Beer Review: Guinness 250th Anniversary Stout


Beer: Guinness 250th Anniversary Stout
Brewer:  Guinness & Co.
Source:  Draught
Rating: *** (7.3 of 10)
Comments: This commemorative beer is available for a limited time.  Basically it is a carbonated version of the stout that made Dublin famous.  The pint I was served was rich & dark, but surprisingly not much head (the bartender poured it quickly too, although I don’t know if that matters for this version).  The beer has a peaty aroma and the same Guinness flavor but much fresher and lighter.  This is a tasty alternative to Guinness Stout that people who don’t like the original because it’s too “heavy” may like better.  I’d try it again, but I’m still smitten with good old fashioned Guinness.
