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

Standard stout. Great anywhere, available anywhere. Sip it and enjoy the roasted flavors.

Disappointing out of the bottle. Had bittersweet taste and a roasty finish. Not worth drinking again.

This was one of my first ’real’ beers, and thus an early favorite. It seems that it was more well-balanced about 12-15 years ago, with the bitterness and malt blending together rather than being separate as they are now. This is a decent stout, but I prefer the draught version, which has a more integrated flavor and is creamier.

I feel the way most people do - this is a good alternative to the draught, if you absolutely can’t have the draught!

English version 4.3%.Aromas of roast barley, coffee beans smoke and burnt rubber which carry through into the flavour with a dry background. Aftertaste is dry with a roasty bitterness. Not a patch on what it was five or ten years ago IMHO

Wow, for a stout thast should be from a tap I loved the bottled stuff. Sure it might of lost a couple of things from the tap to bottle but still the best.

A different drink from the bottle than from the can or tap. However, it is still outstanding and I love it.

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.
