I would have liked it more if the ginger was not so strong...

interesting beer.

looks thin on the pour, but definitely black enough.

smell: ginger presence is strong. not really sure what chicory root is, but i was smelling something, so I attribute it to that given that's what is advertised on the bottle. definitely chocolate in the nose as well

taste: trying too hard with the spices. was hoping for the taste to be like chocolate covered ginger, but it was a bit all over the place.

feel: way too thin and light to be a stout. feels much more like a spiced chocolate ale than anything else.

overall: would not get again. was splitting the bottle with a friend and let him polish it off after my initial pour.
