Decent beer. Black with small head. Not the greatest Guinness ever. Would drink again.

From a bottle. Black pour with a very thin head. Sweet malt aroma. Sweet on the palette and all around just ok. Not a fan just kind of blah.

Black as the name implies. Roasty aroma, a little coffee. Flavor, same with a little chocolate. Good drinkability, okay.

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.

Pours black with a small beige head that leaves a little lacing. Nice Roasted malt aroma. Initial drink has some black malt bitterness. Thin Body with a dry finish. Not a big fan of black Lagers but this one is above average.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Black w/little brown @ bottom. 2-3 finger head fades. Leaves little laceing. Smells like Guinness & a BAD lager. Taste:Barley flakes,roastedness, sour(ish), chocolate, & lager taste. It was good but be even better if it had a stout taste over the lager taste but the bottle I had, had a date that passed when I had it but didnít say if it was best b4 or not. The lager part I found the worst part.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
I did not care one bit for this brew. Something sort of "off"/bitter in the aftertaste that was just a downer. Aromas were weak as well as the flavors. Very thin and watery in texture. Only upside was the excellent lacing on the glass (but who wants to pay for that?!).

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.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A bit watery, and not enough roasted malts for my tastes . A "Schwarzbier-lite" if you ask me. But I should have expected that after seeing the words "COLD BREWED" in huge letters on the label. An ok session beer, but nothing to write home about.
