Coal Tar is an enemy in Dark Souls 2.
Black, many-tentacled monsters that, when a player approaches, will burst out from the black tar pools on the floor of Black Gulch. Upon breaching the surface, the Coal Tar can eat the player with a grab attack if they remain too close, or in one spot.
- The pools these creatures spawn from are easily set alight with a well-placed Pyromancy or fire arrow from afar. This technique will quickly burn the creatures to death without them leaving their hole at all.
- If you'd like to face the Coal Tar up close, it's best to approach a pool and quickly roll or backstep away. This will usually bait the monster's grab attack leaving it open for an easy punish.
- A fire infused weapon will help tremendously in dispatching these creatures, as attacks will also set their pools on fire.
Location: Black Gulch
- Large Titanite Shard

They look a LOT like facehuggers from Alien. Also kind of like that one big leech thing in Blighttown in Dark Souls 1.
These things are so easy to kill, but I still wish for them to burn in hell
