What makes this beer different: It almost tastes like root beer!
Will I be drinking this again: I would if it were local.
10/6/2010: So just as a heads up before I get into the review of this beer… I HATE black licorice. Especially during Easter when you grab a handful of jelly beans thinking that the dark purple ones are grape, but no they are black licorice and ruin the whole mouthful.
Lots of chocolate in the nose, and a hint of black licorice. The flavor is not what I was expecting, mostly roasty chocolate, some dark fruit flavors, and only a little bit of Black Licorice flavor (thank god). Something about the flavor is really reminding me of a good root beer, can’t quite put my finger on what it is though. Alcohol is hidden very well which is a huge bonus. Smooth medium mouthfeel with nice carbonation. Very unique beer to say the least!
Picture of the day: Children are tasty.
