BEER INFO

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.

Pours the color of dark chocolate with a beige head that is higher than a finger. The nose is roasty good. The flavor has plenty of roast and a faint hint of sweet molasses.

11.2 Oz Bottle poured into a glass
Look - Very dark red/brown almost black. Big head of foam is slow to fade.
Smell - Reminds me of a campfire smore, lots of chocolate, some sweetness, rich roasted malt. Some fruit smell although faint maybe cherry.
Taste - malty, roasted coffee beans, a tobacco-like flavor, some sweet dark caramel, and charred grill which gives some bitterness but not too much.
Feel - Very smooth, not too much carbonation. The flavor does linger on the palate.
Overall i think this is a tremendous offering from Guinness, creamy, sweet, bitter, delicious. Grade is an A

Pours opaque black with a ray of ruby at the bottom of the glass. Tan fizzy one finger head. Moderate lacing. Faint aroma of birch beer, but not sweet. Tastes of dark chocolate, birch beer and licorice. There is a pronounced bitter aftertaste, but it is more like that of licorice. A little watery on the end. Moderate carbonation and body.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Pours pitch black with a small off white head. Smells of coffee and a little bit of chocolate. Tastes of chocolate and some grapes with a bit of coffee. Beer is medium to full bodied with good carbonation, still fairly easy drinking. Overall, a very good beer.

Smell is coffee and chocolate. There’s a bit of a caramel flavor, but mostly it tastes like cocoa. Reminiscent of Guinness draught but much richer. Nice balance of bitterness. Smooth.
