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 an 1801 entry in our brewers’ diaries, Guinness West Indies Porter is complex yet mellow, hoppy with notes of toffee and chocolate.

What the Beerdrinker says:

Looks exactly like a standard Guinnes, dark with a really creamy coffee coloured head, which lasts for a long time.  It has a really powerful coffee, oats and treacle nose.  It is exceptionally smooth and tastes of everything in its nose, in a an extremely subtle manner.  It drinks more like a liqueur than a beer.  A superb beer
