COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Labattís 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. Editorís 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

UPDATED: APR 4, 2003 Ahhh the original monkish swill. Having been drinking now for 24 of my short 25 years I'm continually tricked into thinking that this beer is a taste I'm going to grow into. I'm Irish for god's sake but despite my heritage I still find that Guinness is a beer better left in the bottle. The flavor is of a smooth, dark, extraordinarily burnt nature. An excellent showing of head and aroma belies the weak body of the stout. The bitter aftertaste could be forgiven if it wasnt the strongest flavor of the brew.

To me, I have had better tasting stouts...it is just a very strong stout, with an extremely bitter after taste, which makes it less than enjoyable...

I prefer the regular stout. Maybe I am a wuss, but this was just too much. More bitter, and very strong. The flavor is still truly Guinness, but I will stick with the normal stout.

RERATE: Have had this a few more times, and my previous rating was way too generous. Nasty bitter, without the charm of the regular stout. Barely drinkable Canadian wannabe.

Not my favorite Guiness, a tad bitter but availability and price make it a good choice.

Bitter, bitter. A little too much. I would rather drink the ínormalí Guinness Stout.

Oily, bubbly, roasted chocolate ale…Nowhere near the foreign version...

UPDATED: MAR 31, 2003 My favorite version of guinness, big on flavor. Nicely sour.
