Dark but not thick. Smooth and light enough to drink all the time. Not a bad all around beer. Dal9000 (639) - Ohio, USA - JAN 1, 2015
Pours blank with a chocolate foam. Molasses aroma. Sweet molasses malty flavor immediately on the tongue. The sweetness grows with each taste.

Aroma of roasted coffee, taste is roasted coffee, malty, mild alcohol, easy drinker. Stldsf1 (616) - Florida, USA - JUN 24, 2012
Roasted malts and light toffee. I really think the rating for this may be higher if it didn't say Guinness on the label. Not an awful black lagar

Bottle - free sample at distributor. Dark, but pretty clear. Roasty aroma. Flavor is pretty bland. A bit like a US mass market lager with a bit of roastiness added.

Ar: Light malt, a bit of moss, and coffee.
Ap: Very dark brown, red highlights - medium light tan head with big bubbles - moderate retention.
T: Roast and a touch of coffee up front - some earthiness with light bitterness - quick, ashy finish.
P: Light bodied with medium-high carbonation - falls a bit thin on the palate.
O: Decent black lager - nothing special, pretty underwhelming. BierMeHoos (611) - Maryland, USA - SEP 23, 2014
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. ekoerper (599) - Iowa, USA - OCT 29, 2011
Aroma: subtle roast and coffee, very faint. Pours black, fizzy off-white head dissipates quickly and leaves some thin lacing. Flavor has some nice chocolate and roast, coffee and earthy notes. Body is a bit thin, medium carbonation. mrjaxson (597) - .08 Junction, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 26, 2013
Momma says always stress the positive, so I’ll say that Black Lager looks good. After that, well, (sorry mom) the roasted grain aroma is sharp and unpleasant, the beer is thin, and the finish leaves an unpleasant bitterness. thechandler (593) - Charleston, West Virginia, USA - SEP 22, 2012
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.
