Way too much anise for my taste. Albeit i didnt read the description and wasnt ready for it i just thought it was very one dimensional. I think i also had it on cask.

On tap. Poured a dark brown/amber with a small off-white head. Aroma is grassy with lots of spice. Taste is very spicy with some good caramel flavors. Some citrus with malts and nuts. Too much carbonation. I would have enjoyed this more, but I thought there were too many spices that detracted from the other good flavors.

Tastes a bit like burnt coffee and caramel. Has a sweet smell to it with a tiny bit of burntness. However, the burnt taste was a bit of a welcomed surprise. I like.

draught at wharf rat @ camden yards:
pours a clean clear ice tea brown with a foamy and creamy lasting off white head.
aroma is malty with a little roaast and quite sweet i also get very fruity esters almost like a belgian very complex for a brown.
flavour is rich and creamy with roastedness and some bitter. hints of alcohol come thru and some chocolate and a great malt backing. excellent beer.

Draught at the Wharf Rat in fells point. Clear amber brown body with small off white head. Mildly sweet hop malt aroma. Malt and nuts on the pallet with a smooth richness. Slight caramel nut malt bitterness towards the end, flavorful! Quaffed this on a hot summer day trudging around Fells point with Death with a K and the wife and really liked it. Looking forward to getting down there again this year.
