3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tasted from bottle into nucleated pint glass. It poured an opaque dark brown color with long-lasting creamy foam and lots of lace. Very nice appearance, likely from unmalted roasted grains. True-to-style Schwarzbier. Not sure if any kind of lager is authentically Irish, but it was indistinguishable from Guinness’ new Black Lager to me. Nice refreshing, roasty, tart dark lager with a nutty, dry finish. Good stuff.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours black with a thin ring of off-white head. Aroma of light caramel and chocolate with some faint herbal hops. Taste is light bitter and light sweet. Coffee, chocolate and faint sprucy hops. Medium bodied with a somewhat creamy texture. Lively carbonation and a longish finish. Overall, not bad. I could drink this again.

Poured into a perfect pint.
3.5 A: Black color. Two fingers of creamy tan head. Retention is good, but little lacing is left.
3.0 S: Dry, dusty roastiness. Very faint neutral maltiness. Clean. Otherwise, not much going on.
3.0 T: Light dry roastiness. Slightest touch of chocolate. Very faint malt sweetness. Again, not much going on.
3.5 M: Light to lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Lightly creamy.
3.0 D: Fairly tame schwarzbier, but not bad. Goes down quite easy.

Bottle. Had along with the Guinness Black Lager. Pours dark brown with a medium sized beige head. The aroma was fairly mild like the other, but had some light roast, mild coffee notes and a splash of cocoa. The flavor was much of the same with lighter roast, cocoa and coffee. Medium light body with nothing off noted.
