3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber poured into oversized red wine glass.
Aroma: candy, licorice, roasted malt
Appearance: pours thick, pitch black. Long head retention slowly dissipates to a simple ring around the circumference of the glass.
Taste: sweet, black licorice with a medium bitter finish. The dark roasted malt base provides a nice canvas for these other flavors.
Palate: silky smooth. Full bodied.
Overall, a pretty good beer, especially if you like black licorice. Personally, I'm not a big fan of licorice and I still liked this.
