As the name suggests, it's a bit of a darker spin on Guinness stout. Pour yields a gentle head. The aroma is intoxicating. The roasted barley absolutely dances off the beer. Like the stout, it seems much darker and heavier than it actually is. The malt is balanced very nicely. So full of flavor, without feeling too overpowering.

Pours a fantastic black color with wonderful head and some very nice lacing. Excellent scent with a cool and sweet maltiness, great toastiness scents, and hints of chocolate. Fantastic flavors, with a great smooth and sweet malt with excellent undertoned yet noticable chocolate bites, and slight coffee hints; slight earthy hop finish. Extremely smooth, it goes down a treat.

If you know what a black lager is, and what characteristics it is supposed to have, this is pretty much a perfect representation.

A black lager is supposed to be lighter in mouthfeel (high drinkability and refreshing), with a stout-like sweet, roasted-malt taste. This is what Guinness's black lager is. It is a little light in color for a black lager, but that is the only deficiency. It has a very not heavy mouthfeel (very different than Guinness stouts, as it should be). It has a very strong roasted malt taste with nodes of sweetness from the converted starches.

If you like black lager, drink this.
