Firkin at Night of the Living Ales. Served in the supplied taster glass.
A - Looks more like a stout - very dark brown, with some thin wispy foam on top.
S - An interesting mix of butterscotch, oak, roasted malts, caramel, chocolate, and anise.
T - Taste is again quite nice, with heft doses of caramel, vanilla, butterscotch, oak, roasted malt, and a moderate anise twang in the finish.
M - Smooth, chewy, full body, with a bit of oak dryness, and very low carbonation.
D - This beer deserved a medal, and again shows why Flossmoor's management is out of touch with reality - these are both Brian Shimkos creations. If this is his last hurrah, it was a good one and was competitive with BCS Coffee for best non-sour of the night.

On cask at Night of the Living Ales 2012. Poured into taster.
A - Pours black, light tan colored head, some bubbles on top.
S - Chocolate, anise, light burnt sugars, oak, touch of dark fruits. The Hi-Fi takes a back seat to the Anise Stout, but it works well.
T - The anise is a little more apparent on the nose, but the Hi-Fi really helps tone it down a bit. I'm not a huge fan of anise to start, but I think this blend is well-done. Pretty simliar to the nose, just a little more anise.
M - Full, rich and smooth, creamy sweet finish.
O - A really solid beer from Flossy that I had several pours of during the session. For not really loving anise, this beer impressed me. Would love to have again in the future.
