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

Not as good as the Extra Stout. Lighter in palate and flavour.

More bitterness than the draught version or regular Guiness Stout. A nice beer.

I love Guinness...however, this just doesn’t compare to tap or the can...Why the hell would you buy bottles if the can is right next to them...

Has a thinner body compared to the draught, although still has the classic Guinness head and a great bitter aftertaste. I enjoy this beer better than draught in a bottle/can.

UPDATED: NOV 10, 2006 From the bottle to a chilled mug: pours deep black with a decent, cardboard-colored head. Aroma of malts and bread dough. Starts bitter chocolate and roasted malts and finishes with a very nice, tangy yet bitter finish. Good stuff, and remarkable for such a mass-produced product.

A great stout. Full body and rich, just like I like it. I love the aftertaste, stays with you and is warm toasty.

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!
Earlier Rating: 1/14/2002 Total Score: 2.9
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
