Shared by Gloupgloupburp at HF anniversary bottle share... MEGADESTROYER strikes with the fury of 1000 good n plentys. Do you like black licorice a lot? If you do you will love this thing. If you dont you will hate it. If youre indifferent towards it then youll still probably hate it.

Bottle at the Hill Farmstead second anniversary party courtesy of someone. Pours a deep black with a thin tan head. Licorice, citrus, roast. Medium to thick bodied, lots of sweet roast, more licorice. Roast, licorice, candy. Long lingering licorice bitterness. Not really for me.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Swingtop growler shared by glouglouburp. Bigtime potent in black licorice all up in your face. Some dry milk chocolate and doughy malts. Fine in small doses, but licorice is overwealming after an ounce or so, as may have been megadestroyers intention, who knows.

Solid black with a beige head. Aroma is very powerful black licorice, anise. Taste is plum, licorice, black currant. Thick on the palate with a slightly bitter aftertaste. A little heavy on the licorice but quite an interesting beer, could improve nicely with aging.
