Not very dark, flavorless like Guiness.

Either I had a bad draft or this tastes like water. Not a ton of flavor, but it's drinkable.

Some dude put it best: "Clear amber body with a wonderfully creamy tan head. Roasted malt nose with similar flavors. Starts sweet, creamy smooth middle & slightly bitter finish. Balanced & delicious."

I haven't had this is almost10 years, but I remember it was fantastic back then. Just had it again, 11 years later and it is still a solid beer. Nice and creamy.

Excellent head, creamy and smooth. Not as dark as Guinness, but just as tastey

Similar in flavor to Guinness but with less coffee notes, and less of a creamy flavor and mouthfeel.
