330 mL custom bottle with an indecipherable best-by date, and "brewed with extra hops and roasted barley." It pours opaque black, fairly clear, with a few ruby highlights, and is topped with a rocky, two finger, dark tan head that retains a thin cap and leaves nice lacing. Roasty and very earthy in the nose, with a touch of hops. It has a rich, very complex flavor - quite roasted, with coffee, smoky/ashy malts, black- and blueberries, dark cherries, apples, leather and licorice melding with green, resinous hops that contribute pine and a strong bitter finish. It has a coating and dry, almost tingly body, with an unfiltered, fullish feel, and, even though it is so very full of flavor, remains approachable and easy to drink. Delicious and worth seeking out; when I am reaching for Guinness in the future, this is what I will grab.
