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.
