Pour on tap at the brewery, dark black pour with tan head, aroma brought notes of roast, coffee, slight chocolate, hints of spice, slight caramel note in there as well. Taste is a nice mix of chocolate, coffee, lots of roast, slight dark fruit, hints of caramel, spice, finishing fairly bitter, roasted.

brokensail (16055) - Dublin, California, USA - MAR 15, 2010
A: The pour on this one is quite nice. A deep, dark brown color with a very fluffy tan head which dies down a decent amount but leaves some nice lacing. S: The nose is incredibly heavy on the licorice notes, but that is to be expected. There are also some molasses and roasted malt undertones. T: The flavor has a little bit more balance to it than the nose does. While there is still plenty in the way of licorice, a bit more of the molasses comes through along with a touch of toffee and some roasted malt. M: The body is medium with a moderate level of carbonation. D: I enjoy licorice, but you really have to be a fan of it for this beer. I think a little bit less in the way of the star anise in the brewing process would make this beer a lot better.

On tap at Stone Bistro. Clear brown pour, small off-white head. Roasted malt, lots of licorice, molasses, and some peat. Interesting beer, the licorice really stands out.

antioch (6) - Riverside, California, USA - MAR 8, 2010 does not count
On tap at the tasting room. Pours a very dark brown and smells of black licorice mostly, some aroma of roasted malts come through too. Anise is a very dominating aroma though. The taste was that of the licorice, but had the feel of a nice porter. Good beer, interesting.
