Appearance: Dark as night with a medium sized, brown, head.
Aroma: Caramel, Licorice, Yeast, and some roasted malts.
Taste: Salammoniac, Licorice, Yeast, Caramel, and alcohol.
Palate: Overcarbonated and it has a homebrew-feel to it. Ends bitter with hint of spices.
Meh. I think this beer will taste better after some aging.
