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.

Poured into a Lager Glass. Pours really dark brown almost black. Nice frothy head with a little lacing on the glass. aroma is pleasant, roasted malts and almost a citrusy smell too. Flavour is clean and finishes with the roasty notes. Palate is thin and watery, but thatís the point of a lager. Carbonation is lively on the tongue. Overall one of the better Black Lagers Iíve tried.

Bottle: at home: pours dark, dark brown with a thick foamy tan head. It smells like roasty, ashy chocolate. Its flavor is sharp chocolaty malt. The lively carbonation is a fun departure from the traditional Guinness. Itís good, but I prefer itís grandfather... Guinness draught.

Guinness Black Lager is a black beer with a waxy, turbanado colored foam that has pretty nice lacing and retention. The aroma is very muted and of wet cardboard. Thereís a touch of roast and maybe spice in the nose. Itís medium-light bodied; fluffy and crisp. Itís lightly flavored from a dark malt twang at the first taste to a lightly bitter finish of coffee and medicine. This stuff just goes down like water. Itís a very simple, refreshing black lager.

From the bottle poured a dark brown brew with a thin light brown head that disipated quickly. not a lot of aroma, but a little roasty malt did I detect. Medium mouth feel and over all not bad, but not the reall deal.

We had this beer at the 2013 Tops of the Hops in Biloxi, MS. Wow! It was good. Itís lighter than Guinness, which meant that even Rob liked it.

I want to start by saying that I am a huge stout fan and I still really loved this beer even if its a lager tribute to one.
It might have a prominent roasted aroma to it, it might not have the most pronounced head, it might not even be that lively on the palate.
However, this is a smooth easy going beer with plenty of flavor and an interesting take on a lager.

This is my go-to dark beer for every day. Smooth taste, yet more complex than other similarly priced beers. Goes well with medium to heavy flavored meals.

Roasted barley, very burnt, smokeish malt taste. Looks extremely good, making the expectations a bit hard to reach. The palate has a bit of the classic Guinness creaminess. Tastes mostly of a good burnt malt and little else. Grows on you.
