Willemoes Ale with licorice. The ale is produced from the finest Dansih malt, brewed with top fermenting yeast, and the finest hop from American hop plants. The taste is balanced with brown sugar and licorice, so the right balance between sweetness and body is gained.

Flott skum! Litt syrlig start. Fyldig og rundt. Mildt, med en viss søtlighet. Noe brent smak, noe frukt (plomme). Litt lakris (er tilsatt). Lang. Blir tørr langt ute. Humlen kunne kanskje vært litt bedre, men ellers var det mye bra her.

500ml bottle, 5.2 % abv, thanks to djoeye for sharing. Clear copper coloured body, a deep ruby shade to it. Fair beige head. Brown malty aroma, notes of dried fruits. Dark caramel flavours added by raisin, forest and dark fruits. Malt-fruity end. Fair enough (Tromsø 16.03.2015).

Dark off white top, copper near clear beer, rimmy lacing. Luxurious aroma of fruity malts, raisin dust, sweet brown malted candies. Taste; candiced hops, brown malts, candy, fruits, raisin, dwarf almond, plums and dark caramel. Good feel and body, and a fading fruity good finish. Superb moments.

Copenhagen 6/2 2015. 50 cl bottle from Kvickly. Pours clear brown with off-white head. Gradually subsiding. Aroma is not very distinct. A little sweetness. Not much else. Medium carbonation. Taste is rather sweet and candylike and almost without bitterness. A whole candystore masquerading as beer.

Benfi (627) - DENMARK - DEC 30, 2014
Sweet and very metallic aroma. Equally metallic taste, but with hints of caramel. Red-brown coloured beer with a thin head, that disappears quite fast.

Very interesting beer. Nose is very metallic and off putting: but it has a nice deep brown color and frothy beige head. Taste is sweet but in no way sickly. It doesn't taste like licorice per say but it counterbalances the sweetness to give a coffee toffee taste. Not my style but good on a winters night!

The fist sip will leave you embarrassed. This is not an ale as I would expect it. No hops rubbing your palate, a sweetish maltiness fills up your moth and a uncommon, yet intense taste of licorice. And yes, they add licorice to this ale… Unfortunately not the sharp licorice that suits a lot of other beers, it’s a sweet licorice. Sort of "drop" which is soooo much liked by dutch children. But here... nor the children (they are not yet allowed to), nor myself really like it. Maybe becaose the harmony between the different If the maker of the Haribo Lakritzschnecken would brew a beer - this would most likely be the result. The biggest error you could make, is trusting the label and awaiting an real Ale.

Bottle. Nice clear brown color, with a medium, fine brown head. Nose is Sweet malty, heavy, dried fruits, toffee. Sweet taste, only light bitter, with a bit sourness. Medium texture, with flat carbonation. Aftertaste is somewhat earthy, maybe liquorice, not bad.

floydian1 (1120) - FNQ, Australia, - OCT 27, 2014
500ml bottle in Hamburg (BB 7/3/15). Brown colour with a decent beige head that laces soapily. Fragrant sweet aromas with caramel, molasses, dark fruits and a touch of coffee and liquorice. Tongue is sweet and malty with a very mild dry hop finish. Palate is quite light for the ABV with a soft carbonation. Quite quaffable despite the sweetness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
