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

Deep black pour with a frothy, tan head. It has a sugary sweet aroma with mild chocolate. The medium body has smooth texture, sweet taste, and a dry finish.

I don’t know about "Best beer in the world", but definitely a better than average dark beer. A little lighter for a stout, but still medium-heavy in appearance and mouthfeel. Has a good flavor....mainly of chocolate malts, little bit of caramel, and minor hops. Slightly bitter going down. Overall, a quality beer, recommended for anyone who hasn’t tried.

Picked up a six-pack for the first time in years because it was on sale on St. Patty’s day. Very little aroma, taste is stale and rather harsh. Improved a bit as it warmed up

Bottle to shaker glass. Pours deep red/black, 2 finger off white head, nice lacing with some retention. Aroma of roasted malt, burnt sugar and coffee. Taste is malty sweet with a slight bitterness going on. Light bodied, moderate carbonation, slightly watery mouth feel. Finishes sweet with tasting notes of roast, salt, caramel, bitter nuts, coffee and dark chocolate. Guinness also seems to have a flavor that is hidden in the recipe that makes it taste like "Guinness". For St. Pat’s day............

UPDATED: MAR 18, 2015 Roast coffee and some stale funk aroma. Dark brown color with foamy tan head. Flavors of coffee, cherry, bitter chocolate, roasty and slightly bitter finish. Never can tell how long these bomber bottles have been sitting on the shelf or does INBev ferment in fiberboard drums? In my experience the version they sell in Ireland (and the British Isles) tastes better.

Poured from 12 oz bottle into pint glass. 3 finger tan head slow to go. Lots of lacing. Malty aromas of hay and toast. Taste is lightly sweet with light to medium bitterness.very mild roasty flavor, more grainy. Little bit of a rough finish. The Beer was ok. Overall not what I expected. Was expecting a more flavorfull version of regular guiness stout. This is more like a less smooth version. Probaly won’t bother buying again.

Pours the part with a nice fluffy cream hued head that leaves a thick lacing coating as this is downed. Light roasted coffee, faint chocolate. Light to medium body.

Bottle from Pig in Lake Geneva. Pours black but without the wonderful swirl of a draft Guinness. Damn, I love that swirl. Nose has some of the usual expected mild stout; taste the same....good but not wonderful....need a draft!

Old rating. Poured into an English tulip pint. Beautiful deep black with ruby highlights and nice creamy beige head. Not much aroma to speak of...only a faint toasted maltiness. Well-balanced with roasted malts and slight hoppy bitterness on the finish.
