Great beer. It has the flavor and aromas of Guinness stout without the fullness. Highly recommended!

No detectable hop flavor which is a plus for me. Nice thick head. Great aroma and caramel taste.

I have very little experience with darker beers so there isnít much to compare to, but this is one of my favorite beers. Itís not at all watery like some on here have suggested, itís just smooth. Best aftertaste Iíve ever gotten from beer.

Really good Dark Lager. Taste is very unique, just like traditional Guinness. Will be a new personal preference in times of trouble.

WOW! This stuff did not taste like I expected it to, it was wayyyy better than I had hoped. Goes down smooth just like any other lager, but has that oaky almost German quality to it.

I like this beer. Nice bite, not strong, but stays with you. Very light on the stomach, even with pasta. One can have as many as possible with this brand, and not get the "bloated belly" feeling.

Crisp, clean, and refreshing. Think American pilsner drinkability but with Guinness taste. A little chocolatey, but not overwhelming. Great for a summer drink. Chocolate, toast, roasty, earthy, woody

11.2oz in Drakeís pint glass. Near black with small fizzy ecru head. Very appetizing cornflakes and distant coffee aroma. Clean and tasty flavors of molasses, Munich malt, and sweet corn. Pleasant lager finish, generous carbonation. Excellent sessionable, interesting beer.
