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

Travlr (19881) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 18, 2010
Draught at Rocket Bar. Guinness does not seem to travel well, since this one is more bitter and acidic than its Ireland-borne uncle. Still nice enough, but I would encourage fans (and even non-fans) familiar with the US version to try the Irish version.

Leighton (17454) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 3, 2010
Bottle in a Brooklyn backyard. Poured dark brown with the typical deep, thick beige head. Strong roasted malt aroma, with dark chocolate and light, bitter coffee. Flavor starts sweet with loads of cocoa. Some dry, roasty bitterness hangs around. Medium bodied with smooth, soft carbonation. Finishes semi-sweet and roasty with lingering cocoa. Really good bottle. Seemed much better than I remember.

rlgk (16892) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 1, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 16, 2004 Black with a brown and goodlooking head. Tastes of coffee and cocoa, but there is an artificial touch in the middle of it all. Surprisingly mild but a bitter finish.

yngwie (16306) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 24, 2008
Bottle, shared by Maria. It poured a clear, reddish brown body, topped by a dense beige head. Slightly cellarish nose with cooked vegetables, roasted malt and some chocolate. Roasted, chocolatey, coffeeish flavor with a touch of vegetables. Chocolate finish. Dry, quite effervescent. It disappointed a bit, I sure didn’t expect the vegetables, but else it’s a decent brew.

Oakes (14840) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 22, 2005
Dark mahogany colour with a lasting light brown head. Light aroma of toast, cheap coffee and macro ale - adjuncts, quick & dirty esters (think Alexander Keith’s). Reasonably full body, slight creaminess. Light roast flavour, with hints of milk chocolate. Too much carbonation - not only detracts from the presentation but amplifies the astringent roast finish to unpleasant effect.

bhensonb (13609) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 25, 2007
Bottle; New Brunswick, CA; Could be Labatt, could be Moosehead. Roasted malt aroma. Nearly opaque black color with ruby tints at the edges. Frothy tan head that laces. Medium bodied; lots of carbonation. Starts a bit sour, with roasted malt. The finish is dry, light touch of coffee, and mostly the remnants of the roasted malt. The sour got lost along the way. Doesn’t have the burnt toast I seem to remember from years ago. Ok, but many American stouts are as good or better. Guess I’ll have to get my hands on one from Dublin. Imported Guinness from Canada almost seems misleading.
