Mora2000 (5530) - McKinney, Texas, USA - JUL 29, 2010
Thanks to blutt59 for sharing this bottle. The beer pours a red-amber color with an off-white head. The aroma is toffee with a little bit of tartness. I am not sure if the tartness is supposed to be in the beer or not, since I drank a sour beer prior to this. The flavor is toffee, dark fruit and Belgian yeast. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
