Pours a dark brown with a light thin tan head. Aroma is faint, bread, barley. Flavor is a little bit roasty, nutty, with a flutter of sweetness. Not bad.

robiannelli (591) - West Deptford, New Jersey, USA - NOV 3, 2011
12oz bottle. Aromas of barley malts some roasty notes and a bit of chocolate. Flavor is bitter with the usual Guinness taste only watery and malty. Body is dissapointing and finish is quick. Feels like a Guinness knock off

From a bottle. Black pour with a very thin head. Sweet malt aroma. Sweet on the palette and all around just ok. Not a fan just kind of blah.

Pours dark, like a Guinness. Aroma sort of smelly like a Guinness and a lager mix. Taste? Well, Guinness and lager mix. It's what it is. Lagers don't rate high, neither does this really. I got a free Guinness bottle opener when I bought it tho! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPad

HopTsing (573) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - MAR 21, 2012
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.

Pours blank with a chocolate foam. Molasses aroma. Sweet molasses malty flavor immediately on the tongue. The sweetness grows with each taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

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