4.1/5  rDev +0.7%

11.2 ounce brown bottle. Best before date 19:15 whatever that means.

A: Pours black with crimson edges under a lofty 2-finger thick mocha head which fades to a thin cap and leaves semi-rings and spots of lace.

N: Sweetly roasted malts, chocolate cake batter, faint vanilla, sherry-like note, wood, earthy.

T: Follows nose with minor heat noticed, bittersweet chocolate, faint char.

M: Full body and full carbonation. Rich, smooth, creamy chocolate and roasty finish.

O: Not the usual Guinness stout, this is way better.

Much much different than the Guinness Extra we all know and love. Smoother with a nice bite this is a superb stout
