3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Poured a black color stout with a large dark brown foamy head with OK retention and some good carbonation. Aroma of dry roasted coffee notes with light spices is enjoyable enough. Taste is also dominated by dry roasted coffee which is well balanced and avoids the astringency side of things. Fennel notes are present but not as pronounced as I would have hoped for. Body is about average for style with good carbonation. Enjoyable but added complexity would have been welcomed.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle @ home shared with Dutchdrebus. Red brown color, medium sized light brown head that leaves fair lacing. Aroma is full on anise, not my thing. Taste malts, again strongly anise, some mint, lightly roasty, some liquorice. Medium body and carbonation. Well, this is probably what they intended to brew and I think they succeeded, but it’s not my thing. Too much anise and mint flavors for my liking.
