In short: liquorice ale.
Pours dark copper with little off white head. Short head retention, some lacing. Really intenseliquorice aromas, some toher roasty and acid ones. Medium body, asoft carbonation, oily texture. Taste follows the nose, dark bitter liquorice flavours, some sweet caramel, little roasty, subtle acid due to dark malt bill. Peculiar and pleasant for a single cup.

Bottle, 50cl. Pours dark amber-towards brown color with a beige, foamy head. Aroma is ... oh. Roasted malt, candy sugar, almonds, sweet soft liquorice, fruit, gajol booze. Wierd stuff. Flavour is sweet, roasted malts, caramel, heavy liquorice, roasted malts, brown sugar. Finish light salty liquorice. Oily texture. Better taste than flavour. Average body and carbonation.

3.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance: Dark coffe colour with a touch of red.
Nose: Coffee, dark burned malt, some liquorice and Christmas spices.
Taste & palate: Medium bodied, creamy, very fruity, with a touch of sweetness and plenty of Christmas spices. Slightly coffee-bitter finish which lingers on into a medium to long aftertaste.
All in all a nicely balanced stout, tasty, appealing and easy to drink. Dry and fruity enough to not drop into the (slightly) sweeter category of dessert & Christmas stouts. Nice!

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Bottle). The smell is strange and nasty with hints of acidic urine, sweet malt, tart fruit and licorice. The taste is better than the aroma, much taste of salty licorice, and with hints of roasted malt, oats and hops.
