174 calories per bottle at 5.8% ABV. Anticipated a nice dark beer and found this to be a nice choice, not far from a typical Guinness - however it's porter style instead of a dry stout which makes this slightly 2nd choice for me. The taste is very dark and robust with a slight bittersweet twang at the end. A fan of dark beer and this one is average in it's class and far from disappointing - would buy again.
