Poured into a Guinness pint glass. Pours dark brown with a massive tan head. The head dissipates, leaving plenty of sticky lacing on the glass. The aromas of dark roasted malt and dark chocolate dominate. There's also a hint of extra sweetness in the smell. The flavor is sweeter than the classic Guinness flavor with an extra punch from the alcohol. There are flavors of dark roasted malt, bitter chocolate, and molasses. This is a bolder version of the Guinness we've all enjoyed and the flavors are still well balanced. The alcohol is not overpowering. The mouthfeel is full bodied and creamy. Like the original, it is very drinkable. Overall, this is an excellent Irish stout and easily one of the best I've had from the style. If you like the regular Guinness, you could not go wrong trying this one.
