Guinness Black Lager is cold-brewed with roasted barley to deliver the refreshing taste of lager with the unique character of Guinness. Enjoy ice cold straight from the bottle.

Known as Premium Beer in Malaysia, where it is 5%.

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.

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

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?

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.

johnnyoski (445) - Macomb, Michigan, USA - DEC 28, 2011
Bottle. Near black color with a small off white head. Roasty aroma with hints of coffee. Roasted malt flavor with a slight chocolate sweetness. Well carbonated with a dry, watery texture. Easy drinking but void of much taste.

Bottle. Typical lager with malted taste. Roadted malts come through in aftertaste. Go to beer if no craft brew available.

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

caralkaline87 (435) - Washington DC, USA - OCT 16, 2011
Pours black with virtually no head. Nose is light and generic weak lager with a pinch of roastiness and skunk. Flavor has a bit of old hops, weak coffee, and herb but is generally limp. Cereal-like finish, but also very weak here as well. This is a boring, cheap black lager. Stick to Irish Drys, Guinness.
