Guinness Red Harvest Stout

This is a seasonal release from the Guinness Brewery of Dublin, Ireland. It pours from a can with a gas widget. The beer pours nearly black, very dark brown, bit of ruby. There is a half inch to inch of extremely creamy head of pale light brown foam that leaves a curtain of thick lacing down the glass. The aroma is roasted malt, tangy, mineral, light caramel, light dark fruits. The taste follows the aromas directly, a touch of nuttiness. It drinks very smooth and creamy.  The finish is lightly to moderately bitter, dry, with a mineral tang. This is excellent and refreshing.

(Of course, there is no information about this beer on their website. Why is it always the largest breweries that have the least up to date websites? They'll spend millions on ads, but can't even keep their own websites updated.  I don't get it.)
