From a bottle into a stemmed stout glass.

Looks like a Stout, extremely dark, half a finger of head, dissipating quickly, but leaving some light lacing.

Not strong smelling, compared to the taste. Taste of bitter coffee, and unsweetened chocolate. I don't really like coffee. It's bold and extreme. I would never order a second one.

Mouth-feel is fine.
I don't really understand the ultra high rating.
