At first I thought this was aged in a scotch girl. Turns out the licorice, molasses, and O'Farrell get the same effect. Really great taste, could use a touch more pallet. The nose is a little soft. Been very good beer

Pours a very dark brown almost black with tan colored head. A lot of roast on the nose, some raw cocoa as well and just a hint of wood, oak; follows onto the palate. Finishes with more roast and warmth.
