Mora2000 (5930) - McKinney, Texas, USA - OCT 12, 2010
Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. The beer pours a reddish-amber color with a white head. The aroma is a mix of dark fruit with some sweet toffee notes. The flavor is a mix of toffee, earthy hops, a touch of caramel and chocolate malts and a little bit of hop bitterness. The alcohol is very well hidden. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

undercurrent25 (1582) - Barnton, Cheshire, ENGLAND - OCT 10, 2010
Has a strong malty and chocolatey aroma, smooth yet bitter aftertaste, can’t really taste how strong it is, not the kind of thin g I’d drink again though

tommann (3002) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 16, 2010
330ml bottle. Pours really dark brown with a medium head. Aroma is caramel malt, plums and some alcohol. Taste is malt and dried fruit. Was expecting a bit more to be honest. However, it is really full bodied. Hides its alcohol, although there is some burn on the finish. Low carbonation.
