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

I asked for a Guinness in a bar and was given this instead of a pint of draught. This doesnít even compare. It has a nice color though and is an average stout.

It much more bitter than regular Guinness. I donít believe itís tastier than Guinness Draught.

When the guinness was brewed in Ireland it had a very good deep ryeish flavor that I liked a lot. Now it is brewed up in Canada and it is so-so. Is it the Water? It just isnít the same taste.

This is the big brother to regular Guinness. Nice roasted malt taste and very smooth. I believe this stuff is bottled in Canada.

I found chunknuts comments to be very insightful. I have had a similiar experience. As I was enjoying many delicious keystones a buddy of mine, who is not real bright, said to me lets pay more money and get guiness. I said why would I do that, but he bought the guiness and it had a bad taste. I said to him why would you pay more when you dont have to. The moral is this beer is too expensive and not delicious enough

This beer is terrible. I am Irish and i am disgusted w/Ireland on this concoction. the other night i was drinkin quite possibly the best beer ever(Keystone Premium). I had about a 12er in me u know just barely buzzin and I had a guinness extra stout. As soon as I put it in my mouth I spit it out, It was horrible I do recommend this to coffee drinkers. If u like drinkin coffe to get drunk then u will enjoy this beer(I dont even consider it a beer).

Big, light brown ice cream like head. Some lace around the top. Aroma is much maltier than the draught. Reminds me of a malting floor in a whiskey distillery - a good memory. Nice roasted flavour, a bit of a coffee in the finish. A good start to friday evening.

This isnít bad, but a bit bland. There are some hints of roasted barley, coffee, and perhaps a bit of chocolate. Not too extra stouty, but not bad.

People! this is not the same as the guinness one would usually find at a pub on draft... of course, you already knew that didnít you... i love this beer, if only because i began to love the extra stout before i had the draft version... roasted and malty as all hell, nice dry finish... the coffee of beers
