3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle. Poured a dark black color with a small tan head. Aroma was roasted malts, touch of coffee perhaps? Taste was bitter, dark roasted malts. It wasnít too bad actually, had no idea they made this until I found it in some random mid-west grocery store in August.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz bottle from Pickís poured into an English Pint. Pours a dark black with about 1 finger of frothy tan head. Aroma of black roasted malt and a slight hint of coffee. Taste is lightly bitter and very lightly sour. Slight hint of coffee. Light bodied with a thin yet creamy texture. Lively carbonation and not much of a finish. Overall, not too bad. Nothing I would seek out but I would definitely choose this over any BMC.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a thin, but deep dark brown with a medium beige lacing. Overall one dimensional and very similar to a BMC light beer.

Move over Bud Light. You have a toasty competitor.
Nice very dark brown to black pour. OK toasty aroma. Not much to this beer. Disappointed. Really this is an easily drinkable beer however I expected a much fuller body from the likes of Guinness in a black lager.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Smelled of wet dog. Taste reminiscent of a Spaten Lager, but dark. Drain-pour...and I donít do that very often.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bought at Sidneyís in Nawlins.. . Pours a deep brown/black .. medium headring, light lacing .. . slick light mouthfeel .. . not getting an awful lot out of the nose or palate- light roast and just a touch of sweet tar.. . no lay-ups .. . wow, a very very simple schwarz- i mean for guinness to make this, quite surprising on how one dimensional it is, that being said- i really liked and enjoyed it and can see maybe why they went with such a thin beer, like a guinness but not on nitro... . . Oh, donít worry about it. All the teachers lose their car on their first day.

12 ounce bottle from Wine Warehouse in Charlottesville, VA. Pours a clear deep dark red with a medium sized creamy head. Good head retention. Aroma of roasted malts and chocolate. The taste is roasted malts, raisin, chocolate. Thin-medium bodied. Decent.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
9/19/11. 12oz bottle into a glass (sorry, Guinness). Black pour, dark brown under the light, with a decent khaki head that sticks and laces a teensy bit. Very plain aroma with tannic graininess, a hint of cream, and a dash of sour. Very light flavor as well with tannic graininess, a bit of dark chocolate, and not much else. Very light body... itís yet another "dark" beer for Guinness to push on the common man so they think theyíre drinking the good stuff.
