look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

This is a decent strong stout, a bit simple and devoid of complexity, especially for being as strong and heavy as it is.

Black, it has a big brown head.

Aroma is chocolate, hint of coffee, wet earth and bark, hint of winy prunes. Aroma is rich, full, nice, soft.

Taste is full and strong but simple and lacking in complexity. It is creamy, bittersweet, rich chocolate with hint of coffee, brandied prunes and wet singed leaves. It has a lingering burnt-leaf bitterness at finish. There is really nothing else. Compared to Guinness Foreign Extra Stout, for example that beer is far more complex and interesting and well-rounded than this on comparable (in fact slightly lower) abv. This has strong roasty-chocolatey elements but really nothing else.
