I dont know what happened here or what the brewer wanted to do with this beer. Poured a deep brown, minimal head. Nose was of some liquorice, perhaps some butterscotch. Taste was bad. It had this kick to it and it was not a good one. The licourice taste was just to much for me and not something I could stand to drink anymore. The secret ingredient was thyme or thyne? Would not recommend at all.
