3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at BrewDog Camden on 13 Oct 2012. Poured black, with a dense tan head. Really nice aroma of dark chocolate, roasted malt and liquorice. Sadly the initial flavours were far too sweet for my liking; the chocolate became saccharine syrup, with sweet coffee and only a very small amount of bitterness coming through. Mouth feel was fairly full. Finish was far better, the burnt malt built up and balanced out the sweetness.

Can from the Fyne Ales brewery shop. Pours black with a tan head. The aroma is sweet with treacle and liquorice. The taste is sweet too with treacle, liquorice, a little vanilla. Remind me somewhat of dandilion and burdock. Strong flavours and interesting. Not one Iíd want to drink a lot of though.

Bottle. Black beer with a reasonable light brown head. The aroma is malty with mild roastedness, and the flavour is gently bitter with a fairly vinous hit and quite deep roastedness. Overall a nice vinous and roasted porter.

"16 oz can...nice. pours black with cocoa head that immediately disappears, though the bar is anything but flat. the anise reminds me a little of stone RIS without the hops. licorice and chocolate (and alcohol) evident in the aroma and flavor. prickly feel that warms you nicely. a nice beer/change of pace."

Bottle from Beer Shop, St Albans. Dark, dark brown. Surprisingly little head. Smell of American milk chocolate, liquorice, hazelnut: nicer than it sounds if somewhat artificial. Sweet taste, the star anise really comes through. Slightly sickly. Nice creamy palette with lots of tickly carbonation. Interesting stuff, very well made but a bit too clever for its own good.
