Guinness Antwerpen Stout
When the Belgian brewing industry was suffering from the impact of World War II, John Martin created Guinness Antwerpen Stout. It was first imported to Belgium in 1944 and thankfully managed to survive the war. Since then it has become a sought-after specialty beer. The rich, smoky, malty taste is balanced with a sweet, fruity finish. And although light and creamy in texture, it’s still unmistakably part of the Guinness family.
“Guinness Antwerpen is a survivor of World War II. First imported to Belgium in 1944, to this day it remains a sought-after specialty beer.”
Guinness Antwerpen has a light and creamy texture. It’s produced with a lower hop rate to give it a malty taste that’s less bitter than other stouts. Hints of vanilla, butterscotch and dark fruity flavours deliver a sweet finish.
Aroma: Roasted barley, butterscotch, toffee and blackcurrant
Flavor: Full-bodied roasted coffee flavor, with bitter chocolate, salty licorice, molasses and dark fruit accents
Palate: Creamy and light in texture. Smooth with a gentle effervescence and warming mouth feel
Appearance: A rich dark liquid with a frothy head
