This is the best License beer ever. This thing has a huge body and I would have bought it on itís own accord. I hope that it brings in a lot of craft brew fans from the license.

On draft up in NYC while on vacation. Hard to find anything wrong with this brew. Its a solid stout but there isnít anything that stands out either. Great palate and mouth feel. But the flavor is a bit too standard. Very very good nonetheless. I shouldnít complain so much.

Beerenberger (1601) - Fischer, Texas, USA - NOV 4, 2013
Fruit, anise, roasted malts, milk chocolate, and suggestions of vanilla. Pours a inky black with a robust slowly diminishing khaki head and aboundent lacing. The taste is roasty, malty, woody, earthy, raisins, milk chocolate, all with a tempered bitter finish. Medium-full body and moderate carbonation. Smooth, round mouthfeel. Overall, a very rewarding and enjoyable stout that I would drink again.

Alright, one, this isnít even a stout. It isnít. Itís certainly a black lager or ale, but itís not nearly sweet or silky enough to call itself a stout. The commercial description above is more or less correct, but the hoppy bitterness is just too intense and unwelcome in this beer. Itís reasonably well made, but if itís going to have this much hops it really needs to be sweeter to balance it out. Regretting this purchase. :(

On tap @ Beachwood BBQ. Black in color with a khaki head. Aroma is big on the roasted malt and smoke. Licorice, char, and some dark fruits. Kind of woody and herbal, a bit of earth and coffee grounds. Flavor is only mildly sweet with a pronounced bitterness. Smoke and roast dominate up front. Lots of licorice, mild fruit sweetness, some coffee, earth, woody herbs, and earth. Not a huge fan.

Bottle. Pours with a black hued body and a massive brown head that lasts. Aromas are of nutty roast, dark fruits, campfire, mild esters, anise, toasted wood, earthy. Flavors are of roast, plums, campfire, rye bread, light smoke, lightly metallic, roast, mild anise, very dry and earthy for what I was expecting. Carbonic. Medium body with massive carbonation. Roast character is a bit too sharp for my liking.
