It pours from a 12oz bottle with very little head. The color is very dark brown, nearly black with the head having a slight orange tint to the otherwise lighter brown. The smell is pretty strong with chocolate with no real hints of orange. Mouthfeel is over-all smooth but with sharp carbonation coming late. Taste is dark and slightly bitter chocolate. There is hardly any orange taste, just a bit of an aftertaste. It would be easy to confuse this with just another chocolate porter. Over-all quite good.

Bottle shared by Bruce, thanks for the opportunity!
Solid dark brown with a stingy off white head. Aromas of milk chocolate and caramel with hints of earth. The flavor is mostly caramel and chocolate with a hint of citrus. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a creamy silky mouthfeel. Not a bad beer, but I would have liked a bit of orange as I found almost none.

Pours almost black with a thin tan head. Excellent retention, and very nice lace. Aroma is of dark chocolate, and cocoa. Body is on the light side with some carbonation. Taste is of bitter dark chocolate. There is no hint of Orange. This is supposed to be a Baltic Porter? Not very good. This brewery continues to disappoint.
