I'm surprised that Guinness Black Lager is rated as poorly as it is on the site. I thoroughly enjoy this beer, and if I'm ever out somewhere that has it, I almost always get it rather than whatever I was going to order before I saw it on the menu. This beer not only looks cool with it's dark appearance, but is surprisingly smooth considering how dark it is. It still packs a good lager flavor, though. Of course it's not traditional Guinness, but it's just as enjoyable to me.

As a huge fan of Guinness Draught, this Lager raises the bar.

It pours dark and appears heavy, but sits well after drinking. A very crisp, clean finish with plenty of taste.

A perfect beer for anyone who wants to drink the best.

Great job Guinness - keep it up.

A practically black look with a long lasting, tan colored head, very lacy leftovers.

A sweet and roastie malt aroma, light coffee, vanilla, toffee with chocolate coupled with a tasty sour-lager yeast that is just right.

A perfect balance of flavor's, it's one part quality euro lager and one part mild stout. It's guiness all the way. malty, dark wheat, sour yeast, dry earth and stout style dark malt flavor's all in wonderful balance.

The feel is is just right, snappy and dry lager body, light to medium with a smooth, creamy finish with plenty of jazz and kick left to make it VERY easy to quoff. amazingly easy Quoff.
