Overall this seems like a pretty standard stout. I'm picking up only the slightest hint of orange. There is a decent amount of chocolate flavor, and a pretty heavy alcohol burn. There's nothing that really stands out as spectacular, but nothing bad, either.

Bomber poured into a perfect pint glass. 12/4

Pours jet black, very still, no bubbles. Liquid tar. Thin ring of foam. Rich roasted nose, hints of orange. Mild. Taste is an astringent bitter, a little syrupy. Barkeywine like bitter. Boozy. Subtle citrus fruit blended in. The oranges for sure. Good. Heavy.

22 oz bomber courtesy of robbiemoy13 pours a dark brown with a small cap of tan head. Spotty lace and retention is ok.

Nose is not really very appealing, chocolate and one of those Terry's Chocolate Oranges at holiday time.

Taste is better than the aroma as orange flesh meets spruce tips and roasty coffee. Some lighter cocoa as it warms and a sharp lime peel. Not bad, but I dont really get much chocolate truffle action...more of an earthy, musty orange mixed with old coffee.

22oz, Batch 217-218 (fall 2013)
DFH signature glass

A: Pours deep dark black. Thin spotty collar of medium tan head. Some lacing bits.

S: Big orange zest character. Really comes up first. Milk chocolate. Some malt ball notes.

T: Dark chocolate with that bitter orange zest is there. Chocolate malt ball flavors, as with the nose. I will be marking this higher than others, because I found it to be more pleasant than expecting.

M: Medium side of full. Not epically thick.
