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

Dark black/brown. Thick tan head. Dynamic. Several layers of roasted malt. Hint of sweetness. Different flavor profiles throughout each sip. Interesting, but not something I would buy often.

Poured jet black with khaki to white head. Dark roasted coffee and chocolate aroma and taste. One of my favorite widely produced beers.

UPDATED: JUL 1, 2014 Archive Review:(5/22/14):Size: 22oz -Glassware: Nonic Pint -Aroma: roasted malt, toasted breadiness, hint of chocolate, earthy smell. -Appearance: Pours a black color with hints of ruby red around the edges/corners of the glass, to go along with a rocky tan two finger head. There was lots of lacing left on the glass, like all Guinness beers do. -Taste: Roasted malts, faint hints of dark chocolate, and light coffee bitterness. -Palate: Light-medium bodied, with a light creamy texture, plenty of carbonation, with a nice mild bitter finish. Mouthfeel can be a bit watery at times. -Overall: This is a fairly decent beer, that could be sessioned if one desired to. This is my go-to beer when options are very limited. Could be more robust and flavorful, as it can be considered a bit watery. Not much to complain about. Solid offering as a dry stout.

A mallty flavor with choclately coffee overtones. Small head and ok retention. Flavor is decent at best, a bit watery but redeems itself with dark malts and coffee.

It has a very dark brown color that appears black and very opaque. Its head is thick and foamy with a tan color that leaves behind light tan lace on the glass. The aroma has dark roasted malt grains with a light hint of some nice aromatic and grassy hops. There is a full robust roasted grain flavor with a hint of brunt sweetness that quickly turns dry with some grassy and floral hops at add a perfect balance of bitterness to stand up to the malty goodness. On the palate it is starts of smooth then turns very dry and crisp inside of a very drinkable medium body with a nice bitter fading finish. It’s much fuller in flavor and body than its nitro injected Cousin Guinness Draft.

Pour from a 22oz. Pitch black with tan head. Not a big aroma, bit of roasted malt. Taste is burnt malt and licorice with a dry, bitter finish.

swesson (174) - Highlands Ranch, Colorado, USA - MAY 23, 2014
Poured from a 6 pack bottle. Not really a stout. Not sure how they define it, however. Big thick, foamy light brown head. Smells breast and yeasty. Tastes of light caramel and a bit of nuts. Very light taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

22 FL. OZ ($2.99) Pretty good stuff, not my absolute favorite beer but a pretty safe bet when options are limited. a very thick and bready beer. head is strong enough to hold a guitar pick on top without it sinking \m/ \m/

Mine was on nitro when rated. Pours a very dark brown/black with a super thick creamy head. Aroma is chocolate caramel malt with dark fruit notes and Vanilla with cocoa. Taste follows the Aroma perfect with a ultra smoothness to it. Awesome brew!!
