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.

½ liter bottle. Pours quite black with caramel-coloured head; gorgeous. Sweet smell of coffee and malt. Flavour is heavy on burnt coffee with a hint of licorice and a somewhat peculiar acidic aftertaste. Good, but not great.

Bottle 33cl, a dark beer with low head. Nose is dark chocolate, vegetable and chili like notes. Aroma is on smooth dark chocolate, toffee, licorice wood, kind of chili or pepper notes, coffee beans, quite sweet. Long licorice wood notes on aftertaste, pleasant beer.

Nevalainen (273) - FINLAND - AUG 14, 2015
The color is black with high beige head. Aroma is roasty, licorice and somekind of licorice bakery. Taste is quite sweet and has a smokey flauvour, well balanced. The beer has a long licorice testing finish. Very nice experience.

TorbenJensen (792) - Valby, DENMARK - JUL 26, 2015
Foam is creamy and durable. The aroma is not atypical for a stout, but contains the familiar notes of licorice, coffee and roasted malt. The first mouthful is a little light, a little like a dry stout. A little burnt taste stands out and then proceeds quite quickly to the taste of licorice root are slowly growing in strength and become English liquorice in abundance. Licorice taste lasts long and only slightly hop bitterness is to track towards the end.

Spændende og lækker. En "nem" og ukompliceret øl. Ingen bitterhed og ringe karbonering. Gør sig fint til dessert. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Indeed lots of licorice aromas here. More or the classic kind, but woody and cassonade like, not so much bay leave. Some sweetness but not very caramelised, giving a dry feel. Surely enough bitterness, but again classic in its approach. Butterscotch ending (but not in an off flavour way), quite short. It’s okay. Ugly label, BTW. (33cl bottle from Saveur Bière)

mzaar (2077) - Varberg, SWEDEN - MAY 15, 2015
Flaska från Prövestenens Vinhandel, Helsingör. Mörkbrun öl med ett stort beigt skum. Dofter av karamell, mjölkchoklad och lakritsrot. Smakinslag av lakritsrot, mörk choklad, rostad malt och karamell. Jag hade inte haft något emot ytterligare en släng av lakritsroten; det var inte alls dumt med den ingrediensen. Medelkropp. Skön lakritston i eftersmaken.

Bottled at Quality Vänersborg Black with a small, beige head. Rather light are with dark bread and brown sugar. Sweet liquorice in the flavour along with brown sugar. A bit too sweet.
