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

This is the my personal favorite of the Guinness line here in the states. Bitter and full flavored with a solid roasty character. Lacks finess, but hey, this is a stout.

Has a thinner body compared to the draught, although still has the classic guinness head and a great bitter aftertaste. Overall better than draught in a bottle!

Draught is much better, this is more of a normal beer then a guinness. When I think of guinness i imagine more thicker then this. It is good, but nothing special

A once great beer that is slipping. While it used to be a full-bodied pleasure, the last bottle I tried was thin and a bit bland, just a shadow of the fine dry Guinness flavor.

I really quite like this stuff. Though its bitterness approaches that of acorns (don’t ask), it does have the coffee tones and complexity associated with its draught cousin.

Dark, dark brown. Almost syrupy in body. Frothy head not creamy, but carbonated. Dissipates quickly. Nose is of dark, roasted coffee with an alcoholic finish. Undertones of alcohol throughout the mid. Overtones of alcohol through the finish. Where did the roasted coffee go? Light, lingering bittering.

Watery, but thick, if that makes any sense. Draught is much better. About the same color, smoother, and more chocolatey. Go for the draught.

I am starting to grow more understanding of the taste of a good, dark beer. This however, is still one I despise. I think that chunk I pulled out of my teeth was barley.

Very good beer. Black as 20 year old engine oil and just as good. Very rich beer taste. Takes a true man to down this beer.

Re-Rate 01/04/02: Pours deep brown to black, generous brown head, and sheets of lace. Nose is toasted malt, the start is malt and the middle medium, the finish dry, and a slight hopiness noted. Of course this compares to the ’Real Guinness’ about the same as I do to Burt Reynolds!
Earlier Rating: 8/29/2000 Total Score: 3.7
The beer after its release from the 12-ounce brown bottle a piceous color, the head majestic and creamy chocolate brown and after its desiccation the lace forms a thick and sealing sheet upon the glass. Nose is bittersweet chocolate, coffee, sweet malt and a treat for the senses; start is rich in malted grain, sweet and the top middling to full in its feel to the sense. Finish is benignly acidic, the hops spicy and pleasing to the palate, dry and lingering aftertaste “Ah Guinness”!
