Today, 4 September 2014, GUINNESS announces the release of two brand new beers - GUINNESS DUBLIN PORTER and GUINNESS WEST INDIES PORTER. Inspired by authentic recipes, whose origins lie in the historic GUINNESS’ brewers’ diaries from the late 1700s and early 1800s, the new beers will be available in selected pubs and retailers from mid-September.

GUINNESS WEST INDIES PORTER is based on an 1801 diary entry for the first GUINNESS purposely brewed to maintain its freshness, on long sea voyages to the Caribbean and beyond. To guarantee the best quality upon arrival, GUINNESS brewers made a porter with more hops and a higher gravity. With their distinctive tastes, these new porters will offer beer lovers in Ireland and the UK something different and a fresh take on what’s been enjoyed for centuries.

Ok, at lest this is a real irish one, not like the fake guinness brewed in latrobe at the old rolling rock plant, heheh. Smell is mildly roasty. First taste is aged porter or something, not quite baltic but fer sher quite strong. This big black beer gives you a cat lick mick of a kick. Decent co2 and the aged old britty stiffy upper feel keeps this a lickin. Gets a little better in the middle. Finish is a wic mukker I say. Not bad, but it could be a little more civilized.

3.2
julesxxl (533) - Cholet, FRANCE - JAN 16, 2018
UPDATED: FEB 8, 2018 (plus de caractère que la dublin porter, moins fumée, plus forte, plus amère, plus ronde, plus équilibrée)

2.5
HuskerTan (2470) - Ravenna, Nebraska, USA - JAN 15, 2018
Bottle. A- Malty, peat, blood, rust A- Black color, black liquid, light brown head. T- Malty, cocoa, watery. P- Medium body, thin body, flat carbonation, boring finish. O- Had a best buy date that I well passed yet says it was made for the long trips oversees. Seems a bit hypocritical. Not my favorite porter by any stretch. Lots of malt, iron/metallic flavor and thin bodied.

3.6
anstei (2832) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - JAN 15, 2018
Bottle. Pours black with a dense tall head. Aroma is some chocolate, quite some grassy hops, but this head kills basically any nose Body is medium, quite sweet with a roasted and only a lightly burnt bitterness, chocolate, dense, silky and smooth. Sweetish malty chalky palate. Highly drinkable, good!

3.3

Geruch sehr schwach, Kaffee, Röstaromen, Erde. Geschmack sehr intensiv, röstig, mit Kaffee, Getreide, im Nachgeschmack auch nasser Beton und Asche.
