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

Hall of fame, all-time classic - can’t go wrong with this one.

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 ’normal’ 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.

I would rather drink Miller or Labatts just because the expectation of drinking a Guiness is so high that I was amazingly disappointed by the amazingly weak liquid that came out of the Guiness bottle. It might have sufficed if I had never had Guiness on tap or out of a can.

Much better than Guinness Draught in a Bottle.

UPDATED: JAN 11, 2004 Re-rate: I loved this beer 2 years ago. Now I have a hard time getting ready to drink it for free. Weird middle taste. First rating: Guinness is good for you! The can much smoother, the tap is even better, but the Extra Stout won't let you down.

This is a strong stout. The flavor reminds me of black coffee. Definitely let it get a little warm before you drink it. Be careful, it bites back.
