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

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”!

I agree with the general consensus that you are better of with a draft. This has a more carbonated and less smooth finish. It is still a robust, rich stout though and I will definitely get it again.

Now this has a kick. Theres miles of difference between draught (or canned) and this, so don’t expect it to taste like it did on tap. Bottled Guinness has the worst aftertaste though.

Without a doubt, the beer that put hair on the chest of many a sissy-fied pilsener-drinking lad. I prefer in the carbo bottle to the nitro bottles/cans. Berry/coffee/roast flavor and aroma. You guys know what it looks like. Keeps one ’regular’ if you have more than 3 at a sitting.

UPDATED: JAN 5, 2008 Very dark brown color with a big tan head. Weak roasted aroma. Bitter roasted flavor. Chocolate finish.

After two of these my mouth feels like I’ve been gargling pennies.

Starts out sweet and a little chocolaty, then bitters up and leaves a bitter, ’soapy’ aftertaste in your mouth. I prefer the draught (on tap or in the can)
