This rich black stout made with black malt and crystal rye, has root liquorice added in the boil. Together wit a gentle hopping for a very palatable finnish.

Cask @ Port Street Beer House, Manchester. Extremely dark, but not quite black, with a thin off-white head. Has a sticky sweet texture with the liquorice dominant in both aroma and taste over roasted malts, which are hard to find. Tastes like candy in its lingering aftertaste.

500ml bottle - A dark brown/black pour with a smallish beige head. Liqourice, roasty aroma. Tastes of liqourice, coffee, a little malt. Very similar to the Tomlinson’s Liquorice Stout, but without the kick.

leaparsons (9543) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 19, 2012
Cask, The Salmon, Leicester. Black with a firm cream foam. Aromas are coffee with nutty notes. Raisins and blackberry with liquorice and some burnt toast. Peppery with hints of cream and yeast. Flavours are rich, bitter coffee with sweet dark berries. Fruity with bready yeast and a dry, peppery finish. Pretty good.

imdownthepub (12680) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2012
Cask conditioned at Coventry Beer Fest ’12. Black with tan head. Yes, certainly liquorice, bitter but with a sweet toffee crackling note too. Smoky, peaty malt note. Pretty decent.

tombyars (1568) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - SEP 30, 2011
Tasted this at the Paisley Beer Festival in May 2010. Cask, gravity dispense. Dull black in colour with an open buff head which vanished quickly. Strange lingering aroma of McCoys bacon sizzler crisps? Oily mouthfeel and no lacing. Dark malts give a strong mix of black treacle and liquorice flavours. Bitter hop resins seep into the aftertaste and dominates the finish with dry tanins. An interesting stout but one is more than enough.
