COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Editors note: made in cooperation with the gourmet licorice producer "Lakrids by Johan Blow".

Danish: En brun-sort l med beige farvet skumhat. Duften prges af lakridsrod og karamel. Smagen hviler et sted mellem en lakridssnegl og et pnt Piratos-punch. Den solide maltbasis bestende af Mnchner, Wiener, Melanoidin, Karamel og Hvede malt, samt ristet byg, formr at bre lakridsen fint. Humlen er nedtonet og har kun til opgave at afbalancere lakrids og maltsdme. Der er anvendt bde rlakrids og lakrids sirup.

Wow, liquorice from one end to the other. Smoke, roasted malt and more liquorice. If you want that much liquorice, eat liquorice and drink a good stout to it...

Idiosynkrasie (6687) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - NOV 14, 2015
330ml bottle. Jet black colour with average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, beige to tan head. Roasty dark malty aroma with hints of liquorice and a touch of blueberry. Taste is sweet, slightly roasty dark malty, notes of liquorice, a touch of treacle; viscous texture, sirupy, viscid palate. Focused, slightly too sweet and mono-thematic.

Johan Bülow og Svaneke Bryghus har slået pjalterne sammen og brygget englesaft. Kulsort og stort set uden skum. Mellemkraftig næse af lakrids med et nyk kaffe. Smagen er intens ... lakrids fra starten komplimenteret med en kort bitterhed, som straks afløses af en lang sødlig smag sprængfyldt med kraftige toner af engelsk lakrids ... af den gode slags :-) Eftersmagen giver næsten en fornemmelse af at have nydt et godt stykke rålakrids. En af de bedste danske øl jeg har smagt. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Danish stout in, according to the label, "English style" and flavoured with actual liquorice, so Im expecting sweet stout here... Creamy but fairly thin and opening, pale yellowish beige head over a very dark mahogany coloured beer, not quite black, at least not on the edges. Aroma shouts (typically English) liquorice candy all the way through, next to more subtle odours of bitter chocolate, fried mushrooms, cappuccino, candied figs, soft balsamic vinegar, caramel, black pepper, Worcestershire sauce, dried flowers, raisins, hints of aniseed liqueur (in a dull kind of way - probably that liquorice again), dried leaves, sourish blueberries, bayleaf, some natural iron. A refined candied sweetness opens the palate, very much like the old liquorice sticks I remember from when I was a child (and its always nice when a beer brings back long-forgotten memories), raisins, some dried banana, with a soft umami edge and a vague sourishness underneath; very soft carbo, oily and greasy mouthfeel but remaining very smooth and supple, with a slick caramel maltiness to it, nutty, becoming more chocolatey and coffeeish roasted bitter in the end but staying gentle; there is a very subtle amount of metallic effect as well, but feeling very natural for a stout and therefore not disturbing at all. Finish consists of persisting malt sweetness, a lot of liquorice both in taste and retronasally, and, all the way at the back, some peppery, leafy hops for balance. An almost medicinal liquorice flavour remains in the throat along with a long lasting, drying bittersweetness combining the sweet dark malts and the spicy hops. Still, it is still the liquorice which gets the last word here: even after swallowing, an ethereal, volatile but strong flavour of English liquorice candy remained for a long time. The description liquorice is often used for stouts and other dark beers and can be the result of fermentation, but in this case there is no way to get around it, this beer effectively uses (artisanal) liquorice and youll know it. Absolutely not recommended for those who hate this flavour, but for those who dont, this is an enjoyable beer, and it is a clever thought putting this particular spice in what is basically a medium dry stout. Interesting and not lacking in complexity, but admittedly the liquorice is all over the place.

Bottle 33cl, a dark beer with low head. Nose is dark chocolate, vegetable and chili like notes. Aroma is on smooth dark chocolate, toffee, licorice wood, kind of chili or pepper notes, coffee beans, quite sweet. Long licorice wood notes on aftertaste, pleasant beer.
