A potion of the Orcs

A brew that served the Orcs in much the same way that miruvor was used by the Elves and their allies: it granted renewed energy and strength to those who drank it. Nothing is known of the origins or contents of the orc-liquor, but drinking it was said to cause a burning sensation, after which a feeling of heat spread through the body.
