What the label says:

If you were in a pub sometime between 1821 and 1917, chances are this is the Guinness you would have been drinking.  Originally brewed as the XX version of our porter.  It’s hoppy, roasty and crisp with a bitter sweet finish.

What the Beerdrinker says:

A really dark oily looking beer with a typical Guinness mushroom coloured head that lasts for ages.  It has a distinctive oaty, biscuity nose.  It is smooth and creamy with the traditional Guinness iron girder bitterness.
