Pours a not-so-dark brown with a thin white head that leaves some really nice lacing. Nose is fresh and spicy, herbal. Not really like licorice but quite close. Taste is spicy and roasted, dry. Body is medium, slightly lacking. Finish is bitter and herbal, persistent. Carbonation is soft. Not bad at all, not your typical stout!

From spout scents of roasted barley malts, dark sweet liquorice malts, and from glass in addition faint hints of spices, maybe anise and fennel as mentioned. Huge standing cocoa (or tan) head, dark dark dark black-brown body, modest lacings. Taste; liquorice, coffee, dark chocolate, hops, dark chocolate malts, and some notes of spices, maybe fennel and aniseed. To palate ok, friendly. Finishes with dark chocolate, roasted caramel, spirited dark malts. Overall tasty, but not very advanced. (btl 0,5L abv7.6% tapped 14-08-2013 Broby Denmark, passed the Brigde Øresund one month later, was customs declared in Örebro Sweden, came to Systembolaget Luleå Sweden late autumn after 2000kms on the roads, bought by me february 2014, brought 700kms to Tromsø Norway, and finally tasted@home by me)

SlovakSniper (3013) - Candiac/Frelighsburg, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 14, 2014
Une bouteille de 50 cl partagée avec Ben au Saint-Bock. Un stout brun sans grande envergure mousseuse. Un nez qui mélange du chocolat et de la mélasse avec d’étranges épices. Un goût incertain. Quleque chose qui se rapproche de la mélasse fruitée et du pain de seigle. En bouche, un corps bien léger et une texture chamboulée. Une finale épicée avec du caramel foncée et des notes chocolatées. Ce stout est bien bizarre. Je pense qu’il ne m’est pas du tout adressé.

Backlog fra Cardinals crazy juleølsmaking. Jeg ticket alle de øllene, men så at de da ikke kom med på Statistikk, så nå blir det sånn ca...

PapaVillum (384) - Valby, DENMARK - JAN 30, 2014
50 cl, flaske, 7,6 % ABV, købt i SuperBest i Rotunden i Hellerup, 30. januar 2014. Sort stout med ca. 3 cm moccafarvet fintperlende og tæt skumtop. Sødlig og lidt "muggen" lakrids-agtig duft af stjerneanis og fennikel. Og dejlig indledende sød/bitter smag. Hvor eftersmagen er dyb, mørk og tør af stærk engelsk lakrids. God balance mellem de to smagselementer. God mundfølelse med et middel indhold af kulsyre. Uden at være selverklæret stout-ekspert vil jeg mene, at dette bryg er en "rigtig" stout, som kan drikkes hele året. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Toffee, cream, and fruit/berry aroma. Taste of coffee mocha with cream, foam candy, fennel, cocoa, and hints of mushroom, with an aftertaste of dark chocolates and some licorice. A fresh stout.

czar (4110) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 13, 2014
pours clear very dark brown, red tint, with a very nice creamy beige head, good retention and lacing. strong piney and chocolate coffee roasted maltiness, burnt caramel, smoky and scotchy, licorice, booze, very spicy - although it to blend in well. moderate carbonation, medium body - oily, silky, slightly harsh grassy-spicy-piney finish. balanced but boozy and therefore a limited drinkability. bold and tasty stout.
