The color was gold with a tiny bit of green.

Ahhh, the louche. It happened so fast that it wasn't enjoyable. Very thick and no opalescence.

Aroma wasn't unpleasant but just different.

The flavor started like the louche. First taste was very nice but was quickly taken over by the bitterness and anise

The finish was long and bitter. The tongue/mouth numbing made me think it was all star anise and slight green anise if any.

Overall it is a drink that you have to be in the mood to drink. I wouldn't offer it to an absinthe beginner. Sugar couldn't hide the bitterness but it may sweeten it. I'll let it set awhile and try it in a few months. It just isn't something I'd suggest unless you want an inexpensive absinthe.
