MrBunn (2523) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 26, 2013
Sample at Eccentric. Body is deep brown and supports little head. Aromas are weakly hinting at coffee and dark brown sugar. Flavor is lots of coffee and a little anise that picks up on the tail end. Finish is bitter and licorice like.

Really enjoyed this beer. Wish it would have been a little bit more dense. As the beer warmed up the flavors really grew in all great ways.

Dark brown, not black, which was strange, and very cloudy, which was stranger. Malty brown flavors. A little too sweet for my taste.
