Editor’s note: made in cooperation with the gourmet licorice producer "Lakrids by Johan Bülow".

Danish: En brun-sort øl med beige farvet skumhat. Duften præges af lakridsrod og karamel. Smagen hviler et sted mellem en lakridssnegl og et pænt Piratos-punch. Den solide maltbasis bestående af Münchner, Wiener, Melanoidin, Karamel og Hvede malt, samt ristet byg, formår at bære lakridsen fint. Humlen er nedtonet og har kun til opgave at afbalancere lakrids og maltsødme. Der er anvendt både rålakrids og lakrids sirup.

Chocolate aroma with notes of coffe with milk and vaccinia. Pitch black beige head. Taste starts bit sweet chocolate not much liquorice on the beginning, but the finish is heavy on liquorice and very longlasting. Medium to full body, low carbonation creamy texture. Nice liquorice explosion in the finish

50cl bottle. Very dark brown color, but not quite clear. Aroma sweet with a small anis. Taste is liquorice, roasted but rather sweet. Moutfeel medium. A special beer, but interesting to taste.

Bamsen78 (2958) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAY 14, 2014
Bottle. Pours cloudy very dark brown with ample but airy tan head. Clear aroma of malt and caramel, with roasty notes. Sweetish flavour of caramel malt and sweet liquorice, offset by hops and bitter liquorice notes. Touches of nuts. Lingering, bittersweet aftertaste. Rather high carbonation for the style. Liquorice notes permeate the entire testing experience. Decent but not really mind-blowing.

Nice looks, a good taste with a balanced licorice taste. I didn't care to much for the smell... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
