Uniquely different dark wheat ale. This beer is brewed with a touch of star of anise at the end of the boil to give it a nice smooth finish with a slight hint of licorice. Caution, just like a Black Widow, this beer will bite you if you are not careful!

Bottle from Cavie. Very dark color, white head. I do smell the hint of liquorish, but it's not overpowering. Maybe a hint of coffee in the flavor. Feels a little thin in the mouth.

Aromas of wheat, clove and Belgian yeast. Interesting dark color for a beer that leans toward this style. Full and smooth. Nice head retention. Flavors blended well with some citrus combined with the wheat and traditional spices. Unique.

DrunkSanta410 (900) - Houston, Texas, USA - FEB 14, 2015
Tap at brewery. Pours dark black, little head. Aroma of spices, pepper, faint black licorice. Taste is spices, definitely anise with faint pepper. Malts mellow out the wit in this, more of a spiced ale to me. Medium body, light carbonation. Unique.

texrx (40) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JAN 18, 2015
Pour: dark, dark brown with a small tan head. Smell: like an imperial stout w/ raisin & dark chocolate notes - a hint of caramel. Slight alcohol scent. Taste: like an imperial stout w/ a delicate wheat base. Raisin, dark chocolate and apricot notes. Some pine resin, too! Mouthfeel: Dry, slightly bitter finish. Goes down very smooth..... Very unique. Could use more wheat. A belgian yeast would be awesome! Still an A beer! :)

ronaldtheriot (1888) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - NOV 15, 2014
No Label Black Wit-O has a very thin, beige head, a dark, ruby-brown-black appearance, fierce, tiny bubble streams, and almost no lacing. Aroma is of licorice, dark malt, and sweet, brown bread. Taste is more bready than licorice, but that is certainly present. Bitterness is nil. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and Black Wit-O finishes semi-dry and a bit bland and dull. RJT

Dogbrick (12578) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 6, 2014
Sample at Mongoose vs Cobra. Brownish-black color with a medium beige head that diminishes steadily. Strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roast malt, yeast and spice. Medium body with flavors of roast malt, herbal yeast and mild coffee. The finish is roasty malt and spices. Decent overall.

Vcoggins (53) - Cypress, Texas, USA - OCT 4, 2014
Pours clear and very dark. 2 finger head that quickly disperses. No lacing. Love the smell. Lots of licorice with a bit of wheat. Taste is similar to smell. Licorice in the primary flavor. Mouth feel is light and crisp. Surprisingly light for the amount of flavor. I love the licorice taste. This one gets points for having more licorice flavors than any other beer Ive tried.

TXBadger (2763) - Dallas, Texas, USA - AUG 5, 2014
Pours a dark brown, almost black with tan colored head. Roasted malt, coffee, and just a hint of anise on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with more roasted malt.

Pershing (551) - Garland, Texas, USA - DEC 8, 2013
Pours jet black into a goblet. Fast disappearing head with no lacing. Aroma of roasted malt and coffee with a little spice and yeast. Not much visual carbonation with a smooth silky mouthfeel. Clean dry finish. Not bad at all.
