Bottle: black with a reddish hue and virtually no head. Roasted, hoppy aroma with notes of caramel, roasted malts and flowery hops. Flavor is sweet with a long and heavy bitter finish and notes of licorice. And a herbal touch. A little alchol burns through. Soft carbonation, full body.

Mora2000 (5527) - McKinney, Texas, USA - MAR 10, 2012
Thanks to blutt59 for sharing this beer and for 5000 for sending me another bottle of it. The beer pours a dark brown color with red highlights and a tan head. The aroma is full of roasted malt and chocolate with some nice cream notes mixed in as well. The flavor is similar. The beer is very chocolatey tasting and there is also a nice amount of roasted malt. There is also a little bit of mint in the flavor, which goes well with the other flavors. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

pinkzambia (1426) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 13, 2012
Tap: Brown with a mild head and sticky lacing. Spicy aroma with cloves and cinnamon. Good well balanced flavor and a pleasantly mild aftertaste. Even though the malts dominate, it still is well balanced.
