What the label says:

A group of enterprising brewers on a quest to explore new recipes reinterpret old ones and collaborate freely to bring exciting beers to life.  WIth origins in a 1796 entry into brewer’s diaries.  Guinness Dublin Porter is sweet and smooth with malt and dark caramel notes.

What the Beerdrinker says:

A very dark beer, but not black like its sister stout.  The nose is initially oaty, but once the fizz disperses it leaves a strong coffee aroma.  The beer has a milky smooth texture, but with very little flavour.  When held in the mouth it is slightly zingy on the taste buds.  On swallowing after holding the beer in the mouth it is intensely bitter.

The Beerdrinker found this disappointing, expecting a lot more from an eighteenth century recipe.
