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

A different animal than draft Guinness, but still very awe inspiring in itís own right. A few pint bottles of this and get the party started!

At first, I expected something alot like the regular stout, but itís not. Still, I loved its gentle smell and look. The taste is very good, fairly drinkable, but overall, doesnít have any really distinguishing characteristic.

UPDATED: SEP 29, 2005 Good drinking beer. A great bitterness. Smoky tones and astringent bite for a finish.

Dark Black Color with Med Thick Head. The Aroma is hoppy with some smokeyness. the flavor has a smokey flavor with hints of chocolate. To me not all that great. I expected something much better.

I have to credit this beer with turning me into a beer lover. Itís a toss up between this and the draft as to which I like better, but this is a little thicker, and more robust than the draft. A little bitter, with a nice nutty flavor. Definitely some chocolate and coffee flavors. Great color. My canít go wrong standard

Itís a beautiful beer. The pour is awesome to watch, the taste is a bit bitter but hey it is stout. The flavour is superior to most other stouts. The only one that was better was a stout I had in northern England one night...I worked late that night and sadly i canít remember the name...tragic.

About the same as Guinness draught but has a deeper roasted flavour and a bit more bitterness to it.

I prefer Guinness from the bottle instead of the can because I donít enjoy the mouthfeel of a nitrogen beer. For those of you out there who have only tasted Guinness on tap or in the can, try this beer ... itís almost like trying something new. Very chewy with tons of caramel. Characteristic Guinness bitterness and astringency. Mouth puckering sour ... with plenty of coffee and chocolate flavor. A wonderful beer for dark winter nights.
