Wow, did I not like this beer. So much licorice and bitterness.

Pours black. Standard SRM, 1/2 tan head. Aroma was licorice, roast and alcohol.

Taste, eee gad, this is brutal. Heavy licorice, heavy bitterness, heavy alcohol. Dark fruit and licorice notes. Fuck. So much licorice, totally not my thing. Licorice lovers only! It dominates everything else in the beer. The bottle was huge.

The aroma hits of licorice, anise and roots for days with peppermint. A bit of toothpaste.

The flavor follows with tons of licorice, anise, Jägermeister, Unicum. This spice flavor dominates a relatively thin 10% stout. One of the worst stouts I've had this year.

Bottle: Poured a pitch-black color ale with a relatively large foamy head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma consists of liquorice with sweet malt backbone. Taste is dominated by liquorice with some sweet malt and black chocolate notes. Body is about average with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Liquorice is an interesting ingredient but over-dominant in this case. Not sure why they insist in bottling this in 1 litre bottle.
