Guiness 250th Anniversary Stout Limited Edition
Guinness just released its limited edition 250th anniversary stout in order to celebrate the date that Arthur Guiness signed the lease on the St. James' Gate in Dublin. Guinness has not yet jumped into the craft beer market but with release they soon may since this brew may be more appealing to craft beer drinkers. I found this Guiness to be lighter than the standard Guiness Draught with a bit more carbonation, which is okay since it was release half way through spring and will be available throughout the summer. Flavors of bitter chocolate, oatmeal, caramel and roasted coffee start off this summer stout then leads into a bone dry finish with hints of raisins. This is definitely a great anniversary edition stout from Guiness. $10/6-pack 12oz.
