harrisoni (17685) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 6, 2016
UPDATED: MAY 6, 2016 Bottle at the brewery tap in Bamberg. made with liquorice near Bamberg apparently. black beer lasting tan head. mostly chocolate on the aroma though. hot chocolate but some roast too. yes rich liquorice in the mouth with more chocolate. dry finish. its delightful. almost like a chocolate liquorice aperatif. Liquorice is spicy. normally i would not like this style of beer but the liquorice is so real and so spicy and so intense its really sexy. like black stockings and suspenders on a shapely woman. not on me. obviously. really good. surprise of the day. a liquorice beer i like. i mean its intense spicy liquorice. wow.

bartlebier (3719) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - MAR 19, 2015
Inter festas ’15 [email protected] Abseits, Bamberg. Spicy, cinnamon-like Süßholz/liquorice is all over this brownish Dunkel/porter crossover, but in a tasty way, well tied in. Bit like a Glühwein&Rooibos-infused porterised Dunkel, never fuming with abv, quite smooth considering its earthy sweetness. - Having just been to one of Bamberg’s Süßholz butcher’s that same day to sample the unusual liquorice-smoked ham and sausage, I quite had my fill of this local delicacy and would rather settle for beechwood-smoked Schlenkerla any time.

Bottle 500ml. w. swing top @ The Danish Summer Gathering, TFODRBSG12, Ulfborg.

Clear dark brown colour with a small to average, fizzy, fair lacing, mostly diminishing, off-white head. Aroma is moderate to heavy malty, roasted, dusty coffee, wood, sweet wood. Flavour is moderate to heavy sweet and light to moderate bitter with a long duration, chocolate, sweet wood, coffee - mocha, cacao - vanilla notes. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft to flat. Very good and well balanced ;-) [20120818]
