330mL bottle poured into a pint glass.
A - Opaque black beer with one finger of dense, coffee and cream foam. The head settles down to a dense, creamy film and leaves behind plenty of lace.
S - Rather light - some dark, bready malt with a note of chocolate.
T - Black bread and chocolate with an acrid, roasty character. Roast is complemented by some spicy/herbal hop flavor and moderate bitterness. For the most part, there's a fine balance, but it does finish with a bit of char.
M - Light, watery body, somewhat overcarbonated.
D - While I think it's too roasty for the style, Guinness Black Lager is probably a decent introduction for the non-craft consumer. It's not something I'd buy for myself, but I'd recommend it as a potential crossover beer.

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
