750ml corked bottle. A deep black with a large lasting broun head. Aroma of dark roasted malt, caramel, cacao and hints of coffee and dark fruit essence fill the senses. Taste is of dark roasted caramel malt with cacao and coffee flavors and some dark fruit and mild licorice undertones, a mild roasted bitterness. Palate is a smooth medium body with good carbonation. The finish is an unmistakable roasted dark malt, caramel, cacao and mild coffee, a bit of licorice with a mild roasted malt bitterness on the end for balance. Overall a good enjoyable brew to sit down and relax with, not to aggressive and nicely balance. I like.

From notes on 10/5/2013

Some people will really like this. I’m not one of them. To much anise and clove flavor and smell for me. If you like this kind of stuff though, you will really enjoy it.
