Very excited to try this one. Thanks Riggsy for including this in my Secret Santa package.
Pours super dark, almost pitch black. Only a slight burgundy can be seen through the thin portions of the glass next to a light. A dense and very stable head rests on top and doesn't want to go away. Very uniform, filmy lacing is left behind.
Roasty notes accompanied by a slight hint of black liccorice. Slight caramel notes as well.
Nice dark malt and crystal flavors. Mild hop presence. Slight hints of fruit. The best tasting Guinness I've had.
Medium bodied and nicely carbonated. A slight pleasant bittering lingers in the upper palate and on the back of the tounge. Overall, extremely well balanced.
I've been a fan of Guinness for sometime now. The Draught is a good beer that is fairly easy to find in many restraunts that don't have a great beer selection... The Extra Stout has often been a saple for me at home... This one takes things to a new level. What a wonderfull offering!
