12 oz bottle poured into Carpe BrewEm snifter.

Dark brown to black body with a creamy 2 finger cream colored head. Lace gives a nice display as it clings to the glass in loops.

Aroma is almost like an adjunct lager; some corny sweetness, slight brown malt, faint cocoa powder.

Well, I'd be lying if I said it didn't taste like oranges and chocolate. Earthy flavors, with hints of cocoa/cacao, slight grassy hop bitterness, and finally orange peel and slight orange juice. It comes together in the end but it really has trouble on the way there, pulling this way and that.

Feel is more on the light stout platform, leaning more towards a porter, but still acceptable. Crisp and heavy carbonation, nice roasty finish, no warming alcohol.

Overall, should be sweeter but I can still dig it. It's not fabulous, but they did get all the flavors in there.
