It turned out malty and delicious with flavors of chocolate and licorice.

How does the bitterness match up? It seems kind of like a dark IPA without the late/dry hops! I'm quite keen to give it a try!

I don't remember the bitterness as it's been a while, but I did age it for quite a while (~ 1/2 a year before the comment). This would mellow a lot of the bitterness and hoppiness.
