Any ideas on how I can get that blackcurrant and liquorice flavour in a stout?
If you're lucky, you can get black currant flavor from Cluster hops. Some describe the flavor differently. AS for licorice, either use anise or get some brewer's licorice (unsweetened, I believe, and without the gelatin of normal candy licorice) and use that in the boil.
Would star annise in the boil help with that liquorice flavour?
Bramling X hops have a somewhat blackcurrant finish. Very old English Hop which is making a bit of a comeback.
