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

I used to say that I couldn’t stand Guinness. Then I was invited to a Guinness Event in downtown Chicago. That changed my mind. It was free beer and food along with info on Guinness. Granted its not a beer I am going to have one after the other at a bar, but is sure goes good with a good meal.

This comes across as lighter than I remember the old Extra Stout. Very enjoyable fruitiness over considerable dark malt heft. Good at parties.

Not as strong as regular Guinness, definitely roasted but not "stout" like the name implies.

More character than regular Guinness, but not an exceptional stout. Very roasty and creamy; unfortunately that is about all that can be said about this beer. Pretty monodimensional. It is not bitter at all, contrary to what the label may claim.

UPDATED: OCT 3, 2003 I didn't used to like it, but I had a lot over the summer and I can't live without it anymore. I love the color and the puzzling consistency. It's thick, but almost watery when it goes down. Hints of bitter coffee. Really an excellent stout.

I like the original bottled version, before nitro, a lot. I prefer the smoothness of the tap style, but this is great, especially when you’ve been working hard and want to sit down with a beer. It hits the spot for me.
