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 actually prefer this to the draft, on account of the extra bitterness, which seems to come from the roast malt as well as the hops.

Was pleased with this, have always heard it is not as good as can or draft, but still good. Didn’t keep it’s head as well, to be expected.

This stout has a nice dark, thick head. The flavor is complex, with coffee and hoppy components. There is a good amount of carbonation that gives it a dry palate. A nice bitter finish. Great beer.

A real good beer, but so much better tasting on tap

This is the stuff. Almost everyone enjoys this. Thick and lovely. Grainy texture, smoky flavor.

This is what all other stouts are compared to. The first stout I ever had and still one of the best

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.
