Pour from 330 into tulip. Head flew up and over pretty big, but dissipated very quickly. Fig, raisin, other dried fruits in aroma. But the taste was much more complex. Spicy, earthy, and the candy sugar taste gave the sense of licorice. I think that was the off-putting aspect for me. I spent the rest of the glass trying to focus on isolating aspects of the complexity - there are notes of malt to savor, notes of yeast to savor, hops to savor. But the licorice profile kept dominating. Got in my head and I couldn't get it out.
