Stronger flavor than original and I prefer it that way. Chocolate-y dark coffee flavor. Can't go wrong with this.

I have been drinking this for years but a review update needed. It pours rich and dense tan head not but but compact and tight. The taste at first is of a bit sweet Liquorice and cherryish. The feel is most powerful without being too sweet or overpowering finish. One of the best beers to just swish around in the mouth and capture the flavor. It actually works on a hot day or cold depending on the palate need at the time. Years ago I remember the ABV being 6% but clearly is 5.6 now. I would like to know the story and if I am correct. The beer is just wonderful and sometimes overlooked by all the micros. A true classis I alwasy have on hand.

Off the hard stuff, running, nothing like a Guinness after a day made of work and running for health. So well balanced. Like the extra stout from the bottle better than the draught these days, though i like the pub draught atmosphere of course as much as the living room. I dream of this beer on my runs and keep it to two a day in training. A beauty.

From a 22oz bottle, imported from Ireland (not brewed in Baltimore), bottle # L3036GD002 / 00:08 into a Guinness pint glass. Very drinkable with just enough body to balance the bitterness, with a low creaminess so as not to be coating on the palate. Not my favorite style, but when compared to the style requirements, its almost as if they the style was written based on this beer. Regardless, I can't rate it a five just yet. 4.25

A – Pours a clear but opaque black in the glass with red highlights with a three-finger frothy light tan head that slowly dissipates. 4.5

S – Dry and roasty, nothing burnt, sweet, nor coffee. Some very minor dark chocolate. 4.0

T – Roasty malt but dominated by a dry almost burnt hoppy bitterness. No sweetness or hop flavors. 4.25

MF – Medium light body with a dry, almost astringent finish. Not creamy in my opinion (but not a nitro pour). 4.0
