Served in a Guinness proper pint glass

A - This beer is about as dark as Guinness stout. I was expecting it to look more like a bock. There is no light coming through. It is the darkest lager I have had. It is topped with an inch of tan head.

S - It smells like roasted malt with whiffs of cocoa.

T - There is some roasted malt flavor, not a lot, just some. It has a clean finish.

M - Medium. It is hefty for a lager.

O - It tastes like Guinness light. I think I may prefer it to Guinness on tap. On tap it tends to fill me up. This is easier to quaff. I am pleasantly surprised by this one.
