Brown pour, mild tan head 1/5". Orange and chocolate malt smells.

Taste was the roasting of a stout, the brown malt of a brown ale, and some chocolate and orange notes.

Key to drinking this beer is doing it around Dodger fans.

22 ounce bottle - Hop City Beer & Wine in Birmingham, Alabama.

Appearance: Pours a very dark brown, near black body with a foamy, lasting, light beige head.

Smell: Roasty malts with a leaning note of chocolate boosted by an aroma of fruity orange-flavored confections. Well, this wasn't what I had anticipated when I purchased this one.

Taste: Roasted maltiness yielding tastes of chocolate and coffee, as well as a munch of licorice stick. Medium sweetness. Orange candy flavor, develops into a muted sip of orange liqueur. Maybe a hint of pine. Hop bitterness remains fairly subdued. Drying, lightly spicy finish with more of the citrus taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Goes a bit beyond medium carbonation.

Overall: I know they have those orange Tootsie pops with the Tootsie Roll stuffed inside, but, this was like a standard Tootsie Pop with the orange-flavored Tootsie Roll crammed within. Work with me on this one, guys. Please.
