Well carbonated and black in color...so far we have Guinness without the nitro effect.
Dark roast and lighter grains make up the nose.
The taste is rather surprising. There's a lot more flavor than I expected given how lack luster their flagship is. Roasted malts, hints coffee backed by caramel and maybe even toffee malts and a strange hop offering. Far more flavorful than expected, but please don't expect a lot here. It isn't powerful and frankly I'm not sure these flavors were made to go together.
A decent light lager but I'm not sure when or why someone would go for this particular one.
