12 oz. bottle purchased at QFC in Mukilteo/Harbour Pointe, WA. Pours a VERY dark brown with a minimal tan colored head. Aroma: Roasted malt. Flavor: Same as the aroma, with a hint of coffee. Light bodied and delicious.

From a bottle. Good dark head and decent lacing. Unremarkable aroma, but smooth drink, not bitter at all, nice lager.

Bought at Krogers. Black. Med. creamy, beige head. Aroma: Roasted chocolate malts. Flavor: Roasted coffee, like a light Stout. Roasty, clean finish.

It’s nothing special. Pours a dark brown, taste is malty yet bland. Nothing to truly distinguish this beer from the rest. I’d take a Guinness stout over this any day.

jimmie65 (330) - Texas, USA - DEC 24, 2012
Attractive red-brown pour with a thin off-white head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, a little dark fruit, and vanilla. Very strong bitter, a little sourness. Rather biting, the only flavor that comes through is a little burnt coffee.

There’s 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 isn’t going to tear your taste buds apart, but it’s a pleasant diversion and a decent lager.

faint malty aroma..black stout like appearance with slightly off white head..taste is of a sweeter lager but not very powerful anyway mostly bland..tingly and watery on the palate overall their other products much preferred

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

VincentDamon (315) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - APR 1, 2013
De couleur noir très foncé et opaque, cette Guinness est dotée d’une mousse blanche standard. Nez peu houblonné, sucré, avec des notes subtiles de café et de malt grillé. En bouche, le goût amène une réminiscence de Guinness crémeuse, mais c’est plus subtil et moins goûteux. Les flaveurs de tourbe sont absentes. Le goût est léger, comme une lager déguisée en foncée. Goût de rousse, je dirais. Notes caramélisées toutefois très subtiles. Pas mauvais, mais pas extra non plus...

Rich, earthy brown pour. Trademark tan foamy Guinness head. Love the light toastiness of this! Very eady drinking.
