4.03/5  rDev +1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Black as midnight, weak legs, head dissipates quickliy

S: Roasted malt, dark caramal, halfway to soy sauce but not there so still good

T: roasted malt, slight coffee, slight astringency/dryness at the end. You can taste the licorice halfway through your taste. I'm not too familiar with black licorice but it adds a nice flavor to the beer. moderate bitterness throughout

M: light body, light creaminess

O: Very nice stout which, while not medium or heavy bodied and super creamy is still creamy enough and thick enough that it's not a porter and coupled with the licorice, really add another layer of character to the beer. Worth trying and drinking more of.
