Dark brown body with some attractive ruby red highlights at the bottom of the glass. Decent if somewhat small tan head, and a little lacing but not very significant.
Very thin body and a weak mouthfeel.
Aroma is farily non-descript with a little bit of chocolate.
Taste has some chocolate notes, but it is dry like cocoa powder rather than silky like a creamy chocolate. Dry finish. Lack of roasted flavors is distinct.
Not at all what I am looking for in a stout. Lack of body, lack of smoothness and not much flavor. Drinks more like a bad Porter.
