Bottle from Coppers, Newcastle. A rich black ale with a light brown head that rapidly disappears. It has a strong liquorice and blackcurrant flavour, sherry-like overtones and a mildly smoky finish.

UPDATED: OCT 28, 2009 Matured for 6 months in cask (these Moor beers mature at a steady rate but still retain an incredible freshness about them), this is a beaut. Very dark, close to black with a head the colour of the crema of a well made espresso. Roast and smoky aroma with some cherry and prune fruit alongside some earthy hops and if you really look for it a citrus note (found after 3 pints, but found again when sober!). Good mouthfeel and carbonation with a creamy but full body. Obvious flavours of coffee and chocolate are in abundance with vine fruit, liqourice, smoke and generous bitterness. Lasting smokey, fruit, liqourice, bitter finish. A rich well matured fruitcake of a beer. planky84 (3379) - Lee, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 22, 2009
Bottle from Beermerchants. Pours black with a nice tan head which dissipates within a minute of pouring. Lovely aromas of dark chocolate, coffee, roasted malts, caramel. Flavours of dark chocolate, brown sugar, licorice, roasted malts. Finishes nice and malty with a slight bitterness. Leaves a pleasant warming feeling in the throat.Cracking effort!

660ml bottle. Jet black appearance with a small tan head. Aroma of chocolate, liquorice, dark fruits, caramel. Taste is very rich, same flavours as the aroma, light roasted malts, vanilla, light coffee, quite sweet but not cloying, very slight alcohol burn. Full bodied, creamy velvety smooth texture. A rich, complex, delicious beer. beerboy278 (4) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - AUG 17, 2017 does not count
full nose of liquorice, warm nutty and sweet tones, extraordinarily heavy, best not for hedonistic/debauched weekends, however, if you wish to fall asleep on the sofa with your cat, this is the one for you.
