It is known for its singularity and unusual marketing - usually at its heaviest around Christmas - Terry's Chocolate Orange is a ball of chocolate mixed with orange oil, divided into 20 "segments", and wrapped in orange-coloured foil. As the segments, when packaged, are stuck together firmly, the traditional method of getting ready to eat them is to whack it severely on a hard surface to cause the segments to separate from each other.



Continuing Dubbel Dachs long tradition of unusual Christmas beers, Ryan's Chocolate Orange Stout aims to bring the appeal of the British candy orange to the palate of discriminating beer drinkers stateside. Available in 22 oz. bottles just before Christmas 2009 (if I like you).

In the last picture, is that an actual "section" glued to the bottle? If so, nice touch.

Yes - I got two actual chocolate oranges airmailed across the pond... Broke them and rewrapped them in 4" orange foil squares from Chocoley.com. Then, I hot glued the ribbons together, then hot glued the candy to the ribbon. The foil up top is the same as I wrapped the candy in.

It could use more orange. I soaked the zest of each of the oranges in vodka, then added at bottling. In the future, I'd use maybe a zest and a half of each? Or maybe just go with all sweet orange. The orange needs tinkering with. Everything else is tried and true - based off BYO's Breakfast Stout recipe which I keep tinkering with. Have made it as is, plus a vanilla stout, and chocolate orange.

It does go well with the candy. They compliment each other, so I'm glad I included the candy.

If you need an outsider's opinion, I'm only an hour and a half from you.

1 day in the primary? 4 days in the secondary? Can this be right?

I think he means 1week/4weeks.
