Bottle from back in 2013. Cleaning out the corners of the rot box tonight. Pours opaque black, medium creamy tan head, dissipates with lots of residual and nice lacing. Aroma is roast, hints of smoke, molasses, black licorice. Flavor is light plus sweet, light bitter, roasty, earthy, molasses and anise. Full bodied. I really wanted to hate this as a gimmick beer, but its actually pretty well done. Mark_Eck (1957) - - JUL 9, 2016
Bottle. Pours black. Aroma and taste are roastedness, some chocolate, and licorice. blahbobbyblah (103) - Texas, USA - JUN 20, 2016
Poured from a growler. Deep and dark which works well for me today. A beer that does not play around with its taste.

C-. Pours a black color with tan head. The finish is far too dry for my preference.
