Not much of a head, quickly fading.

Slight roast, decent aroma of dark cacao.

Strong notes of chocolate and coffee, with a light roast behind. Bit of a cola flavor, with a similarly light and fizzy mouthfeel. Slightly metallic. Fair bit of cardboard and oxidation as it warms.

Not a bad coffee chocolate stout, but it could use a much smoother mouthfeel and some refinement in the traditional stout profile.

Pours a brown color with tan head. Charred cocoa, charred malt on the nose; follows onto the palate. Very bitter and off-putting.

3/5  rDev -13.8%

Appearance: Nice thick tan head, opaque and dark.
Smell: Coco, coffee, lactic notes, licorice and malt.
Taste: Coco, lactic acid, coffee and a slight smokiness. Sweet finish.
Mouthfeel: Strangely powdery yet watery.
Overall: I think there has likely been some improvement with the recipe on this since others reviewed this one. Not great but inoffensive.
