this black lager from guinness is pretty good. the color is black with a light tan head. the smell is nothing remarkable. theres a little hint of smoke and some nuttiness, but nothing really grabs you. i do like the taste its less potent than guinness draught. which makes it really drinkable. its like you get all the fashion of walking around with a black beer in your hand with out anyone knowing that its tame. guinness is a lot heavier than this you could drink several of these in one sitting. i dont know if this beer will catch on- i dont see die hard guinness drinkers likeing it- and i dont see bud drinkers picking it up but i think is pretty good.

poured from a ~15oz can into a pint glass.
A: Thick beige head that falls slowly and clings to the glass. Nice black color, clear and dark brown along the edges.
S: Bread, very light roast, a little earthy.
T: Smooth malty start, a surprisingly strong bitter kick which lingers. Pretty simple.
M: Light, smooth, creamy carbonation.
O: Nice clean black lager. Easy drinking with a light roasted character and smooth mouth.
Serving type: can
