espenra (985) - Kurland, NORWAY - NOV 29, 2012
66cl bottle at Håndverkerstuene.. Best before 2014-03-31. It poured a black colour with no head. Aroma is berries, lots of berries. Vanilla and honey, black and red current. Faint notes of malts and coffee. Flavour is very mild. Mostly coffee, but notes of alcohol, cocoa and vanilla. The berries in the aroma is mostly missing, though some dried fruits like plum or raisins are noticable. Medium long aftertaste.

Pyrmir (5318) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - NOV 16, 2012
On tap. Nose a bit on the winy side, smells like old barrel. Heavy and musty aroma. Lots of basement notes in the taste, musty and winy.

hawthorne00 (3357) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - NOV 9, 2012
Bottle, 15C. Black with an inch of tan head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, roasted malt, prunes, vanilla. Velvety mouthfeel, but quite astringent - goes from very smooth to a little sharp at each sip. Taste has sweet mocha, dried fruits and vanilla. Earthy and tangy. Slight alcohol burn. Bitterness almost pops out at the end with astringent coffee and late-arriving dried orange peel. Deep and interesting, but doesn’t quite mesh as a whole. Might well come together on keeping, but very good now.

Beer5000 (5770) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 22, 2012
Shared bottle @ Håndverkerstuene, courtesy of espenra. A black body with a moderate sized beige head. Aroma of dark malt, mocha and coffee. Flavor is smooth, sweet, dark, roasted malt, coffee, chocolate and a hint of vanilla. Fine body and a pleasant aftertaste with dark, roasted malt, dry fruit and balanced bitterness. A fine and complex beer with lots of flavors. One of the best beer I have tasted so far from Moore.

WheatKing (1328) - Phnom Penh, CAMBODIA - SEP 27, 2012
An imperial porter, really. Chocolate fired up in a wooden stove and dipped in coffee, sprinkled with anise, then pulverized and fermented. OK that either sounds ridiculously good or terrible... for me it’s the former.

rjkreid (191) - SCOTLAND - SEP 14, 2012
Dark fruits soaked in booze which I suggests christmas cake and rum. Hints of blueberry in the nose. Tasty brew that is has the rich cake flavour coupled to high notes that give hints of more sweet berries. Sweet and warming. Nice stuff.
