Every now and then I get an itch for a heavy coffee like after work adult beverage, when a traditional lager wonít cut it I go back to the Extra Stout and I am always pleased.

A bit richer than the original guiness and also a bit smoother. I love a dark beer and this one fits the bill.

12 oz Bottle -- Pours black with a thin soapy light brown head. Aromas of raisin, chocolate, fig, brown sugar, black current, and toast. Not overly sweet, with a long bitter finish. Pretty lively carbonation.

UPDATED: MAR 19, 2016 Originally rated on 8/15/08. (i was a big fan back then) Upon checking my inventory i couldnt belive that i hadnt reviewed this one. I used to be a huge guinness fan until they moved production to canada a few years ago and the quality (to me) dropped off. Anyway this is the only guinness that i still occasionally buy. A dark black body, minimal carbonation with a thin head, Mouthfeel thick and creamy. Flavor of malts and a little chocolate. Good finish, still a top notch brew.

From a bottle. Roasted coffee aroma. Classic dark stout appearance with an off white, well retained frothy head. Taste somewhat similar to regular Guinness with stronger roasted black coffee notes. Medium bodied and more malts in the finish.

Aroma ok with roast. Great black color. Nice carbonation, but real real water lean. Tang like on aftertaste. Better than most macros but way better stouts out there.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a very dark brown. Thick pillowy tan head. All kinds of lacing.
Aroma is of dark roast malt. Coffee and chocolate are in there too, like you would expect from a stout. Thereís something else too, canít quite make it out.
Taste is good. A little watery. An excellent balance between hops and malt. Itís bitter, itís sweet. But itís not too much either way. Itís almost a head to head matchup between chocolate and coffee and having a draw.
Mouthfeel is medium, not exactly what you expect from a stout. Itís watery. It finishes a little bitter. Itís a little lower in alcohol than I expect from a stout. But still, itís super drinkable.
Overall, itís excellent. A very drinkable stout. Itís iconic, but this is made in Canada. Iím a little disappointed. Still, very tasty Certainly worth trying!
