Was a little skeptical about the licorice, but I really enjoyed this brew. Poured black with a small carmel head. Roasts on the nose, but not as strong as I like. Nice balance between creamy and carbonation, very nice. Chocolate and malt, although not as much malt as I was expecting, and I expected more licorice but I'm ok with the subtlety. Finish lingers of roasts and coffee. Very nicely balanced. I'd prefer a little more umph from it as far as ABV, I think that would add to the overall, but all in all very nice beer.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

a: very dark almost purply stout, with a caramel-brown head.

s: rich and with unexpected layers of... something. Really complex. Almost chocolatey.

t: I was hoping to be able to taste a little bit of licorice or something different. As it stands it just tastes like a really excellent stout. Little bit tart on the finish.

m: solid and chewy.

o: slightly disappointed in the lack of a really distinct flavour, but this is going up on the list of all-around favourite stouts.
