Bottle from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours dark brown wiht a slight creamy/foamy tan head. Aroma is chocolate, sweet dark malt and a bit of anise. Med body. Flavor is chocolate and not very sweet, if at all, dark malt with definite anise following on. Interesting.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a very dark brown color with a moderate light tan head on it. Nose has just a tiny bit of black licorice in there with some slight bit of roasting in there as well. Taste is fairly roasty, but with a little bit of the sourish-sweet notes of the licorice coming across. Not a huge fan, as I don’t like licorice, but OK.
