A complex beer full of character that's great with food. Strong tasting with a distinctive roasted bitterness, Guinness Original is their authentic carbonated classic. It'll transport you back to an 18th Century world of stouts when the ancestor of this beer was known as Guinness East and West India porter. In 1821, the definitive early Guinness became known as Extra Superior Porter. At 4.2% ABV, it's a mature, conditioned brew for a richer Guinness experience.
