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.

Not much head and very little aroma. This beer has more of a coffee bitterness than the chocolate that I was expecting. If there was chocolate here, it seems to have been washed away by the somewhat watery taste. Ok beer, a little disappointed......
