Guinness-Stout-1817

In 1817, Guinness sent eight “hogsheads” of beer to South Carolina for consumption in America. Since that time, Guinness has enjoyed a profitable relationship with the U.S., sending far more beer these days to our shores. To celebrate the 200th year of doing so, Guinness dipped into their archives to brew a new Export Stout based on the one sent many moons ago. Guinness 200th Anniversary Export Stout is brewed just like Benjamin Guinness brewed it in 1817, with black patent malt, which is a sort of precursor to roasted barley. The result is a 6% ABV stout that pours a dark ruby red and packs notes of caramel and roasted coffee. Look for it on shelves stateside soon.
