If you were in a pub sometime between 1821 and 1970, chances are this is the Guinness you would have been drinking. Originally brewed as the XX version of our Porter, it’s hoppy, roasty, and crisp, with a bittersweet finish.

The original drink is always the best. I have been drinking this for a number of years and I dont intend to stop. Absolutely gorgeous taste when freezing cold, if bought in bottles, its best to leave them in the fridge overnight to get the best temp. Or bung it into the freezer for about 30 minutes, whichever you prefer. :)

The best stout the world has seen. Always the best in a pint at the pub in IRL. Smooth and creamy as it should be.

I have never had this as it is not available in the USA. Just had it in England, and it is superb. The best. Better than the Canadian version. Perfectly balanced.
