Re-review with fresher batch in London
Hard to beat Guinness appearance, with its down cascade of brown beige waves turning to a deep black color. Thick and consistent head that lingers forever.
Mild aroma of cream, vanilla, chocolate and toasted malts.
Similarly, creamy, sweet roasted malts and a touch of dark chocolate flavor. Hints of earthy and herbal hops. Mildly bitter, though it gives some random spikes and with a dry and toasted like aftertaste.
Light to medium body, but still a bit watery, which is unexpected. Carbonation quite low, tiny bubbles.
Classic, used to love it 15 years ago, but general benchmark moved up. Now there are lots of better choices.
