12oz bottle poured into a tulip.
A: Black pour with a towering, rocky white head. Retention is good. A network of spidery lacing clings stubbornly to the glass.
S: Funky and sour. Big whiff of black licorice. Clove, black pepper, and vague yeasty spice. Subtle hints of soot. Mandarin orange, tropical ester.
T: Lots of soot and charcoal all over the palate at the start. Big hit of black licorice follows shortly and stays throughout. Rose petal. Maybe ginger? Light funk and slightly sour/tart. Burnt crust. Clove and pepper. Pineapple and mandarin orange esters peek out toward the back end. Rustic yeasty funk again. Finishes with soot and burnt crust.
M: Medium bodied. Creamy. Moderate carbonation.
O: There's a lot of black licorice in this one, and that tends to be very polarizing (have we learned nothing from Stone Belgo Anise IRS?). And it's just a really odd mashup of flavors otherwise. This was a ballsy move, but it looks like the market has spoken. This has been a serious shelf dud.
