A lovely head as you would expect from Guinness and apart from the ever so slight ruby hint, this looks like an original Guinness.
There is very strong licquorice/treacle taste which has quite a pleasant aftertaste and there is an aroma of dark fruits. The carbonation is just right and creates some lovely lacing down the side of the glass. Stronger flavoured than a Guinness, and at a swashbuckling 6% it's not for the faint-hearted.
Brewed by Guinness, Dublin as part of the Guinness Brewers Project
