I haven't found it in my area yet.

Here's a little blurb:

"Guinness is a company that relies on tradition. That's only to be expected from a brewer that is only 250 years into a 9,000-year-lease of its flagship brewery at St. James's Gate in Dublin.

However, in honor of that 250 years, the maker of the world's top-selling stout has come up with a new stout beer for the U.S. market, a maltier, fizzier version of its older, creamier beer that also has 5% alcohol compared to the 4.2% level in Guinness Draught.

"This is more about refreshment and zing," said Fergal Murray, the Guinness master brewer who created the new carbonated brew.

The limited-edition Guinness 250 Anniversary Stout is scheduled to be available in U.S. bars and selected stores on Friday, April 24, the first new stout Guinness has exported to the U.S. since it began selling Guinness Draught here in the mid 1960s."

Yes yes yes..........I'm on a mission today. That has to be bought and sampled. There's no way around it. It has to be done. With our share of specialty stores around here, surely I can find the end of that rainbow. I usually go weekly and buy a six pack of some ale/lager/stout that I've never had. Now the heavens are shining down today as the 'King of Stouts' has marketed a "new" drink!!!! Oh happy day. beer_mug.gif

I had it when I was in Boston last weekend.

It's sweeter than Guinness' standard dry stout, but it also packs a roasty punch.

If I had to label it anything, I'd call it a cross between Guinness Draught and Guinness Extra Stout with a little extra malty sweetness thrown in.

Had one and it was excellent!
It tastes like a lighter Guinness draught with a little fizz to it. Sweet and tasty. I think people who don't like a regular Guinness draught because it's too heavy, might like this one.
I did go with the Guinness theory if one is good for you, think what toucan do!
Three and ..........
