11.2 oz bottle 6/26/18 (200 Years of Stout In America Variety Pack Binny's-Montgomery)-42° in English Pint. Pours black with ruby tints and a small tan head. Aroma of roasted malt and chocolate. Taste of slight hops, roasted malt, and chocolate. This light bodied brew is well balanced and easy to drink.

Pours with nice big head and a very dark brown. Smells of tin and sweet barley. Flavour is fruity sweetness tempered by roasted barley. Medium finish, okay oiliness. Decent for a low budget supermarket beer, a bit better than some other variations I've had around the world.

UPDATED: JUL 1, 2018 Butelka 0,33 l. Barwa czarna, nieprzejrzysta. Piana bardzi jasno beżowa. W smaku delikatna kawa. Nawet gładkie.

very dark brown with an off-white head. aroma is a mature roast, slight metallic tinge. taste is coffee/burnt toast. heavy and thick body especially for the low alcohol. why is most guinness in the world sold as that garbage with nitrogen bubbles in it?

Fles gedeeld door Roelzie. Het is een donkerbruin bier met een dun beige schuim. Het heeft een gebrande moutige geur en smaak.

It was confusing finding this one as the label is different on the bottles sold in the USA
