Bottle. Pours a deep brown, nearly black with slightly off white head. Aroma is a slightly fruity roast caramel. The flavor is very light roast caramel. Not bad for a brew that is trying to appeal to the "masses", but not very good, regular guiness stout much better!!

It’s nothing special. Pours a dark brown, taste is malty yet bland. Nothing to truly distinguish this beer from the rest. I’d take a Guinness stout over this any day.

Pours a deep brown with off white head. Nose and taste are more blah than I had hope & expected. I was expecting there to be a deeper malt and possibly roasty back taste. Not a beer I would buy again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: MAY 27, 2012 Pretty much what I expected. It tastes like Extra stout light with a little more of an earthy flavor. Not a bad beer but not a great one either

Very good beer, a little bitter, but not bad coming from guinness. Caramel, roasty, woody, smoke, vanilla

From a bottle. Aroma is roasty but comes across mild and thin. Taste follows that theme - a surprisingly well-balanced taste comes in with roasted malts and a little sugar sweetness, but the taste leaves almost instantly and makes it feel thin and bland. It was enjoyable, but you had to keep going back frequently to keep any ongoing taste. Maybe that’s the intent?

Black in color with little white head. Smells and tastes like black liquorish. Has a slightly similar end flavor of a Guinness Stout, but not as good as that.

Nothing special about this...tastes like a golden lager with a touch of dark malts on the finish. Some sweet fruity and grainy aromas and flavours, otherwise nothing special.
