I know several who loved the smooth Guinness Black Lager, I am very disappointed the Black Lager has been discontinued in Colorado, we feel it wasn't on the market long enough to gain traction. At our house we will not be buying the dainty Guinness Blonde brew.

As I stated earlier we very much miss the Guinness Black Lager, with the holidays near, we are looking for a different brand to replace the Guinness Black Lager. Here in Fort Collins, Colorado I've put the word out to many of our Craft Breweries are looking for a smooth Black Euro-Lager.

Excellent beer - Full bodied and sessionable. Everything you could ask for in a beer. -0.05/5 because some other Schwarzbiers are better, in my opinion, though this is a go-to beer for me.

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.

Extremely smooth. Great beer and no bad after taste. First time Guinness drinker here. Can't wait to try more Guinness.

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.
