Presentation: 12 oz. brown long neck. Burgundy coloured label with a picture of a old New England Shipyard. Best Before Date clearly scored.
Appearance: Tar black with a creamy tiny bubbled tan head that retains.
Smell: Fruity and tangy roasted aromas with a fine floral hop nose.
Taste: Earthy roasted barley that is somewhat dry hits the mouth in the beginning then a rounded smoothness of grain, touches of dark chocolate and roasted husk hits in the middle. Nice touch of hop bitterness with a light but complex leaf flavour. Maltiness seems a bit thin. A fading roasted barley and coffee flavour lasts for a bit and let some burnt caramel in the end.
Notes: Forget American Guinness ... this is a far better stout, better when on tap as the bottle tasted too filtered to me.
Serving type: bottle
