3.63/5 rDev +2.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
11.2 oz bottle served in a pint glass
When poured this beer is pretty black but clear with ruby red/burgundy highlights and a nice foamy tan head. The smell is nice with some chocolate and roast malt but overall a bit on the thin side. This is a very dry stout with the majority of the taste comprised of black patent and a bit of chocolate malt. The mouthfeel is a bit prickly, it isn't as smooth as the nitro guinness which is to be expected but actually I like it more than regular Guinness but maybe not as much as the export stout. Drinkability is good you could definitely put away more of the originals than you could the 250 however I like the added complexity and enjoy this offering from Guinness.
