Bottle. Back (but not pitch black) pour with a nice half and inch head. Coffee and licorice initially with citrus, spice, grass and floral aroma. Well balanced and not overwhelming but complex yet easy to approach. Very nice

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a black color with an enormous foamy dark tan head that lingered forever and left good lacing. The aroma was bitter anise, floral hops, a bit of vanilla and a touch of dark fruits. The flavor was very bitter, dry and roasty with a malty undertone and notes of anise, Pine-sol and floral hops. Long roasty, bitter and dry finish with lingering anise and floral hops. Medium body. Meh.
