According to a press release the Guinness family is launching “Black Lager” nationwide this September;

“This new beer perfectly combines the refreshing taste of lager with the unique character and flavor of GUINNESS and marks an exciting new addition to the Guinness family.

The refreshing and flavorful taste is locked in by the bespoke amber Guinness bottle. The contemporary packaging design combines premium, detailed silver and blue color with hallmark symbols of Guinness’ brewing provenance and heritage.  The lager should be chilled and enjoyed responsibly straight from the bottle.”

As a lover if Guinness as is, I will be a stanch supporter of my local liquor store when they stock the shelves with this bad boy.
