11.2 fl oz bottle poured into a dimpled mug. Deep brown amber with a tiny tan head. Aroma is roasted malt and coffee. Flavor is odd. It has the distinctive Guinness roastiness with the typical wateriness of a pale lager. Mouthfeel is a bit thin with a generous amount of carbonation. Finish is bitter roast at first and fades to a biscuity lager yeast. It is pretty much exactly what one would expect of a lager from Guinness. This isn’t bad but I don’t think I’ll buy it again. If I want a Guinness, I’ll buy a Guinness.

Dark but not thick. Smooth and light enough to drink all the time. Not a bad all around beer.

Pours blank with a chocolate foam. Molasses aroma. Sweet molasses malty flavor immediately on the tongue. The sweetness grows with each taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Bottle. Pours a thin black. The flavor is of roasted malt, kind of like a stout yet has a lager like quality to it. Not overly carbonated. Decent overall.

Momma says always stress the positive, so I’ll say that Black Lager looks good. After that, well, (sorry mom) the roasted grain aroma is sharp and unpleasant, the beer is thin, and the finish leaves an unpleasant bitterness.

I MUST have a bad bottle. This stuff can’t be that bad. Strong aroma of septic. Taste of boiled leaves and fermented grass. borderline drain-pour. Why would Guinness make something this bad?

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...
