Poured from bottle to an imperial pint. Purchased from the winter sampler. 11.2 oz :(
A: Between chestnut and ruby, clear, with active carbonation and a foamy tannish head.
S: Roasted malt and barley, popcorn butter, plums, grassy hops.
T: Toasted grains and adjuncts, buttery diacetyl, plum, grassy hops.
M: Medium bodied with a zesty, dry finish.
O: Much better than the black lager, this is a decent seasonal English Ale.

11.2oz bottle into standard pint.
A: A head of rather large bubbles that was quarter inch thick fell pretty fast to a thin ring and no cap. Very clear and a nice mahogany color. Reddish hue to the brown actually looks pretty appealing.
S: a little toasty malt, like a brown malt in there. A little hops but not much more than for balance. Not super complex, actually less complex than normal Guiness Extra Stout.
T: here it goes, the big reveal. Not what I expected, more bitter than anticipated. Has that burnt bitter flavor one would expect from black malt. not too much else there, it follows the nose pretty well. Considering the style this makes sense though a mild with a little dark malt in it.
M: feels like a mild, light and surprisingly crisp. Pretty refreshing.
O: picked up the winter 12 pack to give this a shot, not bad but not worth the cost. However the pack also containes 3 bottle of Forein Extra which is really really good.

A: Pours to a very nice deep dark brown, with a good inch and a half of head that dissipates slowly to a nice pillow of foam.
S: Nice roasted malt flavorings with some sweet malt aroma coming thru.
T: Light toasted malt flavorings coming thru with just the slightest hop flavor at the end. Very nice.
M: Light carbonation, no dry feeling. No creamy feeling either like other Guinness brews.
O: Very nice brew here. Lighter in body then Guinness Draught but without the creamyness makes for a light and flavorful brew that i def enjoyed.

Real good beer, More of a traditional ale... not a "hop bomb". Think bass ale with a shot of guinness poured in. This was a very drinkable, smooth beer with a very mild flavor and the aftertaste of guinness. I only wish they sold it separately if only to be able to enjoy a few of these rather than only getting three per twelve pack. I look to see it next year in its own package.
