It's supposed to come out today. Here in NM, we typically lag the bigger cities in seeing stuff like this.

First one to taste one wins the opportunity to tell us all about it!

If I see it at the store I'll definitely pick up a sixer. It would be my first commercial beer purchase in months probably.

I like it. Not quite as dry as regular Guinness. I detect a black cherry note. Overall quite nice and SWMBO likes it as well!!

Nice! I'm jealous. The guy at the beer store hadn't even heard that it's being bottled. He thought it was keg only... looks like I may be waiting a little while before I get to try it.

I bought mine at my local supermarket. Granted they installed a largish craft beer selection last year and they carry lots of great imports. I received an email from Guinness about a week & a half ago announcing that it would be released on the 24th so I was on the lookout.

And, MrWhleDr, I have always loved the Gandner Flag and have been known to use the phrase 'Dont tase me bro!' in daily conversation. When I saw the picture on some blog, it was a lock for my avatar.

Has Guinness jumped on the same "triple hopped" bandwagon as Miller?

Here's the description from ratebeer........

Commercial Description:
Made with a double brew stream that combines two types of malts, ale and stout. Carbonated. Uses Guinness yeast, triple hops and roasted barley.

It's good, but for an anniversary like 250 years I was hoping for something spectacular
