Not the same beer that it was
This beer is undoubtably the best stout in the world. Unfortunately the taste has changed for the worse recently; it is no longer as intense and the aftertaste has lost some of its dry follow through. This is either due to a change in the recipe or very high transport temperatures I imagine. The labels have changed too. Still a great beer but nowhere near as good as it once was. I will chance it again to be sure - but both the large and small bottles have the same problem. Still 7.5% by volume but less flavour!
Great occasional treat
Superb! Drank 3, used one for a slow cooked beef stew with dumplings. A bit pricy, but for a slow sipping drink up with the best.
GREAT GUINNESS. GOT A GOOD KICK
