Awkward aroma with an attractive black pour, balanced but simple taste and decent mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

HopTsing (463) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - MAR 21, 2012
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.

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.

mcjay (463) - Neenah, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 9, 2011
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

exeter (462) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 31, 2014
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.

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

jhgrantjr (456) - Tennessee, USA - FEB 17, 2013
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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bork (452) - Rosewood, Georgia, USA - AUG 5, 2014
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.

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.
