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

Seems to lack body compared to Guinness Draught. I understand the canned Guinness is better than the bottled (though still inferior to getting it off the tap in a good pub), but I haven’t tried the can yet.

UPDATED: OCT 13, 2003 Faint aroma, some roasted coffee and cocoa. Dark ebony in color, lasting tan head. Flavor features loads of bitter, highly roasted malt and a slight hoppiness. Finish is highly roasty and bitter. This isn't quite as nice as I remember, but still of fair quality.

Different from the ’Draft Can’, but wonderfully so. It’s Guinness, with a tad lighter body, but noticeably more dryness. Doesn’t have the chewy heartiness of the ’draft can’, but every bit as satisfying in it’s own way. Yum!

Nice flavor, but very WEAK.This includes Murphy’s and Beamish.

JMerritt (1745) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - JUN 8, 2002
Black with medium brown head. Weak, malty aroma. Flavor is initially somewhat sweet, with a medium hop bite and a roasted finish. Pretty good, although not the best stout I’ve ever had.

If only THIS recipe was served on nitro at pubs!

I’ve always heard huge tales about how good Guinness is, but for my tastes I’d rather drink river water. Nice looking beer, but boy, what a horrible taste. Good for people who like imports and dark beer, but for us American Standard drinkers, beware.

VA Homebrewer (525) - Portsmouth, Virginia, USA - MAY 25, 2002
Much more enjoyable than the horrid nitro’d beers that round out the Guinness stable. Nice roasted character with a substantial bitterness in the middle and finish. Full bodied compared to other Guinness products. Not bad at all.

IneedAbuheer (69) - Ingleside, Illinois, USA - MAY 20, 2002
A nice roasted aroma, but would have liked it to be a little more intense. Great color and body. Flavor is good, but a little on the bitter side in the aftertaste. A solid beer worth drinking.

Smooth beer with nice flavor. Not as thick as I like a stout to be but definitely a keeper. Goes great with a big fat steak.
