4.75/5 rDev +12.3%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Enjoyed in a snifter
A: Pours a hazy mahogany brown color with a ton of fizzy light tan colored head that lingers extensively, pours really beautifully, leaves a decent amount of spotty lacing
S: nice licorice note from the star of anise and something warmer and deeper that lingers at the end
T: wow immeditely hits with the star of anise which is incredibly intense, i once chewed on a small piece of this herb at brewery ommegang while drinking their abbey ale during a tasting, this beer really reminds me of that experience, just such incredible taste and flavors, intensely strong but in the best way, spot on, actually backs off the palate rather rapidly and leaves the mouth pretty clean of taste, really awesome, absolutely no taste of the 10.5%
M: medium carbonation tingle then moves into a bit of an odd feeling on the palate, almost spiced up i guess is what id call it, leaves the mouth just slightly dry
O: incredible, this beer has such incredible taste and flavor profile, this is absolutely going to be purchased again and again, wow
Serving type: bottle
