Bottled. Clear cola like color, thin lacy head. Slightly smoky/burnt rubbery nose, yeast, strawberries and dried apricot, hayish hops. A hint of chocolate. Softly smoky flavor based on sweetish grains. Yeasty cloves in the finish with some soft/herbal bitterness. Long, softly smoky aftertaste. Texture ois slightly fizzy and yeasty. Medium body. Quite well balanced.

bewyder (286) - FRANCE - AUG 25, 2015
Marron foncée avec reflets cuivrés, trouble, l’anis est perceptible d’emblée au nez et la première bouche suit le pas pour une première impression presque désagréable. Évidemment je n’aime pas l’anis. Puis des notes malt et chocolat viennent, dans une petite douceur de baies, l’anis ne se faisant pas dominant. Pas complètement à mon goût donc mais finalement pas mauvaise, pour un ensemble équilibré. Intéressante. Bouteille 33cl achetée en grandes surfaces, Saint-Hilaire de Riez, France, bue le 24/08/2015.

Dark ale with strong smell of bourbon, no head, little carbonation and not much else. From a bottle at home so I'll give it another go one day but I'm not rushing it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ianwelby (799) - SCOTLAND - DEC 28, 2014
Dark beer with a thin head and a smell of chocolate, fruit and malt. Flavour follows suit with the fruit coming through quite strong. Body is a touch watery but it’s very drinkable.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - AUG 31, 2014
Bottled 12/08/14. A dark brown coloured beer with a whitish head. A decent malty brown ale type beer. Good nutty flavours. Nice depth. Fruity elements. Liked this.

VDuquerroux (823) - Airvault, FRANCE - MAY 6, 2014
Bottle, 75cL. Home. A dark brown beer with brown orange hues on the top. Medium white head. Poor persistence. Smoked aroma, caramel, herbs, spices (liquorice, anise). Medium refreshing bitter, medium sugary sweet. Medium body, oily texture. Soft carbonation. Warming finish. Overall, a pleasant bittersweet smoked-spicy brown ale.

hawthorne00 (3051) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - OCT 9, 2013
Bottle. Brown with a pale beige head that fades to a coat then lasts OK. Aroma of dough, carob, intriguing spices - mace, anise and what is presumably lady’s mantle (according to the bottle). Less full-bodied than the aroma suggests, sweet, a bit nutty, carob, dries out towards an end that has little bitterness. Aniseed becomes quite prominent after a while. Interesting beer, would go a treat with terrine.
