I think this is a Schwarzbier rather than a Euro Dark Lager. I have reviewed it as such.
A: Extremely dark ruby, to the point of being black (but for the penlight shining through revealing the true ruby color). The head is a tan, three-finger froth, that fades to a thin layer with clumpy lacing.
S: Chocolate malt with toffee, caramel, and brown sugar.
T: Initial mild sweetness gives way to the roastiness in the mid-palate. The finish is dry and slightly bitter. There is a hint of the trademark Guinness sourness in the aftertaste.
M: Smooth and slightly creamy.
O: Taken as a Schwarzbier, this is pretty good.
Serving type: bottle
