Guinness 200th Anniversary Export Stout Beer Review

From Guinness, the Guinness 200th Anniversary Export Stout pays homage to Benjamin Guinness and the first beer brewed with a new roasted grain called black patent malt. It was this recipe that Guinness says laid the foundation for the brewing of their beer over the next 200 years. Drinking this beer is drinking a bit of history and tradition.

For me, I will say that I felt this in the beer as there was a feeling of simplicity and traditional age, much like other traditional styled beers. Overall, I found the beer to be solid with a good amount of roastiness, chocolate, coffee and a bittering note throughout. There was a good maltiness but like a good amount of the other Guinness beers, I also felt a certain amount of thinness which also affected my overall perception of it. I personally have come to like my stouts with good body, and this one was just a little too light for me. This being said, it is a decent tasting beer and fits fine into the Guinness line especially for those that enjoy the Guinness Draught and even Guinness Extra Stout. Check out my video to see and hear more on this one. And if you have had this one before then let me know what you think by leaving a comment.
