Amazing red amber color. Beautiful. Great head also. Sweet caramel aroma. Sweet, chocolatey, toasted caramel taste with great complexity. Amazing flavor. Bit spicy. It pretty much covers every facet you want in a beer. This beer is just awesome. One of our favorites ever.
Serving type: on-tap

Notes from after the fact. I just plain didn't jive with this beer. The licorice ruined it for me. This beer came off as tasting like root vegetables with potato and turnip. The sweetness of the chocolate malt flavor and the twang of the licorice with vegetable notes just didn't go together. Licorice and anise spice lingered long after. There were other redeeming qualities like a great body and a nice porter-like woodiness that I appreciated, but I couldn't get past the bad parts. And I'm even a fan of licorice an anise, just not in my beer apparently.
