BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Guinness Ltd.

guinness.com

Style: Foreign / Export Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.00%

Availability: Limited (brewed once)

Notes / Commercial Description:
Guinness history changed forever in 1817. In that year Benjamin Guinness—Arthur’s son—brewed our first beer with a new roasted grain called black patent malt. His stout recipe laid the foundation for how we would brew for the next 200 years.

The same year Benjamin brewed his lovely dark beer, we shipped the first barrels of Guinness to America. To this day, America’s favorite stouts are still brewed at St. James’s Gate. Based on the Guinness brewing logs of 1817, Guinness 200th Anniversary Export Stout seeks to bring to life the same dark ruby red color and complex flavor of Benjamin’s beer from 200 years ago. Rich and full-bodied with notes of caramel, toffee and sweet chocolate. Smooth-drinking with just the right amount of bitterness. Guinness 200th Anniversary Export Stout carries on the legacy of 1817 and looks forward to our next 200 years in America.

11.2 oz bottle with nice looking label.

L: Darkest brown you could think of. Half finger of tan head, which dies down to a thick ring. The lacing is watery and slides back down the glass to reform with the ring of foam.

S: Bittersweet. Chocolate. Roasted coffee and such. Kind of weak, but pleasant.

T/M: Bittersweet. Dark chocolate. Roasted coffee stuff. It follows the aroma spot on. Slight hop bitterness. Good amount of carbonation. Medium to light bodied. Has a interesting crisp yet creamy feel.

O: Very good. About the same as regular Guinness Export Stout. Easy to drink.

Cheers!

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is pitch black with a small brown head. The aroma is rich malt. The taste follows the nose but has a nice semi sweet bite at the end.

Appearance - dark black/mahogany color with tan head

Smell - cocoa, black licorice, bakers chocolate

Taste - cocoa, bakers chocolate, roasted malts, black licorice

Mouthfeel - medium bodied, medium plus carbonation, cocoa and chocolate upfront, roast3d malts on the back end

Overall - If you blindfolded me, I would not be able to distinguish between this and the regular Extra Stout. This is a good stout, easy to drink with good flavours. Worth a try.

Price point - $2.29/11.2 oz single

Delicious limited-edition stout, smooth and black in color as expected. Great notes of chocolate, coffee and malt. Very faintly bitter, easily drinkable and has a nice creamy mouthfeel with lingering hints of malt and hops. Not too carbonated. Easily superior to the standard Guinness stout.

Very drinkable for an export stout. Almost no bitterness and burnt flavours. Very light mouthfeel as well, not any of the oily notes you’d expect.

Surprising!

Decanted from an 11.2 oz (330 ml) bottle into a conical pint glass at The Emerald Rose in Billerica, Massachusetts; produced on 19 Oct 2017, if I am reading the production code correctly.
A: Pours a very dark brown to black color with a one half inch, light tan, foamy head, low retention, but solid lacing. Nota bene, served in the chilled glass, before I realized it would be, which would likely have limited head retention.
S: Aromas of mocha, molasses, and star anise predominate.
T: Dry to semisweet. Dark chocolate and unsweetened coffee predominate, with a nice balance of licorice-like bitterness.
M: Remarkably light bodied with moderate carbonation. Surprisingly crisp and refreshing finish for a stout.
O: Clearly designed for the generalized American palate, but still really a winner. Like many Guinness offerings, relatively low ABV, which is only a plus. Glad I was able to get my hands on some, before it is gone, albeit later than I would have liked.

Pours opaque, dark black in color with one inch head. Taste is rich dark cocoa, marshmallow, and peat. Medium bodied, low carbonation, smooth, sweet and roasty. Luxurious, tasty enhanced Guinness draught. Could have several.
