DATE TASTED: August 1, 2013 ... GLASSWARE: Guinness pint... OCCASION: watching scrapbooking with Shan--sweet memories... APPEARANCE: velvet black body, dense and appreciable; thick brown head that laces beautifully, as a doily,, almost symmetrically around the glass... AROMA: nice lactic impact; hops are less profiled--oat, peat and sugars are prominent... PALATE: high and hard, warming and medium-bodied; full at the throat...TASTE: slightly chocolaty and pleasantly milky; unlike the draught, a hardened smoky finish that demands attention; hops are well-placed, coupling with the malts to present a substantial, complex stout... OVERALL: the less-requested Guinness again reminds me why the road less traveled in beer circles often makes the more rewarding difference...this beer delivers with a welcome heft and an ABV that belies its enjoyable sip. A shame this beer does not accompany the "three beers strong" mix pack--trade the Harp for this? In a heartbeat...
