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 would rather drink Miller or Labatts just because the expectation of drinking a Guiness is so high that I was amazingly disappointed by the amazingly weak liquid that came out of the Guiness bottle. It might have sufficed if I had never had Guiness on tap or out of a can.

Much better than Guinness Draught in a Bottle.

UPDATED: JAN 11, 2004 Re-rate: I loved this beer 2 years ago. Now I have a hard time getting ready to drink it for free. Weird middle taste. First rating: Guinness is good for you! The can much smoother, the tap is even better, but the Extra Stout won't let you down.

This is a strong stout. The flavor reminds me of black coffee. Definitely let it get a little warm before you drink it. Be careful, it bites back.

Great stuff... especially when bought in Europe. Had some there that seemed better than what we find here state side.

I try not to think of guinness draught while drinkin this because the two shouldn’t be compared. Nice dark color and head. Not really creamy but nice roasted finish.

Rich smoky accents with a pleasantly bitter bite. The thick body is enjoyable and is followed up with a sharp dry finish. This is a good solid Stout.

Seems to lack body compared to Guinness Draught. I understand the canned Guinness is better than the bottled (though still inferior to getting it off the tap in a good pub), but I haven’t tried the can yet.

UPDATED: OCT 13, 2003 Faint aroma, some roasted coffee and cocoa. Dark ebony in color, lasting tan head. Flavor features loads of bitter, highly roasted malt and a slight hoppiness. Finish is highly roasty and bitter. This isn't quite as nice as I remember, but still of fair quality.

Different from the ’Draft Can’, but wonderfully so. It’s Guinness, with a tad lighter body, but noticeably more dryness. Doesn’t have the chewy heartiness of the ’draft can’, but every bit as satisfying in it’s own way. Yum!
