Aroma is of treacle and liquorice. Insanely complex flavours follow of dark fruits, nuts, wood, coffee, brandy, again liquorice, whiskey, and an alcohol kick on the end of the palate. Full mouthful. Definitely a sipper. Stunning ale.. Trolleo (1833) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - JAN 2, 2018
Chocolate, some iron rust you could find in Old ales. Pitch black color with big sized creamy brown head. Wonderful taste. Wood, chocolate, cocoa, hints of smoke/meat, some caramel and nuts. Thin to medium body, soft to flat carbonation, silky. Bit too thin. Nice cocoa finish. Great, great stuff. //tap at Craft Room ogivlado (8316) - Zagreb, CROATIA - DEC 30, 2017
On tap at Craft Room Zagreb. Rather black coloured, medium sized beige head, whiff of alcohol in the nose. Toasted malt, caramel, chocolate, dried fruits and alcohol with touch of berries. Some chocolate and alcohol in rather dry finish. Nice one. yoxik75 (458) - Wroclaw, POLAND - DEC 17, 2017

On tap at Craft Room. Pitch black body, scant head. Complex malty aroma, plum, caramel, even cooked apple, light chocolate, very light alcohol and some liiight fruity tartness. Very much complex, very much pleasant. Soft, sweetish festival of dark malty in the taste, plum, anise, apple, quite light for the ABV, quite drinkable for the ABV, going into a genuinely lovely milk chocolate note heading into the finish. Very, very light alcohol. Quite dry in the aftertaste. Wow, this is indeed a fantastic beer, the best Moor I've tried so far and worthy of the hype by all means!

Small sample from 660 ml bottle, from Vinmonopolet. Black colour. More of a stout than an old ale in my book, but decent enough to drink. Roasty and slightly spicy aroma and flavour. "Liquid Christmas pudding"? Not quite, which probably is an advantage for the drinkability. ippopotamo36 (2623) - Rome, ITALY - OCT 29, 2017
Handpump (cask) @Luppolo Station (Rome). Black color with a brownish little foam. Nose: leather, tons of it. Earthy a bit, macerated cherries, dusty room. Mouth is clean, refreshing, well-made. Warm feel of alcohol, sweet roast, resins. Fantastic! CraftBeerNick (2975) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 14, 2017
Bottle at home, 14th October 17. Pours pretty much black. Aroma is caramel, cocoa, slight spice. Taste is light liquorice, caramel, not as much spice as I expected. Palate is light, slightly watery. As it warms there is some wood, malt, slight yeast. Not bad. fombe89 (4232) - Asturias, SPAIN - OCT 14, 2017
