Poured into a tulip from a 16oz can. Dark brownish appearance with 1" head. Slight roast on the nose. Very slight cacao in the taste and no other of the adjuncts. Very thin mouthfeel. Overall not impressed with this stout considering the description

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.
