Benzai (9549) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - MAY 23, 2014
Bottle @ home shared with Dutchdrebus. Red brown color, medium sized light brown head that leaves fair lacing. Aroma is full on anise, not my thing. Taste malts, again strongly anise, some mint, lightly roasty, some liquorice. Medium body and carbonation. Well, this is probably what they intended to brew and I think they succeeded, but it’s not my thing. Too much anise and mint flavors for my liking.

DutchDrebus (4501) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - MAY 23, 2014
Bottle @ benzai. Dark ruby to brown colour with a medium to large sized off-white to beige head. Smells anice, iron, herbs, spices, sweet, hint of liquorice. Tastes anice, herbs, spices. I really don’t like anice. Medium to full body, nice carbo.

rodenbach99 (3460) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 22, 2014
Bouteille. Bière noire avec une mousse brune durable. Un nez de réglisse, d’anis, de chocolat. La bouche est des stout soit chocolat, café avec des notes de réglisses noires. Agréable car les épices sont en second.

Countbeer (5034) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - MAY 16, 2014
Bottle: Served in a shaker: Creamy vanilla beige foamy head on top of a deep dark red ish brown colored beer. Aromas of herbs, special branch, anise, mint, cloves, milk, some toast, some dried leaves and a light chocolate/coffee tint. Flavours of herbs and spices, some coffee, some mocha, some chocolate, some anise and cloves, dried leaves, some bitters and malts. Aftertaste is malty, light bitter, nutty with dried leaves and some chocolate/cacoa with a light spiced edge. Low carbo, creamy mouthfeel, more than just a medium body and a creamy texture. Nice beer, spices well balanced.

MartinT (8351) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 11, 2014
My Bottom Line:
This fruity and spicy Stout develops just fennel/aniseed/licorice notes within roastiness, caramelized sugars and earthy bread flavors.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam covers the brown-edged darkness.
-This is surprisingly drinkable.
-Wood is also evoked throughout.
-This was not as sweet as expected.
-The finish is spicy, bitter and roasty.
-Some vanilla is found underneath.
-The spice/herb dosage is successful.

Peu d’arômes ressortent de cette bière, est-ce par ce que cela fait longtemps que je l’ai ou bien le type de verre que j’ai utilisé. Je ne sais pas, mais les arômes sont fades et sans odeurs précises.La magnifique couleur noire foncé et épaisse comme de la mélasse.Une légère mousse blanc cassé coiffe cette bière. Une bière dont les saveurs de café, tiramisus, cacao, épices et réglisse sont impressionnantes. L’anis est une des épices qui ressort du lot mélangé avec un petit côté vanillé, comme une gousse de vanille. Le malt est bien torréfié et a un bon goût assez présent. Cette bière me fait également penser au goût d’une truffe au chocolat dans le temps des Fêtes. La texture est agréable en bouche, avec une bonne effervescence plutôt étonnante qui donne du caractère à cette bière. Elle est longue en bouche ce qui permet de goûter toutes ses subtilités. Par contre, elle est lourde ce qui fait d’elle plutôt un digestif de fin de soirée à partager.

Dark brown coloured. Has an off-white head, lasting. Aroma of mint, roasted, coffee, spicy and laqurice. Sweet flavor with more laqurice.

50 cl bottle from systembolaget bs. Pours black with small tan head. Smokey aroma with a smoky and spicy taste. Ok.

mathieuc (1818) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 28, 2014
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!

djoeye (2123) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 24, 2014
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)
