I've been reading about this beer for a long time here. It's finally available in the States. Let's see if the hype is justified.
Pours black with a big, big light brown head that leaves lots of sticky lace in my glass.
Aroma of Guinness: Roasted malt with a hint of smoke.
The taste is lightly smoky, with good, rich notes of roasted malt, coffee and chocolate backed by just a bit of tannin and dryness. Very nice.
Good body that's lighter than I expected, but not in a negative way.
Overall this is a fine beer, but I won't be having it again. Why? At $10 for four 11.2-ounce bottles, there are better beers out there for the same price or less.
Serving type: bottle
