Leighton (21081) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2012
Bottle kindly shared by Paul at The Kernel, London. Pours black with a thick, creamy beige head. Dark malt nose with some licorice, alcohol. Medium to big sweet flavor, some burnt dark malts, light rubbery chocolate, strong roasted malts, some earthy bitterness. Full bodied with fine to average carbonation. Lightly warming on the finish with dark malts, chocolate, bittersweet cocoa, light rubber, mellow spices. Pretty OK stuff.

fiulijn (20372) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 1, 2012
Draught at Moeder Lambic, Fontainas, vintage 2011
Pitch black color, with creamy brownish head. Strong aroma, of liquorice and anise, followed by the roasted malt, and coffee. Roasted malt flavor, not aggressive, with the necessary mild sweetness; the liquorice/anise component blends well into this. Well brewed, but not with ingredients that I look for.

Bottle @ Aarhus tasting. Black with a dark brown head. Aroma is sweet, roasted malt, liquorice and anise. Flavor is quite sweet and rather bitter. Dry and roasted rather bitter finish. 050313

Koelschtrinker (20208) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - NOV 13, 2011
Würziger lakritzartiger Antrunk, süß malzig, eine gewisse Herbe ist vorhanden. Alkoholischer, angenehm malziger Mittelteil, in dem die Anfangsaromen geringer erscheinen. Eine Trockenheit herrscht vor allem im Abgang. 10/11/11//11

Theydon_Bois (19189) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - NOV 17, 2014
Keg at Stone Liberty Station, 13/11/14. Black with a decent tan swirl and edgeing. Nose is rich roast, aniseed well evident, spice, chocolate, toffee. Taste comprises mellow dark fruits, spice, aniseed, light yeast notes, dark malts, chocolate. Medium + body, fine carbonation, semi drying close tempered with sweet and sour notes. Decent enough impy but a fair way from top draw.

rlgk (18847) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 3, 2011
Bottle at Ekstedts tasting 2011-12-02. Black beer, small beige head. Anise aroma, roasted and with some licorice. Anise flavor. Too much to be really good.

harrisoni (18411) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 30, 2011
At Chriso New Year 2011/12 tasting. Black beer lasting thick beige head. Aniseed on aroma. Yes too much aniseed some decent impy stout but ruined one of my favourite beers with the anise

Dark opaque color, nice brown head. Strong aroma of licorice, coffee and anise. Full-bodied, soft palate. Sweetish, loads of licorice, some roasted malts and anise. Long licoricey aftertaste. A bit cloying, otherwise nice beer.
