The Anti-Pumpkin Brew: Limited Edition Red Harvest Stout

SAMHAIN (saw-wen), an ancient Celtic festival held every year on All Hallows’ Eve, celebrates the end of fall harvest and the coming of winter. On that night, the living beckoned restless spirits from the darkness with roaring bonfires and sweet offerings from the year’s bountiful harvest.

GUINNESS RED HARVEST STOUT captures the spirit of this Celtic tradition and is GUINNESS’ sweet offering for consumers this fall season. GUINNESS RED HARVEST STOUT pays tribute to the brand’s brewing tradition with its mildly sweet, velvety taste and deep red hue. Crafted with a blend of lightly roasted barley and sweet Irish malt, this stout is ideal for toasting the changing season.

  • Appearance: poured into a glass GUINNESS RED HARVEST STOUT surges from the release of nitrogen, settling to reveal deep ruby red color emerging out of   the darkness & a creamy white head
  • Ingredients: Lightly roasted Barley, sweet Irish Malt, Bittering Hops, Yeast, Water
  • ABV: 4.1% ABV
  • Serve: Best served in a Guinness branded tulip glass (non-chilled, dry), served at 40-44 degrees Fahrenheit

Tasting Notes:

The lighter roast allows for aromas of caramel & toffee, supported by a sweet, malty biscuity taste. The surging of the nitrogen widget unleashes the sweet and alluring flavors delivering a distinctively smooth, flavorful taste experience.
