Had heard this was coming out, was excited, and much to my surprise the other day at Safeway, there it was! Picked a pack and took ‘er home and popped ‘er open and here you go. I figure folks that have been making beer for 250 years can’t go too wrong… so dove right in. 🙂
In summary, daddy likes… in more detail, it looks nearly identical to regular Guinness from a body color/complexion perspecitve. The head is not as creamy, but that is fine. It is still respectable. The nose is slightly bitter and malty and this carries through the rest of the tasting experience. I will say, though that it is overall more robust from start to finish in a really good way. Reminds me more of a a black lager than a stout.
In the end, a great addition to the Guinness offerings and I hope they bring it back as a standard.
