3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
October 30, 2011 - Volo Cask Days 2011 - gravity cask. Clear ruby-black with a small frothy beige head. Aroma and flavour - mostly deep coffee bean roast and licorice, not much alcohol. Light-bodied, weakly carbonated, with a ... licorice finish. Not bad, but a real mild one-noter - and I don’t like licorice.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
2011-10-30. Black body with a modest fluffy tan head. 3+ Licorice flavour is not super strong, sweet dark malt, mild anise and roast in the finish. Mild aroma, similar dark malt and licorice notes. 6+ Average bodied palate is decent but just a touch thin for the beer. Decent, bit mild overall but enjoyable. Cask Days 2011, Toronto
