Guinness is entirely the domain of . The one exception is this version, also called GXS, which was originally commisioned by adventurous English brewer and Guinness distributor John Martin in 1944 as he resurrected his own belgian brewery and wholesale business. The taste characteristics are similar to those of the traditional Irish one, but raised to a higher level for his Belgian customers: that goes especially for the alcohol content at 8%. Rich malty flavours combine with smoky roasted barley. Liquorice and butterscotch play supporting roles, along with molasses, hints of vanilla and dark fruit accents. An Irish stout with a continental edge.
The aroma of Cherry CHOUFFE gives pride of place to cherries. It also reveals notes of strawberry, almond, spices and sweet Port. Round-bodied, soft and delicate, Cherry CHOUFFE delights the gourmands among us. It has a satisfying finish, with a very slight bitterness.
Pale blonde with a delicate stable head. On the nose slightly malty with a nich touch of spice. In the mouth gently warming with a round elegant flavour followed by a long, dry finish.
