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.

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.

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

I MUST have a bad bottle. This stuff canít be that bad. Strong aroma of septic. Taste of boiled leaves and fermented grass. borderline drain-pour. Why would Guinness make something this bad?

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

Awkward aroma with an attractive black pour, balanced but simple taste and decent mouthfeel.

Momma says always stress the positive, so Iíll 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.

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
