Three finger tan head from a solid pour. Jet black brew. Decent retention and fluffy lacing that slides down the glass.
Roasted chocolate malt aroma, just a hint of cherry or grape tartness. Wheat, and milk or cream.
There's a definite tartness and it is far more sour than I expected. Coffee does not hit until the midtongue, and the cocoa is on the back end only. Not the flavor profile that I expected, and not one that is great.
Slightly chewy, but a little bit light for the style. Overall medium mouthfeel. No hint of alcohol. No sting, and no bite.
I'm very disappointed. This is simply a mediocre beer. It's not bad, but I feel the tartness does not work. Further, it's not a good stout by itself. Not terrible, but I recommend you skip this one.
