Guinness Black Lager ad features ‘Boardwalk Empire’ actor

October 16, 2012 By: mike Category: Video

Jack HustonRecognize the guy in this new 30-second spot for Guinness Black Lager?

It’s Jack Huston, the actor from “Boardwalk Empire” who plays Richard Harrow, the severely disfigured World War I vet turned gangster.

“Regular beer is kind of a friendly, bubbly color,” while Guinness Black Lager, “has more character, more style, more taste,” Huston declares in the ad.

“There’s just something about black.”

I’ve seen the beer on store shelves but haven’t tried it yet. Anybody give it a try?

  1. Its not that good. Its a dark beer without the Guinness. Its watered-down, fizzy brew that you would think came from Budweiser. If you want a real dark beer that lighter than Guinness Stout, go with Smithwick’s.

  4. Skip it, watered down. The Guinness Foreign Extra Stout is the only drinkable product they make.

  6. Its actually a great beer. You aren’t supposed to drink it thinking its Guiness stout. i dont drink Tank 7 thinking its supposed to taste just like blvd wheat just cuz they are made by the same company. Its anice crisp change and its one of my favorite beers, because I happen to like tons of beer and try not to be a snob about it! I definitely give it 2 thumbs up.

  9. Great beer. Strange to see them pushing such an aggressive ad campaign on espn, since the beer has been in stores for some time. The campaign works though. I saw the commercial, made the boardwalk connection, and bought a six pack that week. It’s similar to a Newcastle, but with darker notes and familiar guiness charicteristics. Give it a shot.
