chocolate in the flavor as it warmed but no real or discernible taste of the blood orange - though it was a little oaty, or creamy in the mouthfeel. rather disappointed by this one.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.
Appearance - Not quite black. Transparent at the edges. Big off white head. Thick collar.
Smell - Smells like it's hoppy, but I guess that's the blood orange. Citrusy. Grapefruit. Roasty.
Taste - Orangey citrus. Slightly roasty, but more of a caramel flavor. Slightly bitter.
Mouthfeel - Rather thin. Seems overcarbonated. Maybe it isn't.
Overall - Very blah. No body. Not a good blend of orange and chocolate.
