RAYBOY01 (2012) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 16, 2011
Tap at Maple Tree Inn, Blue Island, IL.:Black pour with substantial head. Nose is roasted grain, chocolate, anise, spicy, vanilla, oak, and alcoholic. Huge ABV is prominent but not offensively so...a tad drying in the finish. This despite all the intensely sweet flaor notes that precede it...Chocolate, vanilla, big anise, oak, roasted barley. Relatively lively carbonation. Complex beer and extraordinarily potent...so be careful with this one.

Has a sweet licorice taste with some nice layered chocolate notes. Nice bitter layers with the espresso flavors. The booze comes through but compliments the beer nicely. Very solid beer.
