22oz bomber into a pint shaker.

A: Pours a fairly opaque and dense looking black with tan head that retains well and laces nicely.

S: Fairly big licorice presence...chocolate, hints of soy and pitted cherry...sweet notes of black patent malt and dark caramel....roast and char and burnt coffee.

T: Cherry, licorice, molasses, soy, hints of smoke and chocolate...star anise...big malt body, some char, hints of coffee...dark caramel...lots of roast.

MF: Fairly viscous and sticky, fuller bodied with just a slight twinge of alcohol.

O: This one took me by surprise, I like it a lot. Not a one-hit-wonder, lots of different aspects to this stout.

Black as night with a good tannish-brown head and good lacing.

Aroma is roasty and a little burnt with nice coffee and chocolate notes.

Flavor follows through with the nose, maybe with a touche of anise (but it’s subtle). The chocolate and coffee are a bit more pronounced, leaving a slightly cappuccino effect for the imbiber.

Body is full, thick, rich, and leaves a wonderful slightly roasted, slightly burnt aftertaste that I really enjoy in a stout.

Definitely recommended. I’ll for sure buy this one again.

Re-review, December 2013: This is still one of my favorite export stouts, or any stout really. It's kind of like the best of both worlds between an imperial stout and a regular stout (pick your variety, dry/Irish, oatmeal, or American). I may have to try cloning it. I love the bold dark roast flavors, the slight touch of burnt (a good flavor for me in the right quantities), and the touch of espresso coffee and dark semi-sweet baker's chocolate. I'm not sure I detect anise this time around, but I'll leave the original review in place for posterity. Second time around I still rate this one very high. In fact this isn't my second time having it, just my second time posting a review. One of pike's most tasty regulars.
