COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Labatt’s brew a pale ale base to which is added the unfermented but hopped Guinness wort extract. Guinness Extra Stout is brewed in Canada by Labatt under license from Arthur Guinness Son & Company. Editor’s Note: It looks like Moosehead is also brewing Guinness. Bottles in the US are from there of late, but Canadian bottles are still showing Labatt. 04/23/06

Hints of chocolate, black coffee, burnt toast. Nice and full, always a readily available favorite.

Very Smooth. Slightly bitter. Dark and creamy. A bit thin but still a good beer.

Not as good as the stuff out of the tap in London. Has a slightly better taste considering the bottle over the can.

A different animal than draft Guinness, but still very awe inspiring in it’s own right. A few pint bottles of this and get the party started!

At first, I expected something alot like the regular stout, but it’s not. Still, I loved its gentle smell and look. The taste is very good, fairly drinkable, but overall, doesn’t have any really distinguishing characteristic.

UPDATED: SEP 29, 2005 Good drinking beer. A great bitterness. Smoky tones and astringent bite for a finish.

Dark Black Color with Med Thick Head. The Aroma is hoppy with some smokeyness. the flavor has a smokey flavor with hints of chocolate. To me not all that great. I expected something much better.

I have to credit this beer with turning me into a beer lover. It’s a toss up between this and the draft as to which I like better, but this is a little thicker, and more robust than the draft. A little bitter, with a nice nutty flavor. Definitely some chocolate and coffee flavors. Great color. My can’t go wrong standard
