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.

There's good retention on the foamy brown head and a light chocolate and herbal aroma to this black stout. A nice chocolate flavor is quickly watered down with a light roasty, herbal finish. A light bittering linger lends itself to a thin feel and a light bite in the end.

While there is a good chocolate flavor here it's really lost in the thin, watery feel and taste to make this beer not really worth the effort.
