look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: jet black, no real head

Smell: stout. Coffee. Something else, maybe citrus? Not sure.

Taste: coffee, tartness. Not really getting any orange.

Mouthfeel: thick. Not much carbonation apparent.

Aftertaste: tart sourness. This comes over as more of a sour than a stout.

As it warms: more of the same.

This is an odd beer. Brewed with orange peel, it tastes a lot more sour than orange-y. With the right dessert pairing, this could be dynamite. On its own it is quite peculiar!

Served from bottle into a COAST Willi. Poured a massively dark brown with a one finger brown head that subsided to a minimal amount slowly. Maintained decent lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, roasted malt, milk chocolate, dark chocolate, dark fruit, and subtle orange peel. The flavor was of sweet malt, roasted malt, dark chocolate, orange, citrus, and orange rine. It had a medium feel on the palate with medium-high carbonation. Overall this was a decent brew. I was really hoping to see more of the orange on the nose of this one, however, the roastiness really overpowered it for me. On the flavor though the orange stole the show. You start out with a decent stout and then are just overcome with orange. Almost too much. Worth trying if you have the chance to do so, but not one of my favorite offerings from Evil Twin.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A - black with a thin brown head that has little retention

S - faint roasted malts, light citrusy undertones

T - roasted malts, blood oranges, faint citrus, a hint of chocolate

M - medium bodied, crisp, decent carbonation

I was hoping for something a bit unique here, but ultimately this tastes more like a light porter. There are some faint citrusy notes thrown about with a light stout-y flavor profile. This is ultimately forgettable. I won't be having this again.

On tap poured into pint glass.
Deep black, thick brown head. Smells of toasted malt ever so slight citrus.
This was brewed with orange peel and you can smell it, but its not in your face. Its a smooth creamy stout, malty, coffee with a very small hint of orange. Its a good stout, but lacking real big personallity.
It intrigued me, but I would never get again...its just boring.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Pours a very dark brown, almost black. Huge and dense brown head. Looks like a much heavier beer than 5.8%. Fades slowly, leaving no lacing oddly enough. Maybe a spot here and there.

S: Coffee and bitter chocolate primarily. There might be the slightest touch of orange peel but it could just be the power of suggestion.

T: There's the orange. Lots and lots of dry, bitter orange peel up front. Fades into a very bitter coffee and chocolate roasted malt character in the middle. As the roasted malt fades into the finish, the orange is back, tart this time, like orange juice. Lingering mild roasted malt bitterness between sips.

M: Nice medium body, slick. Not bad for 5.8% at all.

O: Not a bad brew, just simple. Strong and bitter roasted malt with a bit of orange, that's all. Very tasty and feels a lot bigger than it is. Just simple, which hurts the scores a bit.

In a pint glass this beer was black in color with a small light brown head.

Mostly a chocolate aroma, some roasted malt. Citrus also.

More taste than the aroma suggested. A lot of chocolate, a hint of coffee. The citrus aroma translated into orange and tangerine. Sweet.

Smooth and fruity. A great dessert beer.
