3.53/5  rDev -4.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a plastic cup at the Mal's St Paddy's Day parade

A: Tar black with a huge tan head that lingered

S: Malts, licorice, chocolate.

T: Follows the nose. Just as stout as I recall from years past. A burnt, malty/coffee concoction that begs to be dummed down with a weaker lager or ale. Bitter finish. Full bodied. A manly, leprechaun-ass-kicking brew.

M: medium with medium to heavy carbonation.

O: So I'm a wimp. Guiness Extra Stout is just too much for my palate. So I'm adding a little Smithwick's to smooth it out. It worked.

A proper Guinness is never wrong at any given moment, and the bottled version of this I got on my local pub was very good.

I think that this is a bit tastier than the regular Guinness Draught 4,2 ABV. But still I would very much like to try this on tap and not in a bottle.
