Guinness 200th Anniversary Export Stout

In 1817 Benjamin Guinness, grandson of founder Arthur Guinness began using black patent malt to give their stouts their deep dark black color. These were the first beers from the brewery to make their way across the pond to America, specifically, South Carolina.

Fast forward to 2017 and this new brew, Guinness 200th Anniversary Export Stout, inspired by the 1817 version, continues the tradition of using the Black Patent malt.

The beer pours with the dark color and rich, creamy, tan colored foam head that you'd expect from a Guinness stout.  It's a very smooth beer with just a touch of bitterness. The flavor is really complex with a really good balance of roasted malt, toffee and sweet chocolate.

Paired really well with the desserts we had on Thanksgiving.

Now if only I can get someone from Guinness to teach me to pour the perfect pint. :)

Grab one (or two), you won't be disappointed!
