In centuries past, Samhain (pronounced saw-wen) was the festival held every year on All Hallows’ Eve in celebration of the end of the fall harvest and the coming of winter. Legend tells that on this night, restless spirits are beckoned from the darkness with bonfires and sweet offerings from the bountiful fall harvest. GUINNESS® Red Harvest Stout captures the spirit of this ancient Celtic tradition and represents Guinness’ brewmasters’ own crafting of this special offering to adult consumers for this fall season.

    I picked this beer up from the Kroger in Salem, Va. If I am being honest, I don't really "get" this beer. While it was certainly better than decent, it sort of tasted like a Guinness Lite. The color is a tad lighter than the standard and the flavor a bit sweeter. In the end, if I am going to have a Guinness, I'll stick to the original. It's a "one-and-doner" for this guy.

    Nitro can. Beautiful brownish ruby pour, with the trademark Guinness waterfall from the nitro widget, ample lacing. Thin, too thin to be called a stout, watery roasted malts, slightly sweet, hint of earthy hops. Like my second ex-wife: lovely and easy on the eyes, not much going on inside the container. The glass is full and nobody's home.

    Pours a clear, dark chestnut with a velvety smooth light tan head like traditional Guinness. Aroma is malty with a hint of horehound, not strong and not stouty but still OK. Slightly sweet malt forms the core of the flavor, which has hints of caramel and horehound and a woody touch. A stout? I don't think so - but still quite drinkable. Velvety smooth flavor has some good fizz. Hey, it's Halloween, aka Samhain, so boo-toms up!

    I really wanted to like it. In the end, it is all cream, too smooth, and darn near flavorless. It's a watered down Guinness Stout. I'm a little surprised they let this out the door.

    A deep, dark mahogany with a tinge of brown. Thanks to the nitro cap a big frothy textured oh so light beige head rising robustly above. Great hang time on that head. It settles eventually into a light cap. Light roasty, vanilla nose. More of the same, more intense in the tasting with some grassiness. Light medium bodied with a lot of creaminess.

    Appears a dark crimson toned red body. A large head of beige fluff never goes away and leaves scattered lacing stuck around the glass. Smell is of fresh bread, caramel,a touch of roast, and cream.Taste is of the mentioned aromas with vanilla, and caramel coming to mind atop a doughy base. Mouthfeel is creamy, medium bodied, with a light finish. Overall its just ok.

    I didn't read the can and don't get the point of this beer. As I am less a fan of the original Guiness, draft, etc... And this seems like a slightly lighter in color and roast version of the regular beer. Nice malt backbone, smooth but watery, like a nitro amber stout hybrid. Once will be enough for me.

    I didn't understand why Guinness made this beer until I read the back of the can. Now I only wonder why a company waits 100 years to brew a new beer and then makes this one (don't even get me started on black lager). This beer pours and smells just like the original Guinness. It is a nitrogenated beer via a widget. The color is a little lighter... I can see through this one. I'll call it ruby red. Mouth feel is the same as Guinness. The taste is lighter. Less burnt grain. A little sweet. Finish is dry. This is a good beer. Just not too different than the original.
