Reimer96 (1444) - Alberta, CANADA - APR 17, 2015
Pours an opaque black with a small brown head that leaves good legs on the glass. Aroma of anise, roasted malts, cocoa, smoke, campfire and black licorice... Great Aroma. Taste is peated malts, roasted malts, black licorice, burnt sugar and a smooth bitterness on the finish. Complex and balanced with a bit of a cloying mouthfeel likely due to the addition of sugar.
