Guinness West Indies Porter

8/10 Wow! Smoother than normal Guinness and without the thick head. It’s a porter (not a stout) and has a hint of chocolate. Actually very nice! With origins in an 1801 entry in their Brewers diaries. This is a complex yet mellow hoppy with notes of toffee and chocolate.  6%
