Share This Review

Guinness 200th Anniversary Export Stout is an Export Stout brewed by Guinness Ltd., and for the purposes of this craft beer review, the ale was served in a nonic pint glass from a bottle.


The stout pours a clear mahogany hue that shows ruby highlights at the edges. It’s topped by a thick cap of dense, khaki-colored foam that shows fine retention. Following the reduction, patches of residue cling to the sides and a thin layer of foam continues to coat the top of the stout.


The aroma wafts a scent of roasted barley akin to lightly burnt toast. It’s backed by a hint of chocolate.

Taste of toasted bread and a hint of pine lead the palate. A mixed bitterness of floral hops and roast barley follow and is mellowed by tangy cherry with sweet notes of toffee and chocolate.


Its feel is smooth and creamy with a body that’s a little over medium with low carbonation.


The aroma is warm and inviting; reminiscent of walking into a bakery. Its palate seems simple at first, but as the beer warms, the flavors and complexity really come to life. Its feel is silky smooth. It’s not as dense as some stouts, but it doesn’t seem thin and supports the palate well.

Its recipe might be a couple of centuries old, but the Guinness 200th Anniversary Export Stout still tastes quite fresh. Sláinte!
