Oh, my goodness, what a treat awaited me in Bermuda. This is served in some beer bars there like Bud is here in the States. Like its Scottish cousin, Tennents, they get the premo stuff in Bermuda. Can I move please? No? OK, then just send me the beer.

This is nice beer, worthy of the famed Guinness branding. Dark and rich brown color with a thick tan head and loads of lacing. The taste and smell reveal coffee, toffee, and chocolate. The mouthfeel is a creamy and smooth delight. As rich and laid back as the Bermudan culture in which I experienced it.
