3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cant believe I’ve not rated this one yet. This one is imported from Ireland and is a month past its "best by" date. Bottle pours a dark brown with a full and dense light tan head. Light roasted aroma with tootsie roll and milk chocolate. More bitter roasted flavor but with plenty of sweet cola and chocolate again. Slight metallic trailer at the very end and some residual smokey bitter. Hides the 7.5% pretty well.

FTA. This is a reminder to self not to purchase it over and over again. Only Guinness I can drink is the one that comes form tap in at least England. All others are equal to Corona and other similar trademark names.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled in Ireland with Linh, Scarlett and family. Pours a deep blackish brown body with thick tan head. Mouthfeel is medium with notes similar to other Guinness variants - light cocoa, soft roast and faint lactose/milk character. This seemed to have a bit more sweetness behind it.

Bottle at Brussels. Interesting but kinda old school but I guess that should be expected with an old classic. Full bodied, creamy roast coffee and barley.
