On tap at the Brick Store Pub. Dark, murky brown with a medium, creamy, light tan head. The head sticks around for a long time, and the lacing is pristine. Heavy notes of chocolate, oak, light cinnamon, and some distinct notes of bourbon. Cloyingly sweet flavor, with some light spiciness, and a pleasant warming and sweet aftertaste. Heavy body, smooth and creamy. Overall, this is a stellar beer. Highly recommended!

Mahogany pour, nice brown head. Great aroma of figs, dark fruit and Belgian yeast. Flavor is intense dark fruits, chocolate, and Belgian yeast. Awesome.

Shared by martjoobolut, thanks! Brown beer, tan head. Nose is raisins, lots of sugar, malt, some yeast and caramel. Flavor is sugary sweetness, raisins, caramel, honey-ish notes. Smooth and soft mouthfeel. It’s really sweet. A dessert beer, if you’re into that sort of thing.

Smells very sweet, raisins or strawberries flavor. Tastes also sweet like raisins, but bitter like cacao.

Luktar roligt gott. Smaken är ler sol en porter än en Ale. Lite sötare dock. Riktigt god och prisvärd. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Moravius (603) - Berlin, GERMANY - NOV 18, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 19, 2014 Flasche (75 cl, MHD: 06/2013), 2 Jahre im Keller gelagert. - Tiefes Rotbraun, trüb; kurzlebiger Schaum. - In der Nase weinig-dunkelmalzige Schwere mit dunkler obergäriger Frucht und leicht holziger Herbe. - Antrunk herb dunkelmalzig mit weinigen dunklen Fruchtaromen (Feige, Himbeere). Noten von Bitterschokolade, Pflaumen in Madeira, aber nicht zu süß, leicht krautig-säuerlich. Mild rezent, vollmundig, samtig-weich im Mund. Im Abgang nicht zu wenig krautig-holzige Herbe, dazwischen ab und zu Bitterkakao. Langer herber Nachtrunk. - Der streng süßsäuerliche, moosig-herbe Geschmack, der mir bei der Verkostung einer frischen Flasche 2012 nicht so recht gefiel, ist nicht mehr so penetrant wie damals, lockert aber die dunkelmalzige Schwere auf und macht das Bier erst interessant. Auch hier hat die lange Lagerung sich gelohnt, das Ergebnis ist weitaus komplexer und tiefer als eine frische Flasche.
