2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pitch black with a foamy but quickly dissipating tan head. On top of the roasted malts the aroma has a mild woody hint and the flavor is relatively dry an bitter. The blackest lager around. Not bad

Bottle pours black small head. Tastes smells roasty malt caramel. A little hop. Pretty good not over the top enough to be one Iíd get again.

Whatíd they do here, roast up a Harp? I think I actually prefer Sam Adamís Black Lager to this Thin, boring and flat.

Bottle, first Schwarzbier. Aroma of barley. Taste is not strong, slightly malty, a hint of bitterness, but watery. not sure I like this type of beer. I certainly don't like this particular one.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured a good head that quickly died off. Dark brown in colour. Tastes of toasted malt and caramel. Very sweet. Mouth feel is thin. Like most Guinness beers, itís become a pale imitation of a real dark Lager. Kind of boring.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From the bottle poured a dark brown brew with a thin light brown head that disipated quickly. not a lot of aroma, but a little roasty malt did I detect. Medium mouth feel and over all not bad, but not the reall deal.

UPDATED: SEP 3, 2014 Virtually flavorless beer save some lightly sweet, fruity notes and a little bit of toast. Spritzy, watery and low on everything.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pitch black body with a thin, fizzy head. Bittersweet cocolate, coffee, and malt make up the rather light aroma. Nice smooth palate with bright carbonation. The flavor is overall fairly sweet. Malt, bitter chocolate, and tobacco. Thereís an interesting aftertaste like you just took a pull off a cigar. Very smooth and easy to drink. Schwarzbier is one of my favorite styles, and this one is a good example.

Bottle. Near black color with a small off white head. Roasty aroma with hints of coffee. Roasted malt flavor with a slight chocolate sweetness. Well carbonated with a dry, watery texture. Easy drinking but void of much taste.
