330 ml bottle. Unclear dark golden body with a big, creamy off-white head. Aroma has malt, citric fruit and a hint of pine. Flavor is rather malty with citric fruit, some sweet liquorice and relatively moderate bitterness. Medium body and OK aftertaste. Fair enough.

BlackHaddock (6629) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - NOV 23, 2016
7th Nov 2016: 330ml bottle between four at Chez Sophie, during the Shrewsbury monthly beer share meeting. Cheers Mat. Liquorice rules this brew, becoming stronger as you sipped it. Amber bodied with a white head, it had a semi-sweetness throughout, but overpowered by that liquorice content. I liked it, but i like liquorice.

darbeer75 (702) - Round Rock, Texas, USA - OCT 29, 2016
Aroma: floral with a hint of licorice; Appearance: amber with fluffy white head that dissipates slowly; Taste: not very hoppy or bitter for an IPA; no bite; hoppiness replaced indirectly by licorice- very unusual; Palate: medium body with long, odd finish; Overall: not my favorite combination.
