3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From the 11.2 fl. oz. bottle stamped 05:40-L2245G00002. It pours mahogany brown with an off-white head that lingers for the entire session. The aroma has the infamous Guinness dark malt scent but toned down a little and a nutty note. The body is creamy and just below medium. The taste has a slight sweetness at first and then an explosive acidic bitterness on the tail end. A lot like the Foreign Stout with a slight punch. Nothing extraordinary about it but relatively easy to drink.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a deep caramel color with a couple fingers of eggshell foam. Aromas are pure maltiness with an ever so slight cardboard stale hop presence. On the palate its alot of the same, nothing overly off putting just a stale malty beer without any great flavors. Touch of bitterness on the finish cleans up the caramel sweetness.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a clear dark nut brown with a ruby hue and minimal head. Aroma of coffee, vanilla and christmas spices. Taste is light bitter. Coffee, spices abd a little vanilla. Medium bodied with a thin texture. Lively carbonation and a long finish. Overall, not bad. Nothing to seek out but drinkable.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Irish session stuff through and through. Though really more of a Brit bitter actually. Reddish brown, malts dominate nose and taste, a bit of caramel malt helps. Okay.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
11.2oz bottle - pours clear and dark amber with offwhite head and great lacing. Nose is floral hops. Flavor adds generic maltiness. Modately bitter with light sweetness. Decent overall but quite generic. I picture myself drinking this while eating fried fish and chips while halfheartedly caring about a rugby team on tv, as long as the price is right.

Guinness really ought to brew a batch of every beer style. Their approach to beer making is unrivaled, unmatched, unmistakably unique.
