Pours a three finger light tan head that fades slowly leaving some lace. Black color, no highlights. Good carbonation and medium-heavy bodied. Licorice nose and flavor is licorice, some malt, smooth. Good - not a wussy beer. The high ABV is hidden. $10.49 for a 1L flip-top bottle from Julio's Liquors Westborough, Ma.

Well... couldn't help but to pop the top on this behemoth of a bottle of pure pleasure! WARNING: If you don't like black licorice, STAY AWAY! As the label clearly states... its a Licorice stout! To start with, I am at complete room temp as I was advised. One might also start this brew off in the sink when popping the top... I got a little overflow as the carbonation proceeded to equalize the pressure. What came out can only be described as "black gold!" First up; the ultra sweet flavors of an uber roasted malt rocked my taste buds as hints of molasses and brown sugar rounded out my sheer pleasure up to this point. Next, following closely to the malted flavors an aromas is the wonderful smoothness of a well blended coffee! Mind you... a dark roast, but so incredibly butted to the malt that I almost missed it. However, once my taste buds grabbed a hold of the subtle current... every sip after seemed to pull it out even more! Thirdly, and living up to its name... ANISE! LOTS AND LOTS OF ANISE! Lastly, is a slight hoppy bitterness that tones the sweetness of the malt and sugars to PERFECTION! What rocks the most is that the longer it sits in your glass... the smoother it becomes! My next WARNING is that it IS a high grav brew @ 10% ABV, so be careful... IT HAS A KICK! Don't let that scare ya off though as Howe Sound Brewery has done a wonderful job in masking the alcohol in the wonderfully rich and vibrant flavors and aromas that the "Megadestroyer Double American Imperial Licorice Stout" provides

A: Pours a nearly opaque dark black with a fair amount of tan head. A solid layer retains, leaving good lacing.

S: Sweet strong and nutty, with heavy notes of anise.

T: Again, sweet and strong, and the anise comes in at the middle through the finish. Nicely put together overall.

M: Full body, medium carbonation.

Overall, a solid stout in a great bottle. Save some for later, because it will hit you hard!
