3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: MAY 5, 2012 Thinly black beer with a beige head. Brown sugar, light roasted malts, a hint of fruit cake, and a whisper of caramel make up the aroma. It would be great, but itís rather weak and diluted. The body is thin. The taste is bitter, with a dry finish and a pleasant but weak aftertaste of brown sugar. Pleasant, inoffensive, and manages to keep me from boredom.

Thereís basically no discernible reason to crank the lid off of one of these beers, but if you do, expect a thin, effervescent mouthfeel and some pulsating coffee undertones. The flavor isnít going to tear your taste buds apart, but itís a pleasant diversion and a decent lager.

Bottle. Black color. Tan head. Weak nose of malt and coffee. Flavor of toasty malts and coffee, but very weak and watery. Not the best black lager. Not as good as I expect from Guinness.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
A- Metal, roasty, coffee.
A- Black color, dark liquid, tan head.
T- Licorice, roasted cereal, spiced.
P- Medium body, average texture, medium carbonation, boring finish.
O- Tastes like a Guinness Draught but with an obvious lager feel. Definitely does not look as great as a Guinness but itís not a bad beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Comes off as carbonated Guinness to me at first. If Guinness was a lager this is what it would taste like. Its got carbonation now, its a little less roasty, but its still got the milky creamy easy to drink goodness of guinness. I like it and I could drink it heavily all night without a problem I think. But it is pretty overpriced for what it is..Kinda like Guinness.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle. Pours a very dark mahogany black with a thin tan head. Bread and hay in then ose, but in all honesty there isnít much of an aroma. OK mouthfeel, flavor of raost malt, some hops. I think itís a mindset thing - I expect to taste a stout. Go figure. Overall, a little bit disappointing.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a deep black with a nice light tan head. Aromas of roasted malts, bitter chocolate, and coffee. Flavor is much of the same and damn drinkable. A bit of earthy hops in the finish and lingering roastyness. I like this one alot and will have again. I was told this was 7.5% abv before and I guess I was miss informed a bit......nice overall

Unimpressive. No need for this beer other than to sell Guinness to people afraid of stouts.
