This is a good, strange, one-note beer with a very prominent herbal/liquorice character. You’ll either love it or hate it. I happen to love it.

hopdog (8773) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 30, 2014
Bottle. Poured a black color with a small sized tan head. Licorice, some herbalness (especially in the aromas and I’m guessing that is the Absinthe), roast, and chocolate.

fhoublon (312) - Lachine, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 27, 2014
Verre (en fût au coût de $5.00) dégusté sur place au resto-pub adjacent à la brasserie le 13 mars 2013. Bière noire opaque. Col crémeux mince beige. Très peu effervescente. Léger goût de chocolat noir et de café mais la réglisse noire (absinthe) domine le tout sans être gênante. Très bonne en son genre, pas trop lourde ni sirupeuse.

bunget (500) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 15, 2014
Bottle. Beautiful deep brown body, medium mocha head with good retention. Nasty aroma of solvent, leather, herbs and grain. Tastes somehow better, burned coffee, herbs, licorice, caramel, toast. Eh?

jkwood04 (3749) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 1, 2014
12oz bottle in a tulip. Pours black with a beige head. Aroma of absinthe herbs, roasted malts, some coffee and chocolate, and some light spices. Flavor the same with an interesting blend. Average texture. Cool but I couldn’t drink a lot of this.

cargo150 (522) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 18, 2013
Bière de couleur noire avec un beau col beige. Nez de malt grillé et d’épices(Absinthe surtout). En bouche Malt grillé sur une grande note d’absinthe avec une légère amertume. Une bière unique en son genre. Je ne l’es pas apprécié car je ne vois vraiment pas le lien avec une Stout et de l’absinthe mais elle gagne des points en originalité.

asheft (2476) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 17, 2013
Bottle from LCBO Isidore. Vanilla and chocolate aroma with a blast of minty licorice. Opaque dark brown with hazy highlights and a tawny, light brown cover. Sweet mocha and cream flavour with coffee and chocolate bitterness. Absinthe flavour is surprisingly subtle compared to aroma and comes in late but lingers. Medium full body, creamy feel, medium carbonation.

solidfunk (3605) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - NOV 3, 2013
Strange, but not bad. Pours pitch black with mocha head and lacing. Aroma of anise, some roast malt and some booze. Finishes with that note of bitter absinthe herb. Thick consistency. Tap at Gainsbourg.

chris__hartley (274) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 23, 2013
It pours opaque dark brown with mahogany highlights; the head is beige and foamy. The aroma has notes of: anise, fennel, toffee, mocha, and biscuit. The taste is light sweet that finishes medium astringent; there are notes of: anise, licorice, fennel, toffee, and bitter chocolate. The palate is medium bodied, has medium carbonation, and a medium finish. Overall, a unique twist, although the balance is dreadful.

TylerJonScott (69) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 15, 2013
Pours very opaque brown with a bit of a redish brown head. Aromas of coffee beans, herbs and spices, roasted malts and licorice. Tastes unlike any stout I have had. Very strong anise flavour with a blunt herb and spice middle. Almost tastes medicinal.
