Guinness Extra Stout (Original)

I suppose much of this is redundant as it’s been said hundreds (299 to be exact) of times before, but here goes anyway.

The classic jet black pour with a suprisingly rocky tan head. Lots of air in the head, making it frothy and not at all dense. Some very substantial and sticky lacing too.

Much sweeter than I remember before bothering to take notes and review, with a lack of bitterness and lack of alcohol edge until the very, very end. Smooth (not nitro smooth obviously) but nevertheless very easy drinking.

Mouthfeel hits the exact right tone with me, with creaminess, edge and bitterness all coming together to give a magnificently rounded experience.

Still a classic standard. This ain’t the nitro pint.
