12 ounce bottle into a pint glass.
A: Pours a nice ¼ inch head the color of milky coffee. Body is a dense dark brown/black. Lacing fades quickly as you drink.
S: Smells a bit like Guinness Stout with the aroma of sweet malts. Not a terribly strong aroma, but once you get your nose in there, it comes out the other end in an Irish pub.
T: Initially, it’s very reminiscent of the Stout, but as you get into the beer, you notice the real differences here. A much crisper taste with almost a hint of cola. A nice, round flavor; very light. The same nice, toasty malts you’ve come to know and love. Warms up a bit on the aftertaste with just a hint of a bite.
MF: Fairly strong carbonation is the first thing I noticed. Light, crisp, goes down very easy. Body could definitely stand to be a little more robust, though; almost borders on watery texture.
D: Hate to keep comparing it to Guinness Stout, but it’s hard not to. I’ve always been a fan of black lagers, and this delivers on expectations. It’s a dark lager that tastes like Guinness. A little easier drinking if less satisfying take on the original. That said, very drinkable. Again, light, but with a nice flavor.
