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.

Bottle from Waitrose. Jet black, off white head, lovely malt taste and toffee sweetness, doesn’t taste like 6%. Would love to get it on draft.

brandy cools (27) - antwerp, BELGIUM - NOV 17, 2017
Coffee with a little milk and malt in the aroma. Malt-bitterness, coffee and very pure chocolate in the taste. It's a black beer with very little head. Medium body, little carbonation and coffee-bitter finish. It was more than i expected . Not bad.

macca147 (496) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - NOV 11, 2017
Pint bottle. Pours an ink black with a eggshell/beige head. Aroma: roasted malt, dark chocolate, cream, mild coffee and brown sugar flavours. Taste: roasted malt, bitter cocoa, dried fruits, toffee flavours. Medium bodied, a bit more depth than a standard porter. Moderate carbonation. Mild sweetness followed by mild bitterness at the back end of the palate. A bit different to what I usually expect from a porter, but nevertheless quite tasty. Enjoyed this a lot more than I expected to.

Benters (75) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 7, 2017
Pours dark brown with thin tan head. Aromas of roasted malts, chocolate, some coffee, vanilla and slight smokiness. Taste is smooth, rich, a nice blend of toffee and raisin-like fruitiness, chocolate, some coffee...all backed by a firm hop bitterness. Enjoyable beer.

3.5
adamnowek (3287) - Brussels, BELGIUM - NOV 6, 2017
Bottle from Albert Heijn in Wemmel. Jet black. Cream-coloured head. Strong aroma of malt and milk chocolate. Taste is plenty of chocolate with a good amount of malt. Hoppy kick and a high level of carbonation.

3.3
dorain (647) - Berlin, GERMANY - NOV 6, 2017
Aus der Flasche am 2016-05 getrunken. Na geht doch Guinness! Hier trifft Schokoriegel auf Espresso und das auch noch recht vollmundig ung richtig gut abgestimmt. Lecker!
