3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a thin black. The flavor is of roasted malt, kind of like a stout yet has a lager like quality to it. Not overly carbonated. Decent overall.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Taste lightly tangy/acrid but not sour, some cigarette ash in with faint roast, faint hint of chocolate, relatively dry with low bitterness. Medium-full body. Well, they made this one easy, Iíll take the regular Guinness instead ten times out of ten.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Not bad, but certainly nothing special... Beautiful BLACK, non-transparent color with a light muddy colored head. Malty, but light and thin. Pretty typical for the style I suppose, but I have had better Schwarzbier.

A bit disappointed with Guinness as there is nothing that really stands out. It is a middle road though for Lager fans wanting to try something darker.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dark, semi-opaque body with ample bubbly tan head. Aromas of grass, corn, roasted barley (in that order). Flavour is weak compared to its stoutly homologue but still bears some likeness. Weak, dilute MF. Iíd rename this "Budweiser, Dark Roast".

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
bottled pours black with large tan head. aromas of basement, hay and tin. flavors are of malt. the beer is medium sour with a little bitterness from the roasting. medium to light body, with a thin bitter/astringent tongue feel. this lasts for a while on the palate, which is really not pleasing. they should have stayed with what they do best.

Bottle, pours opaque black w/ foamy off-white head, aroma is even mix of roasted malt, adjunct, and dishwater, thin and watery w/ only the lightest roast accent on finish, unimpressive

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark but not thick. Smooth and light enough to drink all the time. Not a bad all around beer.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours almost black with a little tannish head. Aroma has some dark roasted, almost burnt smelling malts, and some chocolate lingering in there. Tastes has some chocolate notes and some slight hop bitterness, with a watery mouthfeel afterwards. Rather thin for the most part, but still very drinkable.
