3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Dark brown with a red hue and a nice, huge head. The aroma has notes of anise (strong) and I also find licorice and malt. The flavour has notes of yeast, anise, licorice, roasted malt, caramel light sweetness and rye bread and a slightly dry finish. IMO too much anise!
