Bottling the Licorice Stout

Bottling the licorice stoutI just got around to bottling the licorice stout today. I primed with 2 ounces of corn sugar in approximately 2.5 gallons of beer. The final gravity was 1.014 giving it an alcohol content of 6.26, which was higher than I expected. I tasted a bit of the beer before I bottled it and it really came together in terms of complexity and mouthfeel. The anise flavoring just kind of mellowed out and tucked itself right into the rich roasted malts. I’m really excited to taste this stuff once it has conditioned.
