Have had this one on tap and bottle, enjoyable in either format. A good pour, but it can't hold up to the nitro cascading effect of the regular stuff. Every other aspect of the beer is superior to regular Guinness.

The aroma has one of the more noticeable differences, it has this earthy smoke and tobacco thing going for it.

Taste imparts just as much smoke. Mouthfeel has a thicker amount of two row and roasted black patent malt going for it, really one of the drawbacks of regular Guinness, being its thin body despite its deep roast appearance. Sticky, too, and a treat to check out. Wouldn't mind if they brought this back, I only have one bottle left in the back of the fridge and I'm having a hard time cracking it knowing it ain't coming back anytime soon.

Never can go wrong with Guinness. Especially with a celebration brew.
