Guinness West Indies Porter

Recommended Posts

I love stout and porter beers, this one I'd like to share is by Guinness - West Indies Porter.

It's based on a brewer's spec from the early 1800's, the idea was to brew a beer that could survive the long sea journey to the Caribbean and Americas from Ireland.  I think it's around 6% (without getting up and checking) and like all good stouts and porters has chocolatey/toffeeish hints.  Naturally it goes well with chocolate - and Atari games.

Availability: UK/Ireland - not sure if it's available in the US.

There is also a blue label porter, haven't seen them for sale in a while, but if I find one I'll post that too.
