Koromfekete, olajos testű ital egy tejsznszerű, bzs sznű habftyollal a tetejn, ami idővel kiss sszeesik ugyan, de mindvgig megmarad krmes, vkony fedlknt a srn. Illata fanyar, enyhe vadon termett gymlcss rnyalattal, amit egy prklt malts, kvs aroma lel krl. A szavatossgi idő leteltt kvetően joggal merl fel a krds, hogy az adott pillanatban rezhető jellemvonsokat a sr termszetnek, vagy az idő vasfognak szmljra rjuk inkbb, mindenesetre az illatban is tetten rhető savanyks jelleg hatrozottan szerephez jut az zben is. Az ecetes, savas krnyezet rvnyeslni hagy nmi bogys gymlcss, ha gy tetszik feketeribizlis hatst is, melyet sszessgben egyre kevsb tallunk erőltetett hasonlatnak, az idő mlsval leginkbb ezzel az sszetevővel kikvezett plyn haladnak a sr zbli jellemvonsai. Ha elvonatkoztatunk a szavatossgi krdskrtől, s az zhats tern tapasztalt krlmnyeket a hozzadott komponensek szmljra rjuk, gy egy rendkvl rdekes karakter megtesteslsnek lehetnk tani, melyben a leginkbb az utzben rvnyeslő feketeribizli jelenlte remek ellenslyt alkot a kvs-malts, pirtott zjegyekkel szemben. Az sszetevők kztt hivatkozott desgykr sajtossgai szmomra tkletesen ismeretlenek, az angol sz medvecukorknt trtnő azonostsnak helytllsgval szemben pedig az nizsos felhangok hinya breszt ktsget, gy ezen alkotelemről hitelesen nyilatkozni nem igazn tudok. Valamit azonban biztosan hozzad a főzet tartalmhoz, mert egybknt egy rdekes, tetszetősen jszerű zvilg mutatkozik meg benne.

gunnar (8550) - Sandnes, NORWAY - SEP 20, 2013
Bottle from Ales by Mail. Pours very dark brown with a big creamy tanned head. Aroma of burnt malt and liquorice. Taste is light sweet and roasty,dark fruits, lingering fruity, almost no traces of the liquorice, except in the utter finish, wouldnt mind more bitter liquorice for balance.Smooth mouthfeel.

Opaque black beer with a purple tint! Good pale tan head. Palate is light and dry. Dry dark malt. A little smoke, Trace of blackcurrant and as much apple, if not more! Mild minerals. Semi dry finish. A well executed blackcurrant and licorice stout would be a beer I would love to try. This aint it! Apologetic flavours.

mjs (6832) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 13, 2013
(Bottle, 0.5 l, courtesy of VastActive, 20130713) The beer poured almost black. Its head was medium sized and light brown. Aroma had roasted malts, sweetness and chocolate. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were sweetness, chocolate, roasted malts, hint of berries and medium bitterness. Aftertaste was ashy, sweet and bitterness. Not a bad brew but not impressive either.
