Kentucky Common Batch #1 - 1st tasting notes

Monday afternoon, I racked the Kentucky Common beer to secondary. The color was dark brown, and it smelled licorice-y kinda mediciney. It tasted fruity and a bit like licorice. I may have worried needlessly about how much anise I used. The fruity flavor may have been the result of the Belgian Ale yeast, I was hoping for a soured flavor; but, it may also be the result of the rather warm fermentation temperatures. Overall, it was okay, with not much trace of hop flavor.

More when I keg.
