4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours cloudy very dark brown with creamy, stable light tan head. Clear aroma of malt, caramel, nuts, and chocolate, with touches of coffee. Bitterish, roasty onset, complemented by sweet notes of chocolate and caramel malt. Touches of coffee beans. Roasty aftertaste with sweetish hints. Discreet but warming alcohol presence. Well-balanced and very enjoyable.

Sort of an improved version of the regular St. James’s Gate brew. Darker, sweeter and stronger, it’s really a much nicer beer. Guinness with some Belgian fine-tuning, for which we should be thankful to the people at Athony Martin’s. And that label is a design classic, of course.

Bottle from archer road beer stop, sheffield. Dark opaque red with nice tan head. Quite fruity with dry malty finish. A bit sour and nicely dry and bitter, has the Guinness character. Full bodied. Good stuff.
