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

Good But not close to the can...the extra stout is something i have yet to appreciate much..although guinness is the best thing out there in the can. Very smooth but extremeley bitter, perfect head

I walk into the little market by my house to pick up some milk, and lo and behold, in the cooler, they are stocking bottles of this stuff (St. Patrick’s Day must be coming up, eh?). This store caters to the Busch and Miller High Life crowd, so seeing Guinness Extra Stout was surprising. The cashier rang it up, looked at me and said...’Is this beer?’. I assured her it was (she needed to know to hit the ’beer’ key on the cash register.). I give this perfect marks for appearance. No, it doesn’t give the show the nitro can or draft do, but it looks incredible in the glass with a brown, candy-like foam head and pitch blackness staring from the pint glass. Nice roasted malt taste, light hop twang, and overall a bit more warming than regular Guinness. Good stuff.

Very good, but not as good as the tap or the can.

Very disappointing when compared to the widget can or bottle. I didn’t think the little devil would make that much of a difference, but apparently it does. Seems thinner and lacking in that Guinness flavor, as well as the famed ’head that waits for no one.’ When in doubt, go for the draught!

Bitter, a bit weak on the palate. Draught is better.

MOboy (505) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - FEB 17, 2002
UPDATED: OCT 4, 2009 A black beauty of a brew. Dense tan foam, sour, roasty aroma and a refreshingly bitter/sour taste. This is nothing like draught...it’s got flavor.

Always a fan of the dry stout, best served at a natural cellar temp, i prefer a gentle cooling.

Not as good as the Extra Stout. Lighter in palate and flavour.

More bitterness than the draught version or regular Guiness Stout. A nice beer.
