Guinness porter pack.

Sam's had an eighteen pack that there called a brewmasters pack or something. Three sets of six; one set was an east India porter that was lovely. Somewhat like the extra stout, but more refined and gentle, without sacrificing that same spicy flavor. The Dublin stout was also good, but by no means a top grade beer. It was rather flat and whiny, reminiscent of Guinness draught. The third was purportedly similar to extra stout, but not really. It had similar taste and character, but once again, it lacked the pop of a true knockout beer.

The Dublin porter disappointed me. The west Indies porter is a must. The third one was, (obviously)forgettable, but still a quality beer that should still make someone with a wide ranging palate happy.

I suggest that most really serious beer drinkers should pass on the pack, but hop on the west Indies porter if it is released alone.

The pack itself would be a great group beer, handing out the Dublin porter to some and reserving the others for people who take their beer more seriously.
