Poured dark enough that I couldn't see through my pint glass. The head was about 1/2" of tan goodness and it liked to hang around.
I didn't detect any hops in scent or flavor. Just a bit of sweetness with molassus and roasted/chocolate malty smells & tastes. A bit thin on the body for a stout, I think.
I know of friends that don't like other Guinness beers to enjoy this beer. Definitely not as bold as I expected an anniversary beer to be, but very enjoyable. It could be we on the west side of the Pond have become use to breweries producing big beers for special occasions.
I wouldn't mind this becoming a regularly produced beer.
