Pernod, pronounced Perno is an aniseed spirit. There might be a black variety of that now, but I am only familiar with the clear spirit.
Sorry if this useless to you query.

Sambuca is an italian liqueur with a soft aniseed flavour. It comes in clear and black. White Sambuca can be drunk with a coffee bean in the bottom.

The French drink 'Pastis' is aniseed flavour - usually mixed with water. Sorry I don't know any brand names.
