Bottle -> Wine Glass

A: Crystal clear orange/amber color, nice 1/2" beige/blonde head which dissipates quickly, minimal/spotty lacing.
S: Toast, toasted malts, chocolate, caramel, crème brulee.
T: Malty, chocolaty/mocha, slightly hopped, floral.
M: Light to medium body, light CO2, nice slightly bitter hop finish.
O: I've had this beer many times before and felt it was time to do an official review - as I am new to this and this is now #8 for me. This is a good go-to for me. Great drinkability for any season or occasion and is a pretty solid beer. In the past I have paired it with a sidekick of orange cognac and the two play off each other quite well - it is a great chocolate/orange combo.
